0. Roll call
It's an informal pre-meeting for friday member meeting, where no final decisions but discussions only.
1. Part I
  - select special topics
  - Jacquelin Brown 's request  to have 10 minutes presentation for Pacific Wave was accepted by chair,

    and it was put in agenda C. Member Presentation of Part I.
  A. Structure committee transition
     Major concerns are Membership fee, Incorporation and Secretariat  including hiring Executive officer, which

     needs to be decided at least by Cairns Meeting.
     By Member Meeting on 1.30, members are encourged to provide information  on those items.

      Members are also encourged to discuss any matters regarding this APAN Structure transition.
     The main contacts for this issue are: Dr. Goto, Lawrence and George.
     - What's the priciples : first version of Bylaws
     - scheduled meeting time in 1.28(wed) is 1.5hours, which seems short and therefore needs to have another meeting.
  B. Ipv6 Task Force
     The major issue is IPv6 Task Force starting from CJK who has gigabit networking;

      however, eventually this will be outreached to non-gigabit networking contries, how would we do?
       Members are encourged to take a consideration on this issue.
  C. New Member Introduction
     Subject is changed to 'Member Presentation'.
      APNG- The Chair(Matzumoto) briefly introduced the areas and activiteis that APNG focus and he proposed to

      collaberate with APAN in Carins Meeting  by joint sessions, fellowship collaberation etc.
       * Other Isseus
    1. APAN's Mission
       proposed to change the word.
       'APAN's Mission' -> 'APAN's mission is to provide common'
       What if we failed to coordinate, who will take charge?
    2. Consider Joint Meeting with Europe
       Joint TEIN2 or GEANT (in summer)
2. Part II.
    WG/Comm Report
    This part was briefly reviewed.
    Some issues may be
 2-1. Education WG and Traning Committee (whether to merge)
      Education WG has no chair.
 2-2. eScience
     In terms of eScience, whether to have a committee to coordinate or still treat it by holding workshops in apan meetings?
     The eScience ad hoc committee chair (Chris Elvedge) will bring this issue  to workshops and committee meeting.
 2-3. Grid
     Currently Grid has WG and adhoc Committee, which one will be  better to present this area?
 2-4. Event Committee
     Mizushima-san (chair) simply reported the event committee;
     Dr. Chon again reminds members that event committee's main  objective is to decide meeting venue and the thereafter job will be
     transfered to meetings committees. Another issue is whether it's reasonable to decide a meeting venue 2 years in advance.
 2-5. Fellowship Committee
     The current proposal for selecting fellows is each primary member  recommend 2 fellows and the rest will be selected from students.
     Again this need members to take a consideration and discussion.
     Some members also suggested to apply fund for fellowship from UN  and Wordbank.
The meeting ended at 17:30
