Meeting of ISO/IEC JTC1/SC22/WG5

February 10-14, 1997

Sunrise Suites, 4575 Boulder Highway
Las Vegas, NV  89121, USA

The next meeting of WG5 will be held at the Sunrise Suites Hotel in Las
Vegas, NV, USA from 10th to 14th February 1997.  Details of booking and
travel arrangements appear overleaf.

This is a joint meeting with ANSI/X3J3, and is a full meeting of each
committee.  It will be chaired by the Convenor of WG5, with the Chairman of
X3J3 as vide-chairman of the meeting.

The primary purpose of the meeting is to complete the preparatory work for
Fortran 2000 that was begun in Dresden, and to continue with the technical
work in some of the key areas.  In addition, it is hoped to complete any
remaining technical work on the Technical Report on Interoperability
between Fortran and C prior to its submission for PDTR registration and
approval, and on Part 3 of the Fortran Standard (Conditional Compilation)
prior to its submission for CD registration and approval.

Non-technical work will be kept to a minimum at this meeting (see
Preliminary Agenda, WG5 N1233) and, wherever possible, will be dealt with
by means of written reports which will not be discussed.

The major part of the meeting will be conducted in technical subgroups,
based on those established in Dresden, with subgroup heads being chosen
equally from WG5 and X3J3.

The meeting will be conducted according to a tight timetable, which will be
confirmed during the opening business on Monday February 10th, and all
participants are therefore encouraged to keep their contributions short and
to the point.  A "guillotine" will operate in Plenary sessions, if
necessary, in order to limit discussion and keep to the timetable.

Heads of delegations are reminded that both the Convenor and the host (via
the local contact, Mallory North - see overleaf) should be informed of the
members of their delegations no later than one month before the start of
the meeting.

Convenor, Dr Miles Ellis, at <>.
