Joint Data and Information Management Panel (JDIMP), third
Kyo, Japan, July 15-18, 1997
thanked the welcoming speakers for their gracious remarks
and for their generous support of the meeting. He added his
wish to that of earlier speakers for a productive meeting,
and invited the participants to introduce themselves. The
Chairman briefly noted that since its last session, the panel
has acquired the sponsorship of the GOOS and the GTOS. Consequently,
its terms of reference are in need of review and possible
modification. He proposed that the panel consider developing
specific proposals to modify them at an appropriate place
in the agenda. In a similar fashion, he noted that the scope
of the panel was also an important subject for consideration.
The Chairman suggested that the prior work and output of the
panel since it was established on behalf of GCOS would provide
a context in which the participants could review the future
scope of work. He suggested these two issues be revisited
after the series of updates and reports were provided.
