Dear All, 
following the cancellation of the CCSDS Spring Meeting in Huntsville, the 
CESG has assessed an approach for virtual (remote) WG's Technical Meetings 
and CESG Meeting.

Two options have been proposed :
1) either to schedule the WG Technical Meetings during the already 
foreseen week (4 to 8 May 2020), or
2)  to have an  extended duration of the Technical Meetings, lasting three 
weeks, that is  from 4 to 22 May 
Note:  it is acknowledged  that some WGs may decide not to hold any remote 
session - due to e.g. different time zones of the participants . 

The (virtual) CESG Meeting will be held after completion of the Technical 
Meetings, in replacement of the face-to-face CESG Meeting 

The Area Directors have addressed all the above within the respective 
Areas. Some Areas have reported to me that option 1 is preferable, for 
other it is  option 2 .
Still, it is ok that each Area and each WG  establish and run their 
preferred schedule, provided the CESG Meeting takes places at completion 
of the three-weeks period, thus including the outcome of the Areas that 
have opted for option 2.

To  WG Chairs and Deputies:  please schedule your meeting(s) as per your 
Area's preferred approach. Please deliver your Report to the AD at the 
latest by 22nd May.
To CESG members : please prepare the Area reports, in the usual format, by 
27 May. The CESG meeting will be scheduled right afterwards ( I will issue 
a dedicated e-mail on that)).

The CMC Meeting will be held via teleconf as well, 16 to 18 June.
In that occasion, either the ADs or myself will preset the Area Reports, 
just like in the face-to-face CMC meeting.

I hope we will  see each other face-to-face at the Fall Meeting in 
Take care and stay healthy.
