After the introductions, members noted that most of them didn't receive a copy of announcement made to the program committee members. It was decided to revisit the committee's mailing list to check the email addresses available there.
Comments given on the 19th APAN meeting include:
All these comments will be used to guide the planning of the next meeting and the new APAN secretariat will also help in the process.
Workshop Proposals Received for Taipei Meetings (as of 1/27/05)
Groups asking for more slots should be prepared to conduct some sessions during the first day (tutorials) or towards the end of the conference.
Action Point: Request each Area Director and WG Chair to nominate one plenary speaker.
It was suggested that the registration fee for the tutorials be removed. This might encourage more participation from the locals as well. But this action will mean that the organizing committee needs to secure more funds (e.g. sponsors) to shoulder the costs. The CISCO tutorial conducted in this meeting was suggested as a good example.
Tony Hey was nominated as a candidate to give a keynote speech for the next meeting. Chris will make the initial contact about his availability and interest. The second speaker is going to be identified by the chair of the organizing committee of the next meeting.
Prof. Joo will work with the APAN secretariat to update the mailing list for email@example.com to include the contacts for the Taipei and Tokyo meeting in addition to the members of this committee.
Before the meeting was adjourned, it was decided to conduct a follow-up meeting tomorrow (Jan 28) from 8:00-9:009 to draft the conference schedule.
