Dear SLP WG members,

The following message is being forwarded to you from the CCSDS Secretariat. I am just making sure that you all have received it.

Hosted by ASI, the CCSDS Fall 2016 meeting series will be held at Agenzia Spaziale Italiana in Rome, Italy.  The main technical meeting series will be held 17-21 October 2016 and will be followed by the CESG and CMC Meeting which will be held on Monday, 24 October 2016 through 26 October 2016.
For details and to register, visit http://cwe.ccsds.org/fm/ProfileSDL/myProfile.aspx.
Maps, hotel and other information are available at https://public.ccsds.org/meetings/2016Fall/default.aspx
IMPORTANT: Please note the following instructions and process:
1) All Users must have a CWE login. If not, then you must request one:  http://cwe.ccsds.org/ReqLogin.aspx  Several of the links in this e-mail will prompt you for your CWE Login.
2) All Users must have a profile in order to even SEE/VIEW the "Register for the Fall 2016 Meetings" button.  If you have not created a profile but have a CWE login, then you will be notified that you cannot register until you have filled out your profile.
3) After your meeting registration is submitted you will receive a confirmation e-mail, like in previous registrations, and you will also receive a URL which allows you to edit your registration.
As always, registration to attend is required, but there are no required fees.  During registration, you will be given the option to register for lunch and coffee to be provided for €60 for the entire week. Please be aware, if you do not choose to register for lunch and coffee for €60, you will be responsible for providing your own lunch and coffee which may only be found off-site of ASI; as such, this option is highly recommended for visitors. Due to logistics, this option cannot be prorated for visitors not staying the entire week.
Registration will close on Monday, 3 October 2016, two weeks before the start of the technical meetings to provide sufficient time for final logistics planning at ASI.
All attendees that require a Letter of Invitation for visa purposes should already have their letter. However, If you do not have a letter, please contact the Secretariat (Secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org<mailto:Secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org>) immediately so it can be arranged.
Also, as always, dress for the Technical Plenary meeting is Business Casual.

We look forward to seeing you in Rome, Italy.
The Spring 2017 technical plenary and management meetings will be hosted by NASA/SwRI in San Antonio, Texas, USA. The technical meetings will be held from 8-12 May 2017 [Note: This will be a 5-day technical meeting].  The CESG Executive Committee will meet on Monday, 15 May 2017. The CMC will meet separately on 13-15 June in Russia, hosted by Roscosmos. Some preliminary information will be available after the Fall meetings.
At the Fall 2016 meeting in Rome, we will be distributing the visa letters that will be needed for the Spring 2017 meeting in the US.  If you need one to attend the Spring 2017 meeting, please inform the Secretariat (Secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org<mailto:Secretariat at mailman.ccsds.org>), or indicate this when registering online, so that we can bring one to you in Rome or mail it to you.

Here are some reminders that are important whether or not you or your organization is going to attend a CCSDS meeting.
If you are from a government agency that is not yet a CCSDS Observer Agency, you should consider getting your organization registered as a CCSDS Observer.  Information is here:  http://public.ccsds.org/participation/observer_agencies.aspx
If you are from a private industry or academic organization that is involved (or interested) in CCSDS, but is not yet an Associate, you should consider registering your organization as a CCSDS Associate.  Information is here:  http://public.ccsds.org/participation/associates.aspx
