Dr. Minto was asked by the organising committee of WorldSIVA to chair a meeting of the Open TCI Initiative from 8AM-9AM a the ‘Meet the Expert Session’ at the Third World Congress of TIVA/TCI in Singapore.
The lecture hall was full, with many people attending. At the commencement of the meeting, a show of hands was asked for to indicate how many of the people at the meeting were in fact members of the Open TCI Initiative with completed disclosure statements. The only members present, as indicated by this show of hands, were: Charles Minto, Thomas Schnider and Iain Glen.
Rather than hold a formal meeting, Dr. Minto decided to gave a 15 minute presentation about the Open TCI Initiative. This was followed by a 40 minute ‘Question and Answer’ session.
