[802.3_ITSA] FW: [802-ALL] Cancellation Notice: 2020 March IEEE 802 Plenary - Atlanta

Dear P802.3cx Task Force (ITSA) colleagues,


If you haven’t already received it, please see the email below regarding the March IEEE 802 being cancelled.  Here is some additional important information:


  • David Law is working on a plan for the Task Forces to be able to hold virtual meetings between now and the May IEEE 802.3 meeting. 
    • I will send you more information about this in the coming weeks once David gets resolution to some open questions
  • As Jon notes, please wait to cancel your hotel reservation until you receive further instructions.
    • IEEE 802 is working with the hotel to have cancelation fees waved or at least reduced, so you may end up paying the whole cancelation fee if you cancel now
  • Your meeting registration fees will be refunded.  However, due to the required staff time to process this, it may take a couple of weeks.  Please be patient.


I look forward to seeing/hearing you again on our first virtual meeting at some point in the coming weeks.  I will keep you posted with any new information I receive.  Thanks in advance for your patience. 



Steve Gorshe

Acting Chair – IEEE 802.3cx (ITSA) Task Force

Subject: [802-ALL] Cancellation Notice: 2020 March IEEE 802 Plenary - Atlanta


IEEE 802 and its family of 802 networking standards have paved the way for global connectivity. For 40 years the face-to-face engagement of the 802 community at our plenary meetings has enabled innovation for the future.


With due regard to the health and safety of our volunteers in the 802 community and in light of the growing global concern regarding COVID-19, on 5 March the LMSC made the difficult decision to cancel the IEEE 802 Plenary Session previously scheduled for 15-20 March in Atlanta. This decision recognizes that government and company travel restrictions now make it impossible for the LMSC to hold a successful face-to-face plenary with all constituents of the 802 community fairly represented.


Please expect information from staff of Face To Face Events regarding arrangement for a full refund of your registration fees. 


You are responsible to cancel your hotel reservations. Details for cancelling your Hilton Atlanta reservation will be provided directly via email on Monday the 9th; please wait until you receive those instructions before you cancel.


We recognize that the timing of this decision has significantly inconvenienced many of you. However, this decision was made out of deep concern for the health and well-being of our volunteers, staff, vendors, and the Atlanta community.
