Launch of the IETF Community Survey 2023

22 Dec 2023

The 2023 IETF Community Survey is live and we want to hear from you! Please respond by 22 January 2024.

The IETF Community survey is our major annual survey of the whole of the IETF community and is used to inform the actions of IETF leadership throughout the year. Our 2022 survey had over 2000 responses and the results were documented in a dashboard.

We are now launching our 2023 IETF Community Survey and we would be very grateful if you could spare six minutes to provide your feedback on the IETF and your experiences even if you don’t consider yourself an IETF participant:

Please note that Javascript is required for this survey, and that we run this survey in anonymous mode and do not collect data such as IP addresses. It will take about six minutes to complete the survey.

An invitation to participate in this survey will be sent directly to approximately 49,000 email addresses extracted from those lists on Friday 22 December from my address <>. These email addresses are all those subscribed to an IETF mailing list except those only subscribed to lists that are explicitly not intended for IETF participants.

If you unsubscribed from previous surveys then you will not receive the email. If you want to unsubscribe now from this and all future community surveys then you can do so by emailing and responding to the confirmation email. If you have a more complex unsubscription request then please send me the list of addresses to unsubscribe. Your unsubscription will be recorded for future community surveys. Apologies in advance if you get the invitation more than once.

We have chosen this approach of a direct email over two alternatives: a) relying on an announcement, because ietf-announce only has ~3000 subscribers and the community is over ten times that size; or b) posting the survey to every IETF mailing lists, because that would be too disruptive to the work of the IETF.

This survey will close on Monday 22 January 2024. Thanks in advance for your time!
