4. Update on 1076.1.1 and Survey

Ernst will start a 2 week working group review on the P1076.1.1 draft standard. He will announce the review to the mailing list soon. Then, a formal IEEE ballot will follow. We are targeting the Sept. 10, 2010 meeting of the IEEE RevCom (or maybe the June meeting if things go fast). More details in the member-private area of the P1076.1.1-2010 revision project.

Concerning the survey, Ernst mentionned that so far he only received 8 responses. He will send a reminder to the mailing list.
John suggested to publish the survey call in magazines such as IEEE Design and Test of Computers. David suggested a faster way by using web magazines such as Automotive Engineering or EE Times. Finally, a press release was also discussed. Ernst will look up.

5. People and Projects

Ernst asked the telco participants for staffing the projects either as champions or as participants. The first result is available in the slides. Champions for the "Frequency-domain modeling" and "Table-driven modeling" projects have still to be found or confirmed. More participants will be anyway needed for all projects.

6. Next Meetings

Ernst is considering moving the montly telco to the third week of the month.

Anyway, the next March 9 meeting is confirmed to be a mixed face-to-face/telco meeting at DATE 2010 in Dresden. Joachim arranged a room from 7pm CET to 9pm CET. The meeting room is free of charge, but not the communication equipment. Details will follow.
