4. Review of schedule and room assignment

- Digital Divide BoF can be moved to another slot if the need arise. Regular sessions are given higher priority in slot allocation over BoFs. So the current allocation can be moved if needed.
- Need to clarify with Vicky (on behalf of the organizing committee) regarding the room for the plenary sessions.Should find a room that can accommodate more
than 300 participants (classroom style)
- The schedule for IPv6 TF is currently set on Aug 23 which coincides with the IPv6 summit. At the moment, this schedule is acceptable to the organizers but
the APAN secretariat is in touch with them and constantly looking for an alternative allocation.
- The Agriculture workshop requested a smaller room for their session
- Prof. Joo requested the secretariat to contact the organizers of the sessions without proposals to provide more information. He also requested that the session on Trust Federations by Heather/Internet 2 be allocated in the draft schedule as well as contact the organizing committee and Prof. Goto regarding the closing plenary and general assembly.
- Regarding Saturday schedule, first slot is closing plenary, second slot is general assembly and afternoon is a close meeting.
