    • Scheduling of future meetings

      • Previously it was decided to alternate the start time of the call between 13:00 UTC and 16:00 UTC to increase participation from Asian members, it was commented that participation in the 13:00 calls is lower and in particular we miss the reps from the US west coast

      • Proposal is to revert back to 16:00 UTC

        • Discussion from reps was a preference for 16:00, albeit for Kenji in Japan, the alternating call is preferred however he is willing to accommodate the 16:00 call.

        • Ratify in the call in 2 weeks time, in the interim input is welcome on the mailing list and directly to the committee chair
