                Will and
       have identical content?
                <PockeyLam1>: pingooo: yes, same content, maybe even
                point to the same webpage

4) Share information about sponsorship

              * Contacted: 
                      * CT: Nokia, Samsung, KKBOX, Microsoft, Yahoo!

              * GAS's sponsorship levels and price tags will be aligned
                with COSCUP's CfS. 
      * Issues: 
              * profits shared as 50/50? (Refer to agenda item#6.) 

5) Share information about speakers 

Information Sharing: 

      * (Same break time frames)
        During the two-day joint-conference, there will be 2 tea breaks
        and one lunch time each day. We need to keep these three time
        frames the same between GAS and COSCUP. Base on the same three
        break time frames, we can have different program time slots for
        GAS or COSCUP. (For example, if we have a 10:00-10:30 tea break,
        both GAS and COSCUP have the same break time frame. Then GAS can
        have a 10:30-11:00 & 11:00-11:30 sessions, and COSCUP has a
        10:30-11:30 session.) 
      * (Opening & Closing)
        We plan to have joint-opening at 09:10-09:20 on Day1, 10-min
        duration, both GASC/CT team members can have a short speech.
        Closing will be at 17:00-17:30 on Day2. We can discuss if we
        have closing together or separately. (Based on the history, we
        have known that CT's closing may be very . and would like to
        share the joy with GAS:) 
      * (Program committee schedule)
        1. COSCUP CfP is online and sending.
        2. 6/18: deadline of CfP
        3. 7/4: announce joint-conference agenda/program 
      * (Conference room arrangement)
        There are 4 different size conference rooms. We propose to
        assign sessions to rooms based on popularity of sessions,
        determined by the number of registrants that pick a session
        during registration. Basically, we may not have dedicated two
        rooms for GAS and the other two for COSCUP. We can arrange
        meeting room based on popularity of sessions each half-day.
        (Event staff team will help to change/update doorplates.) 

Program Open Discussion Topics: 

      * plenary talks 
              * In the joint-conference proposal, it mentioned about
                "Plenary talks that span 2 tracks". It's also possible
                to "span 4 tracks" which may be helpful for sponsorship
                or marketing. Let's keep it as a open-mind discussion
                topic. If any of us (GASC or CT) may need one
                span-4-tracks speech, the program committee of both side
                can discuss the practicability. :) 
              * 3 plenary talks and not more than 4 plenary talks. (only
                for diamond sponsor) 
              * scheduled 45 minutes for each plenary talk (normal talk
                is 30 minutes, BTW) 

6) Discuss about budgeting 

      * COSCUP budget: 
              * [TODO] we can mark which items are optional 
      * <yippi>: perhaps a weighted formula would work best. For
        example. Perhaps 50% of the profits are split 50/50 and 50% of
        the profits are divided by which team got the sponsorship money.
        <yippi>: or perhaps sponsorship money from organizations which
        are known to donate to both events are split 50/50, and
        sponsorship money from events that are not typical sponsors of
        both events go to the organization that got the sponsor 
              * The formula proposal would be discussed offline by email

7) Answer any question from COSCUP :) or anything COSCUP may want
to discuss(Booth team) Need GAS provide information in the future (Can
be discussed offline.) 

      * Will be there posters/DM/exhibits of GAS? (booth team needs to
        arrange the booth locations and layout.) 
      * Need any power supply at GAS booth? 
      * Need any power supply at GAS sponsors' booth?
