Please register for the upcoming Fall CCSDS meetings in Cleveland, OH, USA !

Fall 2012 WG Meeting Registration Open
Hosted by NASA, the CCSDS Fall 2012 technical meeting series will be held at the Cleveland Renaissance Hotel in Cleveland, Ohio, USA from 15-18 October 2012.

Full information is available at http://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2012Fall/default.aspx  The technical meetings schedule can be found athttp://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2012Fall/Room_Schedule_Fall_2012.pdf Please check back frequently for updates as the detailed Working Group meeting agendas develop during the next couple of weeks and populated on the Agenda page.

International visitors that require visas should already have their visa invitation letters from the Secretariat.  If you have problems, contact the Secretariat atsecretariat at mailman.ccsds.org<mailto:secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org>

As always, registration is free, but YOU MUST REGISTER in order to attend any of the meetings. Registration will close 7 days before the meeting.  We encourage you to register early, because we need head counts for some events.

The principal requirement for participating is that you must register and must indicate precisely which meetings you wish to attend. Total attendance is limited by the size of the facility and late registrants cannot be guaranteed a place. Please register on-line at http://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2012Fall/2012FallReg.aspx  Once registered your CCSDS space agency will have up to 5 days to reject your registration, so please use caution when making reservations that have cancellation penalties within the next 5 days. If you hear nothing within 5 days, you have been approved.

You are also strongly urged to make your travel arrangements – especially hotel reservations - as soon as possible. Participants will be responsible for their own hotel reservations. The Cleveland Renaissance Hotel has a special rate ($149 + tax) for CCSDS attendees. Please visit the following link to make your reservationshttp://www.marriott.com/hotels/travel/clebr-renaissance-cleveland-hotel/?toDate=10/20/12&groupCode=aiaaiaa&fromDate=10/14/12&app=resvlink  Make your reservations as soon as possible.

As always, look at the CWE to get info about working groups that you may be able to support with your field of technical expertise:   (http://cwe.ccsds.org/default.aspx).

We look forward to seeing you in Cleveland and to welcome you to another important meeting of the international space data systems interoperability community.

NOTE: NASA has been directed by congress to enforce some new rules and regulations about *not* providing food for meetings. The result of this is that these meetings NASA cannot provide coffee/refreshments or meals as we have in the past. Further, NASA personnel *and NASA contractor personnel* cannot even actively ask other organizations (sponsors) if they would be willing to sponsor such coffee/refreshments. Until these rules change again, this will be the norm for all future NASA-hosted meetings. However, our situation for the Cleveland meetings is still OK. At our Renaissance hotel meeting location, there is a “mall food court” for both coffee and lunch, which is inside the same building, and a few minutes from the meeting rooms. We are sorry for this limitation, but hopefully the other positive accommodations for this meeting will make up for it.

Planning for Spring 2013 CCSDS Meetings
We are currently planning the CCSDS Spring 2013 meetings that will be held in France from 8-11 April 2013. We want to prepare the needed letters of invitation for April 2013 and hand them to the attendees at the Cleveland meeting next month.   If you are planning to travel to France for the Spring 2013 meeting and you require any sort of invitation letter to facilitate your travel arrangements, please contact the CCSDS Secretariat <secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org<mailto:secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org>> at your earliest convenience so that we can prepare the letter for delivery to you in Cleveland, or by mail if you will not be in Cleveland. Please note that it is the responsibility of the traveler to research and communicate to us any particular requirements that we will need to incorporate into your letter of invitation. We are not familiar with the requirements of the many countries from which CCSDS experts may be departing.

Dress for the Plenary meeting is Business Casual.
