  • Proposed response to meeting venue consultations and the complex issues raised

    The IETF Administration LLC recently sought feedback from the community on the possibility of holding an IETF Meeting in the cities of Beijing, Istanbul, Kuala Lumpur and Shenzhen, with received feedback including views that were well expressed and well argued but strongly conflicting. The IETF LLC has considered this feedback in-depth and now seeks community feedback on its proposed response.

    IETF 101 BoF Deadline

    • Alissa CooperIETF Chair

    22 Jan 2018

    The deadline to submit Birds of a Feather (BoF) proposals for IETF 101 is rapidly approaching: Friday, February 2 at 23:59 UTC.

    Hopefully those who have been working on ideas that seem like they need to extend an existing working group’s charter, need a new working group altogether, or need some dedicated face-to-face discussion in the community have already been talking to your Area Directors about these proposals. If not, please do so right away! And please take a look at the recommendations in RFC 5434  about how to have a successful BoF.

    Based on community discussion the IESG kicked off last fall, we have updated the BoF wiki to request some additional information from BoF proponents. In addition to the information we require about every BoF proposal, proponents are also encouraged to do the following in their BoF wiki entries:

    • List any protocols or practices that already exist in the space in which the new work is being proposed.
    • List any modifications to existing protocols or practices that will be required by the new work.
    • List any entirely new protocols or practices that will be required by the new work.
    • List any open source projects implementing the new work.

    This information will allow the IESG, with the IAB’s assistance, to make more informed decisions more quickly about BoF proposals.

    See the IETF 101 webpage for additional details about the meeting, and links to registration and more information about the preceding IETF Hackathon.
