I would prefer that the meetings stay in their ususal slots, IPP on Wed and
Thurs and UPDF on Friday.

The PWG web site says nothing about the schedule for the Japan meeting, I
would assume that the normal schedule is in effect. Some may even have
already bought tickets in order to secure a cheap fare.

I was just about to buy a ticket with an arrival on Tuesday afternoon for
the IPP meeting on Wednesday.

For those doing IETF and IPP, it is more expensive to do a circle than to
return to the US, and the cheaper fare makes for a more grueling schedule,
especially if I return from IETF on Friday morning after an all night flight
and then fly to Japan on Saturday afternoon arriving Sunday afternoon in
time for a Monday meeting.

Subject: PWG-ANNOUNCE> Problem with April Meeting in Tokyo


Once again, the 1394 Trade Association has deviated from it's plan and moved
it's meeting on top of ours.  In this case, the April meeting in Tokyo.
Already, the 1394 Printing group has decided not to meet in Tokyo due to
that
conflict.

We have several choices:

1) Keep the meeting as is with a reduced daily schedule

-- Monday, PWG/PWG-C Joint Session and Plenary
-- Tuesday/Wednesday, IPP
-- Thursday, UPDF

2) Move the meeting to some US site the same week

3) Move the meeting to some US site another week (the following week
conflicts
with a number of other things so we may have a problem)

I propose we keep the meeting in Tokyo as scheduled and with the schedule
listed
above.  The PWG's strategy is to be more of a world-wide organization and
therefore scheduling meetings outside the US is a key component of that
strategy.

Violent objections only should be expressed on the pwg at pwg.org mailing list
and
NOT HERE.
