      6. The HoD group recommends
        1. That the Japanese NB be supported in their request to ensure timely availability of the meeting papers to each meeting, to ensure all the papers are available on the server by the deadline (registration by 24:00hrs GMT on the Monday before a meeting starting on a Monday, uploading 24 hrs later), so that those delegates having to travel long distances and/or to ad-hoc meetings, have a chance to download the documents before they start their travels.
          The HoD resolved that the deadline will be strictly controlled and neither the registration nor the ftp server incoming directory will be reopened after formal closure. Any papers that are not registered or not uploaded by the appropriate deadlines will be considered as non-existent for the purpose of the meeting. The 'delinquent' delegates will be able to reverse the status of their paper only by providing, at the start of the Monday Plenary, sufficient paper copies of their paper (50, 100, 200 as appropriate) to provide all delegates who need to address the content of the paper with a personal copy (including all HoDs). They will additionally be required to upload their document to the server as soon as possible after the start of the meeting. Any such delegate whose paper is not so available at the start of the meeting will have their paper formally withdrawn.
          Exemptions are granted for ad hoc meeting and tests conducted after registration closure.
        2. The revised meeting schedule Ireland (July 1998), Israel (November 1998), Korea (March 1999).
        3. The acceptance of the accounts for the Sevilla meeting as prepared by Preferred Inc. The balance is approximately 9,000 USD.
        4. The further promotion of MPEG by means of the Internet etc. There is a need for more input to provide new information. Noting that the topics of FAQ, Press release, current key technical papers and related published papers, already exist, HoD recommend consideration of the following:-
          • All subgroups to have their own home pages.
          • Links to/from all home pages for subgroups is to be provided as a proforma.
          • Standard downloadable players, for such things as SNHC clips.
          • Use standard MPEG logo on all pages and all links.
          • Use of the MPEG logo in home pages of MPEG members with link to the MPEG home page.
          • MPEG-4 reference software.
          • Multimedia Forum exhibition to take place immediately afterNovember meeting (2-4 November) at the University of Fribourg so that delegates can stay over to demonstrate their work and deliverables.

    28. WG11 requests active participation of its members in the finalisation of the MPEG-4 technical overview by active participation in the corresponding ad-hoc group (WG11 N1575)
    29. WG11 acknowledges receipt of the following submissions in response to the November '96 Call for Proposals:
      VideoNTT DoCoMo
      Teralogic, Inc.
      Vector Vision, Inc. and Lehigh University
      Samsung AIT
      Nokia Research Center
      Texas Instrument
      AudioSony Corporation
      NTT DoCoMo
      Samsung AIT
      Philips Research Labs
    30. WG11 has found, with agreement of the proponent companies, that the following proposals
      VideoNTT DoCoMo
      Samsung AIT
      Nokia Research Center
      AudioNTT DoCoMo
      Sony Corporation
      Samsung AIT

      will be used in Core Experiments. Therefore pre-registration for these have been cancelled. Proponents non appearing in the list and wishing to have their proposals considered for Core Experiments should notify Rob Koenen and Laura Contin of their intention by 97/03/03. Proponents not in the list above are advised that the estimated total cost of tests is aproximately 40,000 USD for Audio and 12,000 USD for Video. These figures are given as an indication. In any case proponents filing a final registration will be required to pay for the entire expenses, even in the case they will be beyond the estimated figures given above.

    31. WG11 recognises that constant progress of MPEG-4 towards CD makes urgent for industrial users of the standard to identify a mechanism to solve the problem of IPR that is necessary to implement the MPEG-4 standard. WG11 members are encouraged to bring to the next meeting information on similar experiences and suggestions about their possible applicability to the MPEG-4 case.
