Bob:

The EXACT placement of the working group meetings and the location of the
meeting have NOT been set for a long time; only that IPP would be at the front
of the week and 1394 printing would be at the end.

In the last few days, we have confirmed that the meeting will:

1) Be in Tokyo all week
2) Be at the Epson building -- 11th floor of the Shinjuku NS building
3) The nearest hotel is Keio Plaza hotel which is a 2 minute walk to the meeting
place.

I am trying to get maps and more hotel options from Nagasaka-san from Epson and
will be adding them to the site later.

The PWG always posts the meeting details by the end of the preceding meeting or
30 days prior to a meeting... whichever is longer.  Since the New Orleans
meeting is still more than a week ahead, my posting to the web site was not
tardy, it fact it is early.  If you chose to make reservations prior to the
details being posted, you do so at your own risk.  Remember, non-refundables
normally only require a $75 payment to make changes so even if you make a
non-refundable purchase you can probably make a change and still be less than a
fully refundable ticket.

Your email says that the Japan meeting plan has been set for quite some
time. I am glad that you have now updated the pwg meeting schedule with the
Japan meeting information; it wasn't there yesterday. I would hope that in
the future, we can have the web page reflect the schedule as soon as we know
what it is, especially when it is different from usual.

All the discussion about Tokyo has had the IPP meeting at the beginning of
the
week.  That was discussed at the last PWG meeting.  The plan was always to
have
the 1394 Printing meeting at the end of the week because the 1394 Trade
Association was the following week.  Sorry you missed this.

This is the schedule for Tokyo....

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

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.

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.
