Dear Michael, dear colleagues from the CMC,

in ESA we expect that travel will be possible in October for the midterm 
CMC meeting in Toulouse.

So, the answer is "Yes" for in-person attendance.

Best regards,

Dear CMC Members,
With so many CMC members being out of the office during August it proved 
too difficult to schedule a midterm CMC meeting with a majority of members 
present. I will be starting a new poll to select a date in September for 
the CMC’s midterm meeting. CNES requires a decision about hosting the fall 
CCSDS meetings in-person as quickly as possible. I would ask that each CMC 
member reply to this email sharing their agency’s position on in-person 
attendance for the fall CCSDS meetings, scheduled 18-28 October, 2021. 
Having conferred with Sami Asmar, I have included NASA’s position in this 
In preparing a schedule for the technical meetings, I have learned that 
CCSDS’s Data Archive Interoperability, Onboard Wireless, and Optical 
Communications Working Groups have decided that they will meet remotely 
this fall regardless of CCSDS’s decision. I know of two other working 
groups that are currently discussing this possibility. Please take this 
into consideration when forming your agency’s position.
NASA’s travel policy at the moment is mixed as each center has determined 
their own travel policy based on national and local regulations. No 
attendance from NASA-JPL will be possible. Though NASA-GSFC NASA-MSFC, and 
NASA-JSC attendance would be possible under their current policies, we 
expect this not to be the case by 18 October 2021. The United States 
Centers for Disease Control has placed the United States and France on 
their list of countries with Very High risk of COVID transmission. We do 
not expect travel for non-mission critical events to be possible beginning
