Meeting Location Assessment

The list of cities that have been assessed for suitability as a location for an IETF meeting or are still being assessed, along with results of surveys and feedback requests.

A key step in the IETF Meeting Venue Identification and Selection Process is to assess nominated cities to see if they are suitable to hold an IETF meeting. The assessment process includes requesting and considering community feedback. The list of cities that have been assessed and the results of that assessment are shown below. Assessment can take some years and so this table is only occasionally updated.

Community Feedback

Community feedback is requested on an irregular basis by an email to the IETF-Announce mailing list (subscribe) .  We publish a read-only version of the Trello board where the community feedback from that list is collated and assessed. We also publish a public archive of the feedback emails received.

Surveys of Community Preference

We conduct occasional surveys to understand community preferences for meeting locations.
