Shawn... I'm stuck! I really want to collocate a meeting... BUT... how
does it do us any good if the meetings run in parallel? Then someone has
to miss something and the likely resolution is that "FSGers" will go to
FSG and "PWGers" will go to PWG and we might as well not have combined. I
know I would have a very hard time choosing! Ideally, we'd collocate but
not run parallel. This would mean spanning a weekend... but this may not
"sit" well with people (travel, time, extra expenses over the weekend).
Another alternative is to book the weekend, or the Sunday before and
Saturday after. Again... folks grumbling... but we've got to get the work
As far as logistics... we will put up a URL for people to register their
intent to join the meeting. We spread the cost of meeting facilities
across the group so everyone ends up being charged $45-$65/day (depending
on location etc.).
We already have a hotel booked and would have to expand the room block,
meeting space, catering etc. I'm willing to do this... but we need to
decide on the above, quickly!!
Yes, everyone is responsible for their own reservations. We do negotiate a
rate (and a room block) at the hotel where the meeting is held... but some
people will get better rates at nearby hotels according to their corporate
Can you estimate how many people you would have coming to the f2f?

Harry: We have discussed this to some extent back in December. With the
PWG meetings last week over, I would like to see what I need to do to get
connected to the PWG meetings in Washington DC.
At today's Open Printing meeting, this is the proposed schedule we
established. Is it possible to fit into those timeframes?
Do you have a process that I can explain to folks on what they need to do
register (hotel, meetings, etc.). I am assuming I handle the meeting
registration for the open printing discussions. I am also assuming each
person needs to book their own hotel registration. How do you cover the
cost of the conference rooms? Is this added to the person's hotel bill?

At today's FSG Open Printing Architecture telecon we
briefly discussed having at least two days of FSG Open
Printing face-to-face meetings in Washington, DC

using the PWG SM schemas)
A possible FSG Open Printing meeting schedule:
Mon 31 March - FSG OP Plenary
