34 8. ITC recertification Every 3 years We sent recert materials to TAC in February Len Cimini (VP- Technical Activities): no major issues with our TC; ITC Meeting, June 201334

35 8. ITC Recertification Recommended by TCRC Recently: – The Technical Committees Recertification Committee (TCRC) supports recertifying the Internet TC. This TC, a joint ComSoc/ISOC effort, has been very active, especially in conferences. The TCRC will make a formal recommendation to the BoG at Globecom. There are some minor issues that we suggest you address, if possible, in the next couple of weeks. ITC Meeting, June 201335

36 8. ITC Recertification WEBSITE – The website is well-done, up-to-date, and provides a lot of useful information for members. CHARTER/POLICIES & PROCEDURES – No issues. STANDARDS/INDUSTRY – No issues. The TCRC commends the TC on its level of activity in standards. COLLABORATION – No issues. ITC Meeting, June 201336

37 8. ITC Recertification MEMBERSHIP – The TCRC understands that meetings are held by Internet, and so meeting participation is not an active membership criterion. The TCRC suggests that the TC could define other criteria for defining active membership besides face-to-face meeting participation. Please define criteria for an active member, and provide a count of the active members. – Suggestions? A proposition to be done closely on the ML ITC Meeting, June 201337

38 8. ITC Recertification CONFERENCES – 1.) Please be aware that TCs do not sponsor conferences. ComSoc sponsors these; the TCs endorse or organize. Please change the wording where necessary (e.g., page 1 of the P&Ps). DONE – 2.) There is a form for applying as a volunteer for Publications and Conferences. Please see volunteers. volunteers PUBLICATIONS – The TCRC recommends that the TC investigate opportunities for new publications within the scope of the TC (possibly open access or internet based). – Suggestions? Under consideration a possible journal ITC Meeting, June 201338

39 8. ITC Recertification AWARDS – 1.) The information on the best paper award on the activities page appears to be incomplete. Please provide as much information as possible. DONE – 2.) The TC should consider career and service awards in addition to the best paper award. WILL BE LAUNCHED IN 2014 Suggestions? ITC Meeting, June 201339

40 8. ITC Recertification OTHER – 1.) Special Interest Groups are interesting, and could be a good approach for attracting industry members. The TC should have a link on the homepage to the SIG page. PARTIALLY ALREADY ONE – 2.) It would be useful to have a link on the Internet Society website which recognizes the relationship to this TC. Please try to do this in the near future. ON GOING – 3.) Potential technical issues for attention: the role of (Internet based) social media in society, the role of the Internet in software defined networks, and the role of Internet publications. Suggestions? ITC Meeting, June 201340
