Re: [802SEC] 802 workshop Saturday 12 March--updated agenda - comment


I see three Q&A options:

1.    Allow questions on a slide by slide basis.

2.    Allow questions at the end of each presentation

3.    Allow questions at the end of the session (as shown in your proposed agenda)

Our ability to control the pace is best with option 3 but the interaction with, and satisfaction of, the attendees is best with option 1.

I propose that we begin with option 1. If there is "in room" evidence that there are too many questions we convert to option 2. I would try to avoid option 3 - the time between a question entering someone's head and getting an answer is just too long and frustrating.

I'd also suggest that during your opening remarks you try to calibrate the topic interest of the attendees. We could adjust time allocations based upon their interests.

Subject: 802 workshop Saturday 12 March--updated agenda

Dear EC members,

Based on the feedback I've received, I've adjusted the presentation times to

reflect the amount of material being covered, as well as who will be doing

the presenting.  See below.  We will have to reduce the presentation times

in order to finish by 5PM and give 15 minutes for Q&A at the end.

Alternatively, we can allow Q&A during the presentations--but we'll have to

observe strict time limits for each presentation to make sure we cover all

the material in the 4 hours.  I'm OK with going overtime as well, if we have

a good audience with a dynamic discussion in process.  I'll see if we can

keep the room to 6PM if needed.

We should consider changing the order of presentations a bit when we meet

11AM Saturday (e.g., process, architecture, wireline, wireless; or some

other logical grouping we agree on).

1) Welcome--Paul, 5 min
