Another aspect that needs some thoughts is cost. 

In person participation even if you live in an Airbnb, a 2* hotel or with friends and not at the 5* IETF hotels (even at reduced rates) is a major monetary investment. If we want go get more people involved this has to be in the equation. I am IRTF of course but to get more academic participation the economics are part of it.

But there is more: participants without corporate accounts (see costs above), with family or teaching obligations or with other issues have always participated remotely. So we can just extend it?

And while I really want to start seeing you guys again we need to be realistic.
