  • 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.

    Welcome to IETF-87!

    • Jari ArkkoIETF Chair

    12 Jul 2013

    In two weeks, we will have the IETF-87 meeting in Berlin! The previous time IETF was in Germany was in August 1997 in Munich – that was too long ago and it is a pleasure to be back!


    I’m looking forward to collaborating with many talented and enthusiastic people throughout the meeting week.  And I’m very happy that according to registration statistics we will have a large number of first time attendees with us this time – I wish you all warmly welcome to the IETF!

    DENIC is the platinum sponsor for IETF 87. Deutsche TelekomEURidDynECO, and ADVA Optical Networking are also sponsoring IETF 87.   DENIC has also organized a social event at the German Museum of Technology (Deutsches Technikmuseum). I am looking forward to it.  Deutsche Telekom is sponsoring the network connectivity.  Many thanks to our sponsors; we could not have a quality meeting without your strong support.

    Our fourth Bits-N-Bites event will take place on Thursday evening.  It includes exhibitor tables, free food, and free drink.  Attendance optional, but our previous visitors seemed to have fun! The Bits-N-Bites sponsors are A10 NetworksDynComcastNominumIPSO AllianceHuaweiICANNInternet Society and others are signing up.  Thanks for making this event possible!

    The agenda for the meeting can be found from the meeting page. I am particularly excited about the many new work proposals we have this time. The week includes 12 Birds of a Feather (BoF) meetings:

    I look forward to your participation this week, and seeing you also at IETF 88 in Vancouver, BC, Canada on November 3rd to 8th, 2013.
