8 CCW 2006 Proposal by Ty Znati (UPitt) Formation of an advisory board to help with CCW logistics Articulate well-defined themes with potentially well-focused sub-themes within each theme Selected key note presentations about the selected themes (as opposed to sessions with "very narrowly focused" presentations of research results.) Moderated round table discussion, as opposed to classical panels CD of presentations will be distributed to the attendees. Motion: Task Ty Znati with organization of CCW 2006.

9 Update from todays TAC meeting (TAC = Technical Activities Council) IEEE Fellow Program in 2005: –75 nominations in ComSoc 20 elevated to Recertification process of TCs in 2006 –Reorganization of Technical committees Incoming Vice-President for Technical Activities: Sergio Benedetto (Politecnico di Torino)

10 Technical Activities Council Fellow nominations from TCs needed each year: –Now is the time –Process starts February and March –ComSoc committee ranks them Awards Nominations are solicited: –Many awards on ComSoC websites –Nomination forms available from web

11 Reorganization of TCs Reorganization discussed by a committee Vice- President for technical activities. –Organize technical committees (TCs) into groups/sectors –Better coordination of ICC/Globecom Symposia –Better coordination with M&C board about co- sponosrship

12 Issues with ICC and Globecom From the perspective of the TCCC, the organization of symposia at ICC and Globecom is less than satisfactory: –Procedures change from year to year GC 2006: only one symposium can be proposed by one TC GC 2005: Program co-chairs are added without consultation of people proposing the workshops Current status of ICC and Globecom: –Quality of symposia is highly variable –Many technical sessions of symposia are poorly attended –Many TCCC members no longer attend ICC/Globecom (This is bad since almost all ComSoc business meetings are at ICC and Globecom) From TCCC Infocom 05 meeting

13 Change of Organization of Globecom and ICC In May 2005, ComSoc President (Curtis Siller) tasked an ad-hoc committee to make recommendations on re-organizing ICC and Globecom –Committee chaired by R. de Marca –TCCC chair served on the committee Recommendations: –Separate technical and organizational planning of these conferences –Replace the steering committee of ICC and Globecom (GICC) by two committees: GIMS and GITC

14 Change of Organization of Globecom and ICC 1. GIMS: –Committee responsible for strategy and organization –Appoints / approves General Chair 2. GITC: –Oversee and provide guidance to the conference Technical Program Committees –Appoints / approves Technical Program Chair Committees active since Fall 2005: –GITC Chair: Heiner Stuttgen –GIMS Chair: Mike Kincaid

15 TCCC Elections for 2006/7 Nominations Committee: Dinesh Verma (IBM) Chuck Kalmanek (AT&T Research) Call for nominations have been posted on Nov. 4 Nominations can made by email to: tccc.election@ Nominations until Dec. 2, 5pm.

16 Conference Coordinator In the past the conference coordinator was responsible for organizing the review process for TCCC assigned sessions at Globecom and ICC. Since several years, ICC/Globecom no longer assign sessions to the TCs. Instead, the conferences are organized as symposia, with separate review committees. Other TCs who had a conference coordinator (e.g., Internet TC) have eliminated this office. Currently, TCCC is the only technical committee (of about 30) that still has this office. Motion: Let the office of the Conference Coordinator expire as an elected office.
