Sutter reported that current plan is to begin Monday night and continue through Saturday. This raises the possibility of moving the C++ meeting back to a Sunday start. Sutter invited comment on this possibility.

Sutter will take an action item to update SD5.

Brown objected to the coincidence of the WG21 meeting with Rosh Hashannah. Sutter expressed regret about this, but noted that it's probably far too late to correct this serious problem, since the contract with the hotel has already been signed.

The Spring 2006 meeting will be held in Berlin. Possible dates are the weeks of March 19, March 26, and April 2. Final dates will be determined by the host.

The Fall 2006 meeting will be hosted by Intel in Portland, OR or Boston, MA. Sutter will take a straw poll to see who prefers Boston and who prefers Portland. OOPSLA is the week of October 22nd. WG21 will meet before or after OOPSLA, during the week of the 15th or the week of the 29th.
