4. Approval of the Agenda
The Agenda was approved.
5. TC working programme and schedule
Liisa Halonen reminded of the TC terms of reference, these are: ‘ To define mesopic visual performance and related terms. To investigate performance based photometry in the luminance region below approximately 10 cd/m 2 . To propose a model for the basis of performance based mesopic photometry.'
Liisa Halonen reviewed the outcomes of the previous TC1-58 meetings. In the 1 st meeting (Tokyo June 10, 2004) the new terms of reference were agreed. In the 2 nd meeting (León May 17, 2005) the TC working programme (tasks and schedule) was defined. In the 3 rd meeting (Ottawa May 18, 2006) the TC work (outcomes of expert surveys, model comparisons) was introduced and decision was made on generation of further data for model comparisons and analysis. In the 4 th meeting (Beijing July 9, 2007) analysis of MOVE-, X- and Y-models based on three new independent data-sets were presented, the contents of the TC report were agreed and the required future actions needed to accomplish the TC work were discussed.
After the Beijing meeting the first draft of the TC report (Chapters 3 and 4) was sent to members for their comments on October 3, 2007 and comments were asked by October 19, 2007. The second draft of the TC report (Chapters 5 and 6) were sent to members on November 5, 2007. The aim of the 5 th meeting is to agree on the Chapters 3 and 4 of the report, to agree on deadline for further data-sets to be used in model comparison and to agree on the criteria to be used in proposing the mesopic model. After the 5 th meeting the TC report will again be circulated to members for their comments. The aim is to have the 6 th and final meeting of the TC in June 2008 along the Div 1 meeting (possibly in Stockholm Sweden ). The aim of the final meeting is to agree on the TC report to be rendered to Div 1.
The chairman presented the TC working programme which is divided into three main tasks according to the terms of reference. In the working programme generation of new data, analysis of new data and modeling of mesopic data are still in progress. After these are completed the TC can propose a model for the basis of performance based mesopic photometry. The aim is to finalise the TC work within four years from its start, this is by June 2008.
It was agreed that the deadline for receiving any new data sets for model comparisons is January 31, 2008. It was also agreed that the deadline for modeling and model analysis to be carried out within the TC is February 28, 2008.
6. Presentation of recent mesopic research work
6. TC report
Marjukka Eloholma presented the draft of the TC report. The general layout (sub-Chapters and their main contents) of Chapters 3 and 4 were agreed. Comments to the Chapters 3 and 4 were jointly collected in the meeting and notes on these were written below each sub-Chapter and presented on the video-screen. The following was discussed and agreed:
Concerning the Chapters 5 and 6 the following was discussed and agreed:
