Clamage began by welcoming everyone to the 30th meeting of J16.

Mitsuhashi welcomed everyone to the meeting, described the amenities available in the building and reviewed the procedure for copying documents.

1.2 Introductions

Clamage introduced the chair, WG21 convener and vice-chair. Everyone then introduced themselves.

1.3 Memberships, voting rights, and procedures

Clamage reviewed the rules determining which committee members possess voting rights.

Clamage noted that the meetings will begin at 9:00am each morning although the printed agenda indicates that the meetings will begin at 8:30am.

Miller circulated the membership list and J16 attendance list and explained the document numbering.

Plum noted that discussion of extensions will be suspended until after this meeting at the earliest. Discussion of the time at which extension requests will be formally considered should take place on the admin reflector.

Plum noted Martin O'Riordan has volunteered to be Chair and Project Editor of the PerformanceWorking Group.

Plum also noted that Observing members of the WG are now permitted to participate in WG meetings.

1.8 Liaison reports

Benito mentioned that C met in Japan last week. C published its standard in December 1999. The document number is ISO/IEC 9899:1999. The US has not yet adopted this standard. Benito is confident that NCITS will adopt the standard soon and make it available for download for about $20.

C has submitted a new work item proposal to SC22 and to JTC1 pertaining to embedded systems performance. Apart from the new work item, the C group's efforts are devoted to a rationale and to defect reports.

1.9 New items requiring actions from the committee

Clamage noted a change to the agenda. Tuesday afternoon at 4:00pm, the full committee will meet to discuss the progress of the various subgroups. [secretary's note: this progress report was later deemed unnecessary and canceled.]

Plum recommended that the performance subgroup meet for only two days during the week so that its members could sit in on other subgroup sessions. Martin suggested that the performance group discuss that possibility among themselves.

2. Organize subgroups, establish working procedures.

This had been done (under item 1.5).

3. WG sessions (Core, Library, Performance),

The Core and Library groups will work on Defect Reports. Perfomance will set its own agenda.
