stds-802-16: 802.15.3 High Rate Final Call for Proposals

Bob Heile, the Chair of 802.15, asked that I post this to the 802.16 
reflector. Some of you might be interested in submitting a proposal; 
others might just be interested in their process.

>From: James D Allen
>This is the final call for proposals for IEEE P802.15.3 High Rate Task
>Group.    We have opened the final call until June 2.
>During that period, interested individuals may file a presentation or a
>Letter of Intent.  The instructions are outlined in document 99164r4
>P802-15.   Hot links to a sample letter (document 99033r2P802-15) and other
>related documents can be found within 99164r4.   This is the same process
>we used in the first two calls.  It helps us schedule the presentations.
>Also note that ALL submissions are due no later than July 7th, regardless
>of its presentation date.   Correspondence can be addressed to the TG3
>Secretary, Patrick Kinney at pat.kinney@intermec.com
>[NOTE: document 99164r4 references document 99033r0.  The correct version
>is r3.]
>A new addition to this call, is document 00110r8P802-15_TG3_Criterial
>Definitions.  This document describes the criteria which are, by consensus,
>important to this Task Group.  This document contains the criteria and
>relative weighting factors that will be used to evaluate the proposals.
>At the end of this document is an evaluation matrix.  Each presentation
>shall  rate itself using this matrix.  REMEMBER -  ALL PROPOSALS MUST ALSO
>Because of the large number of proposals, and limited time at the July
>plenary meeting, each submission will be limited to one 30 minute time
>slot.  If both a MAC and PHY are submitted, two 30 minute time slots will
>be allocated.  It is highly recommended that each submission utilize the 30
>minute presentation time slot to communicate the high level approach, a s
>ummary of why this is the best solution for the problem, any special
>characteristics you believe the Task Group should consider (even if not
>part of the criteria list), and a self rating against the matrix.   If the
>Task Group agrees to a criteria, it can be added to the criteria list for
>general consideration.  This allows learning and improvement of the overall
>proposals.   It is also highly recommended that each presentation be
>supported by a document of greater depth and completeness which supports
>the proposal and matrix self ratings.   The process of using the matrix to
>evaluate the proposals is still being written and will follow this Call for
>Caution:  Cost is a key attribute of this class of device.  However, it is
>inappropriate to discuss price at IEEE meetings.  It is important to
>address issues that can relate to cost (such as die size, gate counts,
>process type, processor requirements) that can help the Task Group
>determine if this is a Bluetooth class cost, or significantly different in
>either direction.   If it is felt that Price is being discussed, the
>discussion will be terminated or corrected at the discretion of the Chair.
>Any questions regarding cost can be directed towards the working group or
>task group officers.
>All of the documents referenced in this e-mail are available at
>http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/TG3.html  or the new URL at
>http://www.ieee802.org/15.   A special collection of relative documents
>will be set up to make them easier to find.    If you have any questions,
>feel free to contact the officers listed on this web page for assistance.
>In addition, the Task Group meets Tuesdays by conference call at 11AM
>Eastern time (1-800-351-6805, code 8706) and is a good source of
>information and advice.
