Subject: RE: [dsaw-program] Final programme for printing

Made most changes, group wanted to drop "title TBD," so I did.
I really don't have room for Mark's announcement but I will have BoF sign up
in the back of the main meeting room and we can post it there, OK?

Here are some copy edit suggestions:

I would use "normal, italic" typeface instead of "bold, italic" typeface for
each of the lines naming the Session Chairs. Also, I would suggest using the
terms "Chair" and "Chairs" rather than "Chairman" and "Chairmen" to avoid
the gender bias and to be consistent with what is already at "Workshop

It is, of course, common practice to expand an acronym when first used. This
would apply to "ITU-T", "ARCEP", "WMO", "OCHA", and "UNESCO". I don't know
whether we should expand "ETSI", "EMTEL", and "RSOE". I don't think we need
to expand "UN" or "US".

At the Opening Session, we should use the full name (with diacritics) for
Marie-Therese, the same as a few lines up at the "Workshop Co-Chairs". 

Insert line break after "OASIS Welcome" to put speaker on next line

At the title for the presentation by Jack Hayes, boldface the word "Keynote"
and insert a space, a dash, and another space.

In Session 1A, we should be consistent in giving the affiliation for Art and
Elysa. Where referenced as Session Chairs, I would suggest "Elysa Jones and
Art Botterell, OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee". For their
respective presentations, I would leave Art as is and make Elysa's read:
"Elysa Jones, Warning Systems".

Also in Session 1A, I would remove the first "ITU-T" in the title of the
third presentation.

In Session 1B, change capitalization from "THOUVENOT" to "Thouvenot". Also,
I would delete "Dr." and "Scientist -", expand "Org." to "Organization" and
insert a space before "National Epidemic"

For Ashbindu Signh, insert a comma after "Environment Programme"

For Gordon Gow, change " - " to a comma.

In Session 2, at Peter Koltermann, insert a comma after "Head" and insert a
comma after "Commission". 

Session 3 has three different names. I would suggest just calling it
"Birds-of-a-Feather Meeting Opportunities". I would further suggest that we
do not list "Suggested Topics".

At Session 4, the Session title line should be bold typeface.

The title of the presentation by Tony Rutkowski should not be given in all

At the Closing Panel,  change "Session #1 (part #1)" to "Session 1A", change
"Session # 1 (part #2)" to "Session 1B" and remove all of the other "#"
number signs.

Also in the Closing Panel, make "Question and Answer Period" the same as all
others, i.e., "Question and Answer Period - Session Chair" in bold typeface.

I also have a question: Should we include a line about a related session on
"Cell Broadcast" being convened by Mark Wood on Thursday evening:

interested parties to attend.
