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
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.
This part was briefly reviewed.
Some issues may be
2-1. Education WG and Traning Committee (whether to merge)
Education WG has no chair.
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.
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
