The IETF meeting rooms and registration desk are ready for the meetings to start. A lot of activity is already going on on Saturday this time, but actual registration opens on Sunday at 1000 in the Congress Hall Foyer on the Lower Lobby level.
The IETF network is up and seems to be working fine in the public areas and in the hotel rooms at the Hilton. The network is built to a large extent with the help of volunteers. Thank you everyone who has worked on this!
Both wired and wireless network should be working in the rooms. In my room the wired does not seem to work, however. This could be the wiring in my room. If you encounter issues with the IETF network, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The IETF Hackathon room was ready on Friday, complete with suitable refreshments for the hacking. We will be quite tight, however, with over 100 people registered.
There are also several other events ongoing around the IETF. The ETSI interop event is working on 6TISCH and RPL, for instance, next door to the Hackathon room. The CrypTech team is working on their open-source, trusted cryptographic hardware.
The RITE project is also meeting, with the goal of “saying NO to latency”. This sounds very interesting!
Per a requirement from the IAOC, the hotel elevators have been upgraded:
Finally, make sure you select the right room when you come to the meeting. Our meeting is the one with the better odds of success 🙂
