These instructions are for the Session Request Tool provided on the IETF Datatracker.
The Session Request Tool may be used by IETF working group chairs, working group secretaries, IRTF research group chairs, IAB Group Chairs, Area Directors, IETF Secretariat members, Team Chairs, and the IRTF Chair to request sessions at upcoming IETF Meetings.
Use the same login information as for the IETF Meeting Materials Management tool.
This interface allows you to request a new session, or make changes to or cancel a previously requested session.
Acronyms of the working groups that you currently chair are listed in this section. Click on an acronym to initiate a request for a new session at the upcoming IETF meeting.
