ITU-T Q.1/16 Rapporteur's Meeting Announcement

Fri Jun 30 04:33:10 EDT 2006

Dear all,

Unfortunetly I will not be able to come in the rapporteur meeting this time. I asked Mrs Mingjun Sun whether she could chair it or not and she answered that it was not sure. As a consequence I think the only solution is to cancel it. Please accept my apologies, even if i am not responsible for this hitch ...
