The goal of this meeting is to produce a recommended basic list of enhancement terms for use in electronic news photo archives. Discussions will be based on a 1995 revision of the original News Division draft and other documents, copies of which will be available.

This subject has been good for very lively discussions in the past, and there's no reason to think this will be any different.

Since this session was scheduled late, it will be held in the News Division suite, Hyatt Regency.
