   APAN is currently on the way of transition, Dr. Lawrence reported
   the milestones set up during the structure meeting.
  1.1 APAN principles 0 based on this meeting's outcome should be ready on

                        "Call for Incorporation of Secretariat' is optional.
    Comment 2:  The overall schedule of transition is delayed.
                       Members' active cooperation are called to pursue this tight schedule.
 2. Principles of APAN- Shigeki Goto
    Principles are still under discussion; main issues are:
 2.1  Organization
 2.1.1 Governing body consists of Primary members as Council.
     - The chair will be elected with 2-year term;
       One can be the chair for two consecutive terms;
       One can be elected  again after 4 year off.
     - The chair shall nominate Coordinating Committee.
 2.1.2 Managing Director is the head of Secretariat, and report to the Board.
 2.2 Membership Fee and Vote
     -  APAN Membership fee is based on square root of gross GDP with a factor
        to be determined.  The model is based on TERENA's. (Supplementary Note:

       Members unable to pay the amount using this formula will be
       accommodated on a case by case basis)
     -  No.of Votes ranged from 1-3 based on membership fee is set up
        to guarantee the reciprocity of obligation (membership fee) and rights
        (vote), and to encourage members' contribution.
 Detail of these principles are available at:
 B. IPv6 Task Force- Jian Ping Wu
 Professor Wu overviewed the background, objective, functions,
 targets and organization of IPv6 Task Force.
1. Background: a lot of R&D efforts on IPv6,
   but lack of deployment and liter traffic
2. Objective: to deploy the IPv6 service up to 10% traffic
   of the whole R&E network in Asia Pacific Region
3. Functions and Targets: IPv6 Task Force has 5 major functions,
   targeting IPv6 Network Service, Application, Middleware, User Community,
   Human Resource and Education & Training etc.
4. Organization: IPv6 Task Force consists of three working groups and secretariat.
* Issues: IPv6 Task Force starts from CJK, and it needs outreach in near future.
