Preparing for IETF 113

This page provides details of the resources available to prepare for the first-ever hybrid IETF meeting.

It is strongly recommended to review this information even if you have participated in a past IETF meeting using Meetecho.

General notes

For IETF hybrid meetings, all onsite and remote session chairs and participants will need to sign into each session in which they participate using a Web browser.

As with past fully-online IETF meetings, an IETF Datatracker login and Meetecho will be used (by chairs and participants) to generate session blue sheets (attendance lists) and to manage a unified queue for all participants, both remote and in-person. A special version of Meetecho designed to work on mobile devices will be available for in-person participants.

Information for participants

Remote IETF 113 participants will use the Web-based Meetecho client as with past fully-online meetings. Participants at the meeting venue in Vienna are able to use a streamlined mobile-friendly version of Meetecho during sessions. A Meetecho guide for participants updated for IETF 113 is now available. It includes links to:

Information for session chairs

All session chairs whether onsite or remote will use the full version of Meetecho. A Meetecho guide for session chairs updated for IETF 113 is now available. It includes links to:

Online demos and training

These sessions covered the details of using Meetecho to chair sessions both in-person and online.

While the sessions were tailored to session chairs, they covered issues that may be of interest to any IETF 113 participant.

A recording of one session is available on the IETF YouTube channel.

Self-schedule test sessions

As with past fully-online meetings, session chairs will be able to schedule sessions on-demand to test set ups and arrange run throughs with presenters. This feature will be available beginning 11 March 2022 to working group and research group chairs using the Meetecho platform as updated for IETF 113.

Onsite testing

During 19-20 March 2022 an example session room in Park Suite 9 on the Mezzanine level of the venue hotel will be available for onsite session chairs and participants to test their setups ahead of meeting sessions. Sessions chairs wishing to test in-person should reserve a time.
