Welcome to the IETF
Towards a net zero IETF
A new project is looking at how to measure and potentially offset the carbon emissions of IETF meetings to reach the level of a net zero emitter.
IETF 114 starts Saturday 23 July and runs through Friday afternoon, 29 July.Philadelphia

Introducing a new project to measure and potentially offset IETF carbon emissions so that the IETF could potentially reach the level of a net zero emitter.6 May 2022
The results from our IETF 113 post-meeting survey are now available on a web-based interactive dashboard. This commentary highlights where changes we have made based on feedback have been a success, and areas we still need to work on.2 May 2022

Understanding the Internet Engineering Task Force
Working Groups are the primary mechanism for development of IETF specifications and guidelines. Working Groups are typically created to address a specific problem or to produce one or more specific deliverables (a guideline, standards specification, etc.).
Request for Comments (RFCs)
The IETF publishes RFCs authored by network operators, engineers, and computer scientists to document methods, behaviors, research, or innovations applicable to the Internet.
This document defines the core of the QUIC transport protocol. QUIC provides applications with flow-controlled streams for structured communication, low-latency connection establishment, and network…
Topics of interest
The IETF is working on standards for automated network management which, as the name implies, aims to improve and make more efficient management of networks as they continue to increase in size and complexity.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the network of physical objects or "things" embedded with electronics, software, sensors, actuators, and connectivity to enable objects to exchange data with the manufacturer, operator, and/or other connected devices.
The development of new transport technologies in the IETF provides capabilities that improve the ability of Internet applications to send data over the Internet.
