So then we could schedule the small FSG/OP project meeting on 
Tuesday/Wednesday 24-25 April in Piscataway, NJ and the next Printing 
Summit coupled with the September PWG meeting in Montreal.

Is Piscataway, NJ the IEEE office?

<ira> Yes </ira>

Whose facility will be used for the September PWG meeting in Montreal?

<ira> No one's facility - just a possible city in the fall.
Montreal location and September (versus October) date are
very tentative and may change in further PWG planning. </ira>

Is September/October the beginning of the fiscal year for some countries?

<ira> Yes, for some US businesses it is. </ira>
