Registration will be $30. It will be payable directly to the hotel front desk upon arrival. You must tell the front desk that you wish to pay the $30 registration fee for 802.16. The hotel will NOT offer a receipt. However, they will take your name and provide it to Roger Marks, who will issue a receipt on behalf of 802.16 upon your request.

The registration fee will partially cover the costs of continental breakfasts and breaks [in accordnace with the 802.16 recommendation, cookies will be served in the afternoon!] as well as audio-visual equipment. The IEEE Microwave Theory and Techniques Society will cover any shortfall. Attendance without fully-paid registration will affect 802.16 membership rights.

Rooms will be available at the RAWCON'99 rate of $95 per room (single or multiple occupancy), plus tax (approximately 11.18%). 802.16 is not holding rooms. Make your reservations using information at the RAWCON'99 hotel page. The hotel has reported to some individuals that it is sold out on Wednesday, August 4.

The 802.16 Session is held in conjunction with the August 1-4 1999 IEEE Radio and Wireless Conference (RAWCON'99). RAWCON'99 offers technical sessions, panels, and workshops of interest to many 802.16 participants. Registration for RAWCON'99 is handled separately from that of 802.16. For RAWCON'99, please follow the RAWCON'99 registration directions.

Membership and Voting
According to 802 rules,

All persons participating in the initial meeting of the Working Group become voting members of the Working Group. Thereafter, voting membership in a Working Group is established by participating in the meetings of the Working Group at two out of the last four Plenary sessions... Membership starts at the third Plenary session attended by the participant. One duly constituted interim Working Group or task group meeting may be substituted for the Working Group meetings at one of the two Plenary sessions.
Meeting #2 shall be considered a "duly constituted interim Working Group or task group meeting" for this purpose.

Note the following important points from Section of the 802 rules:

Note that we have adopted the Robert's Rules of Order definitions of the term session: "one or more connected meetings transacting a single order of business."
