This is the second call for WG2 meeting # 37 from 13 16 September 1999 in Copenhagen, Denmark. The host organization is the Danish Standards organization (DS). The logistics for hotels and meeting site are posted to the SC2/WG2 website. WG2 will be meeting starting at 9:00 am Monday, 13 September 1999 and conclude on Thursday, latest by noon, on 16 September 1999. Please note that SC2/WG3 will be meeting on 16 and 17 September 1999, starting immediately after the closure on the SC2/WG2 meeting late morning on Thursday, 16 September.


This second call for WG2 meeting # 37 includes a tentative agenda. It will be broadcast by email and posted to the SC2/WG2 website at URL: The documents that were distributed at the last WG2 meeting were mailed in early June 1999 to those who did not attend meeting #36 in Fukuoka, Japan. The last SC2/WG2 mailing, in late June 1999, included documents that are on this agenda. Some of the new documents since then have been posted to the website and you need to download, review and bring to the meeting. I will bring one hard copy with me for copying and distribution in Copenhagen.


The objective of this meeting is to continue the WG2 program of work, with special focus on the next edition of 10646-1 and to review the working draft of 10646-2 (document N 2012R).
