  • 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 108 Preview

    • Alissa CooperIETF Chair

    23 Jul 2020

    The 108th IETF meeting will be held online July 27-31 from 11:00 to 16:00 UTC each day.

    The upcoming IETF 108 Online meeting will be unlike any other. Next week, nearly 1000 participants will gather online for a densely packed week featuring over 100 working sessions. Although we will miss seeing each other in person, we’ll take the opportunity to use the Internet to its fullest to progress the work of the IETF.

    Here is a brief list of some of the special events and happenings not to be missed:

    Three Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions are scheduled for the incubation of new work: data models for “Internet of Things” devices (ASDF), updates to core email standards (EMAILCORE), and local transport optimizations between tunnel endpoints (LOOPS).

    Five working groups will be meeting for the very first time, focusing on a variety of topics including anonymously redeemable token creation (privacypass), SIP trunking (ASAP), extending beyond OAuth 2.0 web authorization (GNAP), and using QUIC as a tunneling mechanism (MASQUE), as well as pandemic-era IETF meeting planning (SHMOO).

    The Applied Networking Research Workshop (ANRW) is taking place concurrently with the IETF meeting and will showcase research concerning DNS and BGP, protocol testing and validation, transport protocols and traffic engineering, and monitoring and logging. Separate registration is required (which is free for IETF meeting attendees).

    The Applied Networking Research Prize (ANRP) winners will be presenting their work at the Internet Research Task Force (IRTF) open meeting on July 28 at 11:00 UTC.

    The Internet Architecture Board (IAB) will host two sessions: an IAB open meeting and an RFC Editor Future Development program meeting. 

    The IETF Hackathon is taking place this week, July 20-24, with teams collaborating on projects virtually. The Hackathon wrap-up session with team presentations will take place on July 24 from 14:00 to 16:00 UTC.

    Also this week there will be a Technology Deep Dive session delving into the details of the DNS on July 23 from 18:00 to 19:30 UTC. Attendance at the deep dive does not require IETF meeting registration.

    And here are some handy links to help participants make the most of their online IETF meeting experience:

    • Meeting registration (with fee waivers available)
    • Participant guide with instructions for using our conferencing platform, Meetecho
    • Join the virtual hallway using the tool (link will be available on the meeting page)
    • Get technical assistance if you need it

    We won’t have cookies or hotel air conditioning on at full blast, but we’ll certainly have vigorous technical discussions. Thanks to Ericsson as the host, ICANN as sponsor of the hackathon, and all the other IETF 108 sponsors for the support they provide that makes the continued work of the IETF possible. See you on Meetecho!
