3 Agenda Items
- As Noted
3. TF Status: Volume 1 was sent to Mary Jungers who will prepare it for publication after the cochairs take a final look at it. Volume 2 will be sent to Mary Jungers today.
- Ken noted that some content will be removed (items not appropriate in FT) to make these final text (FT) documents. The PC will then review and approve them as FT.
- WCM met Monday to review some of the comments. Some complex comments remain. One issue is the question of using OBX vs. OBR for grouping. Manny will add WCM to Gazelle for registration. It is likely to be only New Directions. WCM will be known as Waveform Content Message.
5. F2F: Ken reminded members to make hotel reservations. The meeting will end at 12:30. Monday morning will include a PCD orientation for local people of interest. The actual meeting will likely not start until after that, in late morning. The agenda is largely a placeholder, but the PC will meet Tuesday, PC joint with TC Tuesday, and the TC the rest of the week. Paul asked if Erin can provide a tour. Ken will ask.
6. MEM Security is meeting on alternate weeks and a Work Item Proposal for a White Paper will be coming. MEM RTLS will be Friday.
7. Work Item Proposals: The PC will discuss the proposals. It is possible that these will be voted on at the meeting. Last year’s proposals will be considered and it is possible to add at the meeting.
8: Connectathon and Showcase: Ken noted the weekly Tuesday meetings.
- Connectathon Registration:
o Ken noted that Connectathon registration requires personal registration, then company registration, then someone in the company authorizes registration.
o The contract hasn’t been added to Gazelle.
o Manny will add WCM registration to accommodate registration. Some tests may be added prior to the Connectathon. It doesn’t appear we have sufficient support for formal testing in January.
- Showcase Registration:
o Showcase registration requires selection of one or more scenarios and roles. PCD is unique, and should consider the existing scenarios as placeholders while we develop potential scenarios for HIMMS11.
o Manny noted new opportunities for working with non-PCD domain systems, perhaps with one or two PCD vendors at other pods, as well as messages from Continua.
o WCM likely to be New Directions.
9. GS1 was notified of PCD’s interest. Todd said the Korean Connectathon was successful. He is on an ISO call and will report later. John Garguilo and NIST staff and John Rhoads provided a lot of rapid support to help make it a success. Much was learned that will help manage future Connectathons.
