About Manycouches
English (USA)

Remote attendance at IETF meetings is increasing. Over time one might expect that this trend might continue and even accelerate to the point where eventually one or more of the traditional IETF meetings could be replaced or augmented by a mega-virtual meeting with all or almost all participants working from 'home.'

The manycouches list is a design team list to identify issues that would arise should an IETF meeting ever be held with O(1000) 'remote' participants.

The goal for now is only to identify issues that would need to be addressed and possible experiments that could be performed to explore those issues. Further action on such large scale remote participation would require significant community discussion before implementation or deployment.
