Re: [802SEC] +++ 10 Day EC Email Ballot +++ 802.15.4c China Awards Ceremony press release
I need to vote Disapprove on this one, with the hope that you can
address my concerns.
My main concerns:
(1) Regarding awards and recognitions, IEEE is generally very careful
to specify the source of the award. For example, awards presented by
"IEEE" are rare and exclusive. Other awards may be presented by other
authorized IEEE entities.
In this case, the source and name of the award is not clear. If the
award is one of those administered by the IEEE Standards Association
Awards and Recognition Committee, then it needs to be labeled as an
IEEE-SA recognition, not an IEEE recognition.
Also, the title of the award should be mentioned. For example, "IEEE-
SA Working Group Chair Award".
The release mentions in two places that individuals were awarded a
"Plaque of Distinction" or a "Certificate of Appreciation." I wonder
if these were the "IEEE-SA Working Group Chair Award" and the "IEEE-SA
Certificate of Appreciation"?
(2) There is a reference to "other international members." Since I
don't know the meaning of "international member", I propose to delete
(3) "recently completed IEEE 802.15.4c standard" should be replaced by
the more specific "recently published IEEE 802.15.4c standard"
(4) I think it would be better to expand the acronym "PAN" in the body
of the release.
(5) The use of the comma in the names of the individuals is incorrect.
(6) There are several editorial and spelling errors. For example, the
period is missing after several instances of "Dr".
I think these changes would strengthen the announcement.
