  • Banishing the bane of bufferbloat

    Bufferbloat affects everyone who uses the Internet, resulting in frustratingly slow web browsing, laggy video calls, and overall poor quality of experience for Internet users and there's a lot of work underway in the IETF to address it.

    • Reducing IETF Meeting Scheduling Conflicts

      With many IETF participants active across a number of active working groups and limited time slots in an IETF meeting week, we aim to arrange sessions in the agenda to minimize conflicts that prevent participants from joining sessions that are of interest to them. In each post-meeting survey we ask meeting participants to comment on the scheduling conflicts they experienced in the meeting agenda and we then use this information to improve the meeting agenda.

    • Messaging Layer Security: Secure and Usable End-to-End Encryption

      The IETF has approved publication of Messaging Layer Security (MLS), a new standard for end-to-end security that will make it easy for apps to provide the highest level of security to their users. End-to-end encryption is an increasingly important security feature in Internet applications. It keeps users’ information safe even if the cloud service they’re using has been breached.

    IETF 113 Registration Open

    • Jay DaleyIETF Executive Director

    27 Jan 2022

    I am pleased to announce that registration is now open for IETF 113 and the preceding IETF Hackathon.

    As previously announced, IETF 113 will be a 7-day hybrid meeting on 19-25 March with an agenda structure similar to that of an online meeting, but with important changes made to comply with local requirements and also to accommodate remote participants. Agenda details for the IETF 113 meeting will be published on 18 February. The IETF Hackathon will be held 19-20 March.

    Registration can be accessed directly or via the IETF 113 meeting webpage.

    As this is our first hybrid meeting, you may wish to consult our detailed FAQ that aims to answer the main questions about travel, registrations, hotel bookings and the mechanics of onsite participation. You can access IETF 113 registration directly

    The IETF 113 meeting venue is the Hilton Vienna Park. As explained in the FAQ, you will need to register before you can reserve a guest room at the venue. A link to reserve a guest room will be sent to you after you register. Booking a different hotel does not require you to register first.

    In a change from previous meetings, all participants, both onsite and remote, will need to use our remote participation service, Meetecho, in order to participate in IETF 113. For onsite participants, there will be a cut down version of the Meetecho app that provides contactless/paperless attendance recording (“blue sheets”), integrated onsite/remote queue management, chat integration and slide sharing features.

    All IETF 113 participants will need an IETF Datatracker account in order to authenticate with Meetecho. You can create a Datatracker account before registration or as part of the registration process.

    Please note that VAT will be applied to all onsite registrations. 

    Remote participation fee waivers

    We understand that not everyone can afford the IETF 113 remote registration fee for a variety of reasons and we do not want any of these to be a barrier to participation. For that reason, we make an unlimited number of fee waivers available to remote participants and operate on a trust basis, making no checks on eligibility. If you are planning to participate remotely and cannot afford the registration fee then please take the fee waiver option.

    Cancellation and changing registration

    If you register for onsite participation and wish to change to an online registration then you can cancel with a full refund and re-register. If you wish to cancel your registration for any other reason then we will provide a full refund. Please request any cancellations and refunds by contacting the Secretariat at before the cutoff time of UTC 23:59 2022-03-14.

    Meeting t-shirts

    Thanks to the generosity of the IETF 113 meeting host, Huawei, all registered participants, both onsite and remote, have the option to receive a free t-shirt with free delivery or collection onsite. Limited quantities are available on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Full details are available on the IETF 113 webpage.
