The delegates are asked to take note that they are thereby invited: to investigate whether their organization or any other organization owns IPRs which were, or were likely to become Essential in respect of the work of 3GPP. to notify their respective Organizational Partners of all potential IPRs, e.g., for ETSI, by means of the IPR Statement and the Licensing declaration forms.

The sooner the agenda is available, the easier it will be for delegates to target their contributions to a particular item. If elections for chairman and/or vice-chairmen are to take place, this activity must be placed in a separate agenda item. Any contentious technical matter which might require a vote to resolve must be highlighted on the agenda.

20 © 3GPP 2009 Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, 19 th February 2009© 3GPP GPP The Training Course / Module GPP meetings Detailed planning mtg As soon as the agenda is available … 1.Opening of the meeting 2.Approval of the agenda 3.Approval of the report of the previous meeting 4.IPR declaration reminder 5.Incoming liaisons 6.Reports from subgroups 7.Matters relating to completed work items 8.Matters relating to active work items 9.Newly proposed work items 10.Administration, project management, etc 11.Any other business 12.Close of meeting Allocate TDoc numbers The responsibility of the Secretary to receive requests and allocate numbers. Currently done manually in some groups via , whilst other groups use an automated web-based tool. Some groups find it beneficial to set a TDoc availability deadline. Contributions received after the deadline are only handled if there is sufficient time. But this is not always the most appropriate way to proceed on a matter.

21 © 3GPP 2009 Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, 19 th February 2009© 3GPP GPP The Training Course / Module GPP meetings Detailed planning mtg After the document deadline has passed (or at least, when most TDocs are available) … 1.Opening of the meeting 2.Approval of the agenda 3.Approval of the report of the previous meeting 4.IPR declaration reminder 5.Incoming liaisons 6.Reports from subgroups 7.Matters relating to completed work items 8.Matters relating to active work items 9.Newly proposed work items 10.Administration, project management, etc 11.Any other business 12.Close of meeting Allocate every TDoc to (at least) one agenda item The responsibility of the chairman, assisted by the secretary. Ensures that no TDoc is forgotten. Several tools are currently in use to help in this task and in tracking the treatment of TDocs throughout the course of the meeting.

22 © 3GPP 2009 Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, 19 th February 2009© 3GPP GPP The Training Course / Module GPP meetings Detailed planning mtg Shortly before the meeting starts … 1.Opening of the meeting 2.Approval of the agenda 3.Approval of the report of the previous meeting 4.IPR declaration reminder 5.Incoming liaisons 6.Reports from subgroups 7.Matters relating to completed work items 8.Matters relating to active work items 9.Newly proposed work items 10.Administration, project management, etc 11.Any other business 12.Close of meeting Plan the schedule of the meeting The responsibility of the chairman, assisted by the secretary. Based on experience, the number of TDocs registered against each agenda item, etc. Carefully plan the running of the meeting in order to allow sufficient time to address all important topics. If time seems insufficient, plan to have evening ad hoc sessions, off-line discussions. It is not always necessary to examine each TDoc in detail. Some documents provided to the meeting for information can be simply noted without opening them, and it is left to delegates to read them in their own time. Sometimes, time can be clawed back by reducing the duration of coffee or lunch breaks. But the chairman must get the agreement of the meeting to do this! Curiously, a meeting can sometimes make faster progress if the chairman calls a longer than usual coffee or lunch break, thus allowing off-line discussion which can reach consensus faster than might be possible during the formal meeting itself. If possible, avoid drafting precise text during the formal meeting. This can take a disproportionate time, and is usually more more efficiently accomplished off-line.
