RELEASE DATE: February 4, 2000

Candidate Applications and Technical proposals are requested for the IEEE P802.15 High Rate
Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) standards. This document also describes the
process and requirements for responding to this Call.

The Call is divided into Applications and Proposals. Proposals may be Physical (PHY) Layer,
Media Access Controller (MAC), and Systems proposals that could be used to meet the High
Rate WPAN Project Authorization Request (PAR) goals. Normally, the Call for Applications
(CFA) would be completed prior to the Call for Proposals (CFP). However, work already done
by the 802.11 WPAN Study Group (now 802.15), the 802.11 Multimedia MAC team, other
consortium, standards activities and manufacturers will allow us to collect and analyze the data
for this category of WPAN in parallel. It is expected that this will speed the standards process
and make it more useful to industry.


CALL FOR INTENT: Due March 6, 2000
The Call for Intent is a 30-day process in which all interested parties are asked to identify their
intention to submit applications and/or proposals. YOU MUST DELARE YOUR INTENT.
You may decide later to retract your intent, but it must be declared. The purpose of this call is to
enable scheduling during the March, May and July meetings, and to make sure that late
submission positioning does not cause all contributors to wait for the last meeting. The Call
phase will conclude at the July meeting. The meeting venues and agendas will be posted on the

web at: HYPERLINK Http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/Meeting_Plan.html
http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/Meeting_Plan.html at least 30 days before the
meeting.

 Please describe the scope of your proposal (Application, PHY, MAC, System), a general
description of the PHY and or MAC approach, company affiliation, title, contact information,
and when you will be ready to present. Provide enough data to help the secretary schedule
similar proposals at the same meetings.



CALL FOR APPLICATIONS AND PROPOSALS:
The IEEE P802.15-High Rate Group is chartered (anticipated at the March meeting) to create a
standard based on its Project Authorization Request (PAR) and Five Criteria (5C). The PAR
(document IEEE P802.15-99/165r4) which explains the Scope and Purpose of the project and
Five Criteria (document IEEE P802.15-99/166r2) can be found on the Study Groups web page
at: HYPERLINK http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/HRSG.html
http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/HRSG.html).

This CFA and CFP solicits data that will fulfill its PAR for the creation of this standard. A list
of performance and attribute criteria is associated with this Call (document: IEEE P802.15-
00/007r3_ High Rate Selection Criteria). These criteria will be used to evaluate the proposals.


PROCESS:
All submissions to the CFP and CFA shall be formatted to include the IEEE format with cover
page. The cover page releases the submission to the public use of the IEEE. Relevant patents do
not need to be disclosed, but will need to be declared and available for “fair and reasonable
licensing without prejudice” in order to be considered for this standard. Rules for IEEE
submissions can be found at : ************* and formats for Microsoft Word and Power
Point documents may be found at: HYPERLINK
"http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/Submission.html"http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/
15/pub/Submission.html************.
            .
For procedural help with your submission, or to ask general questions please contact the WPAN
or WPAN High Rate Chair, Vice Chair or Secretary listed at the end of this document. All
submissions should be submitted to the Secretary with a copy to the Chair for process backup.

Documents that are already in the IEEE archives can be resubmitted by making a written request
(e.g. email) to the Secretary including the IEEE document number. Modified documents should
be resubmitted as new, with updated revision numbers in the document and file name. In both
cases, be sure the contact data is up to date.



Submission                                    Page 4          James D. Allen, Eastman Kodak, Co

The Secretary will make the final scheduling decision with the aid of the advisory committee.
Submissions will be scheduled as soon as they are received so the process can begin at the March
meeting.

Some effort will be given to grouping similar proposals to the same meeting. If you see similar
proposals in response to the Call for Intent, combining proposals with other submitters is helpful.
The meeting venues and agendas posted on the web at HYPERLINK
Http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/Meeting_Plan.html
http://grouper.ieee.org/groups/802/15/pub/Meeting_Plan.html

The evaluation criteria, document number IEEE P802.15-00/007r will be used to evaluate the
proposals. The CFAs will be used to adjust or add to the list of criteria, and potentially to
generate weighting factors. The proposals should contain a description, and a technical
discussion. It is expected that each presentation be one hour in length including time for
questions. The submission can contain more details than the presentation. The amount of detail
and supporting material is expected to vary widely between submissions. More complete
submissions could affect the group’s Risk or Maturity rating. A self-evaluation of the criteria
should also be provided.

 Time will be scheduled at the end of the meetings for general discussion, clarification of
questions, ratification of the minutes, so that it can be done with the assistance of the presenters.
Results will be posted to the 802.15 web archive. After all the applications and proposals have
been considered and the criteria list closed, the Task Group will vote on a recommendation for
the standard. If a decision can not be made, the reduced set of proposals will undergo a more
detailed analysis and vote. Additional process details will be defined later.

Voting on the final proposal requires 802.15 voting rights. Voting rights may be obtained by
participating in 802.15 sessions at two out of the last four 802 Plenary meetings. One Interim
802.15 meeting may be substituted for a Plenary meeting. Voting rights will commence at the
beginning of the next Plenary meeting attended. Participation is defined as attending at least
75% of the sessions at a given meeting. [Heile – please verify] attending the first meeting
(March) at which the Task Group is chartered. It can also be acquired by attending 3 meetings
(e.g. March, May, July). As an example, a person attending the March and May meetings will
attain voting rights at the July Plenary. A person attending the May and July meetings will attain
voting rights at the November Pleneary. Further information on the Working Group rules can be
found on the WEB site. Rules on obtaining voting status may be found at: ************.

General communications, including posting of Conference Call meetings, will be done via the
802-stds.org list server. To sign up to that list server, follow the directions at: HYPERLINK

All submissions, letters of intent and/or questions should be forwarded to the Secretary.
