The Security Task Group agenda gives precedence to formally submitted maintenance requests on published standards, approved projects, PAR (Project Authorization Request) development previously approved by 802.1, and other matters arising, in that order.
Requests for agenda items or time to present should be emailed to the Task Group chair Mick Seaman. Each presentation must be uploaded to the 802.1 file server and accessible to meeting or conference call attendees before the presentation begins.
All meeting and conference call attendees are expected to familiarise themselves with the Working Group Policies and Procedures, and the IEEE-SA and IEEE 802 patent, copyright, and participation policies before participating, and to act accordingly.
Meetings, conference calls, and agendas
The Security Task Group typically meets during IEEE 802 Plenary sessions (scheduled in one or two weeks in March, July, and November of each year) and during IEEE 802.1 interim sessions (scheduled in one or two weeks in January, May, and September of each year).
At present all meetings are virtual, held using Webex and provide both computer and simple dial-in access. The overall 802.1 Working Group and 802.1 Task Group meeting schedules and agendas for interim sessions are posted on the 802.1 website (see “Recent Posts” on the right hand side of each page, and use “Categories” below to select specific group agendas).
Additional conference calls are also scheduled to progress current projects and task group matters arising as needed. They are announced by email to the agendas and minutes 802.1 list at least ten days prior to each call. Plenary and interim session meetings and agendas are also announced to that list.
The 802.1 calendar includes all these meetings and calls (with Webex/teleconference access details).
