Room: Acacia 1

This tutorial will provide an introduction for newcomers to the RFC series as well as a refresher for experienced RFC authors. It will review the most important editorial policies and formatting rules for RFCs. It will also provide a set of helpful hints to authors about content and format; following these hints will often improve the timeliness of RFC publication and the quality of the resulting documents. It will include a brief overview of the procedures for review and approval of RFCs (for both IETF submissions and RFC Editor submissions), describe the various states of the publication process, and provide an opportunity to ask questions of RFC Editor staff.
