New Ideas for IETF-93

This is a good time to submit more new proposals for the IETF! Our meeting in Prague is coming up in July, and the proposals for new working groups (“Birds-of-Feather or BoF sessions”) are due this Friday.

Please contact your Area Director to ask for help and read RFC 5434 for more information on how to create new working groups at the IETF. And remember that BoFs need not always be run to form a working group. They can also be setup to discuss a problem or an idea. In other words, if you believe discussion of an issue within Internet technology would be useful, please propose a session.

And of course, new working groups are usually for bigger and fundamentally new proposals, while much of the ongoing work goes on in the existing working groups. If you have suggestions around any of the protocols that we are currently working on, let the working group know by posting on their mailing list.

Looking forward to seeing you all in Prague!

Jari Arkko, IETF Chair
