Resolution 10 - Initiate Study Groups to Explore new Areas

JTC1 intends to actively explore new areas of work.  This will be done
through Study Groups with the following Terms of Reference:
		to assess the relevance of JTC 1's program of work to the
development in the area under consideration; 
		to assess the state of standardisation efforts in this area
by Consortia, Fora and ITU-T;
		to come, if required, with recommendations on whatever
actions are needed by JTC 1 to increase its market share in this
standardization area;
		to report on its activities to the next JTC 1 Plenary in
November 2003 in Singapore.

An initial list of candidate areas comprises:
		Middleware 
		web services 
		Privacy management

JTC 1 requests its Secretariat to initiate a call for experts to actively
participate and/or provide convenorship responsibilities in any of the
related Study Groups.

A Study Group will be initiated only if a convener has been nominated and at
least 3 additional National Body or Subcommittee participants have been
nominated.

JTC 1 further invites its National Bodies and SCs to identify additional
candidate areas, particularly from the list of items of the LTBP, together
with an offer for participation.  The JTC 1 Chairman is authorized to
initiate additional Study Groups if the same requirements as above are met.
