Past Meetings

Based on the positive response at the last IETF meeting (in Maastricht) we decided to hold another OAuth tutorial, namely on *Wednesday, starting at 19:30 (after the IETF Operations and Administration Plenary) till about 21:00. (Note: I had to switch the day because of the social event!)
