The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) Live!

IETF 95 takes place 3-8 April 2016 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Please see the IETF 95 Meeting page for more information.

Remote Participation

If you are unable to attend an IETF meeting in person, you can participate remotely by listening to audio streams and participating in Jabber chat rooms. Some sessions also make use of either the WebEx or MeetEcho conferencing services. For more information, please visit:

At IETF 95, all sessions are available over Meetecho. Please see the Meetecho page for information about how to join the sessions. All Meetecho sessions are recorded and so archives can be viewed later.

Additionally, the following sessions will be streamed live on the IETF YouTube channel:

All times are in Argentina Standard Time (ART) which is UTC-3.

These sessions will be recorded for later viewing. Please see the links and embedded video streams below.

NOTE FOR VIEWERS IN GERMANY - In previous years Google has restricted access to YouTube live streams in Germany due to an ongoing legal dispute. However, that restriction has been removed from YouTube's documentation page and so we are unsure if viewers in Germany will be able to watch the streams. (Others are apparently confused by this, too.) In case YouTube live streams do not work at IETF 95, we have arranged to have the events also streamed through an Internet Society channel which should be available in Germany.

Once the event is over, viewers in Germany (and everywhere) will be able to watch the recorded YouTube sessions.
