Additionally, there are 2 other documents that are useful reading: (1) a summary of the 8 application presentations from the Study Group 3a call for applications and definition of the fundamental requirements implied by applications (draft document: IEEE P802.15-03/030 Alternate PHY Technical Requirements - latest revision) and (2) a list of expected performance and attribute criteria (draft document: IEEE P802.15-03/031 Alternate PHY Selection Criteria - latest revision). These criteria will be used to evaluate the proposals. The latest version of these documents can be found on the 802.15 TG3a download web page at:


All CFP submissions shall be made using the appropriate IEEE 802.15 document template with cover page. All proposals shall include a self-evaluation based upon Annex A of -03/031 (latest revision).

The selection criteria, document IEEE P802.15-03/031 (latest revision), will be used to evaluate the proposals.

The amount of detail and supporting material is expected to vary widely between submissions. A more complete submission could improve the candidate proposals' standing.
