Agenda item #4: ICCV88 (A. Rosenfeld): A large number of reviewers are used (more than the committee) for 311 papers, 197 US, 23 CDN, etc. (from 20 countires). The pattern is similar to ICCV87.

CAIA-89 may have workshops on manufacturing and intelligent robotics. This led to a discussion of the lack of "AI" in PAMI, AI related conferences, name changes, control of conferences, and possible TAB actions regarding the TCs. Agenda item #8: PAMI Newsletter (A. Rosenfeld): It took 3 years to get the agreement that the newsletter would go to all PAMI subscribers, but the most recent newsletter did not. Agenda item #9: J. Aggarwal discussed the need for several officers. Motion by B. Haralick for an Awards committee to consider IEEE Fellows nominations and other awards. Passed. The issue of a treasurer was discussed in light of the possibility to retain more conference income, but decisions were postponed until the By-laws discussion. Agenda item #10: Transactions on PAMI (S. Tanimoto): At the Publications Board meeting (next week) will propose that PAMI go to 12 issues and 1300+ pages per year (from 6 and about 850). The backlog is 85 papers, with 1/3 of this past year taken by industrial vision special issues causing some of the backlog. There was a discussion of the net surplus from the transactions and the need for reviewers to do their reviews. Motion by A. Rosenfeld (W. Martin second) to consider Item #13 next. Passed: Yes:22, No:0, Abstain:6. Agenda item #13: Conference guidelines (R. Haralick): Discussion of the proposal to have guidelines for major conferences, including the nature, need, and scope of the guidelines, the layers of management for conferences, whether the TC should dictate conference format, and how to convey the intent of the TC to the program committee.

Passed: Yes:22, No:4, Abstain:3. Agenda item #11: ICCV (J. Aggarwal): Discussion of the need to hold such a meeting (concentrating on the intended difference between ICCV and CVPR), possible locations possible dates, co-chairs, and possible program committee members.
