Length of time requested (this should include time for questions and answers)

Brief description of topic


Presentations should be kept to 15 minutes in duration, excluding time for questions and answers.  Requests for presentation time greater than 15 minutes will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and the requestor should contact the chair prior to making the request to justify the additional time. 


Requests for presentation time must be made two Fridays preceding the meeting.  For the January Interim meeting, requests for presentation time shall be made to me at jdambrosia@xxxxxxxx  and must be made by January 15, 2015.  The presenter shall e-mail a PDF, soft-copy version of the presentation to me at jdambrosia@xxxxxxxx by Tuesday of the week preceding the meeting.  For the January Interim, presentations must be submitted by January 19, 2010.  As a reminder, please make sure that all requests for presentations or submissions of presentation material have no restrictive notices at the bottom of the email.  All such emails will be refused and requests / presentations will not be acknowledged. 


All individuals submitting presentations should review the Procedures for Presenters Page  I would greatly appreciate presenters reviewing their own presentations to verify that they have followed the cited Presentation Style Guidelines.


Also, to support the web site search tool used by the IEEE P802.3 web site the 'Document Information' fields of the PDF file must be completed as follows:


Title: Title of presentation

Author: Name(s) of author(s)

Subject: IEEE P802.3ba Task Force


As a reminder individuals should not forward presentations to our webmaster, Frank, asking him to post presentations.  All should note that files are not posted until they have been reviewed, so please follow directions noted above.


As a reminder to the group, we are a contribution driven organization, and we do have a fairly large project underway.  It should not be assumed by anyone that work will just get done without contributions to drive it.  Areas not moving forward will be brought to the attention of the Task Force for consideration on how to address; as such issues can not be allowed to threaten the overall project schedule. 


I look forward to seeing everyone in New Orleans!


Best Regards,


John D’Ambrosia
