!!!  VFS MEETING NOTICE -- SEPTEMBER 12, 1994  !!!

I would like to invite anyone interested in data interchange and 
storage on removable media to attend an open industry-wide 
meeting on future "Volume and File Structure" (VFS) standardization 
efforts.

We are exploring the interest level and need for development of 
additional national and international VFS standards and the 
feasibility of forming an ANSI Accredited Technical Committee (TC) 
for Volume and File Structure.

The proposed VFS TC would combine the optical media responsibility 
of Task Group X3B11.1 and the magnetic media responsibility of the 
X3B5 VFS Ad hoc (and possibly the CD-ROM responsibility currently 
under NISO).  This VFS TC would also have US TAG responsibility for 
ISO/IEC JTC 1 SC15.

The meeting will address both the requirements for standards and 
the expected participation needed for formation of a new Technical 
Committee.

The meeting will be held in Tacoma, WA on September 12, 1994 in 
the Executive Board Room of the Sheraton Tacoma from 1:00 p.m. to 
6:00 p.m.
