STRUCTURE OF THE MAY NWG MTG.

In order to use our time in Atlantic City more effectively, I would

like to organize the meetings around discussions of advertised topics,

with published status reports and position papers. I envision our

time being divided into three phases.

Phase one is for status reports from each of the sites and for the

introductions of new sites or agencies. Each existing site should

plan to report on its state of software and hardware development, and

on its use of the network. New sites will introduce themselves and

present their plans for attachment to and use of the network. In

addition, work on the ILLIAC IV, the List machine, and the terminal

IMP will be reviewed. I will assume that each site needs 5-10 minutes

unless I am notified otherwise. A short written status report is also

explected.

Phase two is for discussion of current network-wide topics such as the

NIC, the Form Machine Telnet, and Logger Protocol. Suggestions for

these topics should be made to me. Committees should plan to prepare

these reports and discuss their work. Points of view not represented

by existing committees should be explicated in position papers.

Phase three is consideration of new topcs. Som eof the topics I have

in mind are what the long range goals of the NWG should be, what

operational goals the NWG should set for the next six months, and

neither the NWG should have more or less structure. Suggestions for

new topics are particularly encouraged, and these are best opened up

with an introductory position paper.

A major factor in the effiectiveness of this meeting will be the

written material available before the meeting. As far as possible,

reports and position papers should be published in RFC form by 1 May 71.

The agenda will be composed from suggestions made to me; please call

me at (213) 825-2368. I will publish an agenda and schedule of

meetings about 1 May.
