7 CEPIS and IP3 The Task Force has proposed terms for CEPIS joining IP3. The elements of this are: –IFIP/CEPIS member societies should have priority on a national basis for IITP accreditation etc. –That in keeping with CEPIS budgetary limitations, that the "fee" be proposed as €6.5k pa payable over 6 years –That CEPIS' membership be seen as much as representative of CEPIS member societies (particularly the smaller ones) as much as it is seen as representative of CEPIS itself CEPIS would become a member of IP3 Task Force within IFIP on same basis as available to other IFIP members, and with same standing as IFIP, BCS, CIPS, ACS, IEEE/CS for 6 years, with equivalent voting rights CEPIS membership becomes model of regional representation
