stds-802-16: Session #8 Tutorial on IEEE Editorial Process
Expect the following tutorial on Tuesday night at Session #8:
Tutorial Title: IEEE Editorial Process
Speakers: Greg Kohn (IEEE Staff Editor)
Jennifer Longman (IEEE Project Editor)
Sponsor: Howard Frazier
Time: Tuesday, July 11, 6:30 - 9:00 pm
Howard says "Bring your laptops, and make sure they are loaded with
Adobe Framemaker version 5.5."
Below is Howard's suggestion to Greg Kohn; Greg seemed to like the plan.
All 802.16 editors, and all those who will be involved with our
editorial teams, should plan to attend. Before Session #8 is over, we
need to have an editorial process in place.
I'll provide more detail on this tutorial if/when I get it.

>as technical editors of standards documents. Some will be performing
>this role for the first time.
>Please plan on covering the following:
>1) The overall flow of document editing, from first draft to publication
>2) Recommended tools (we like framemaker, and have made it a point to
