This message is part of a series to bring you information about the IETF that will help you as a new participant.

During the IETF meeting week, there are many events that are structured specifically for new participants and events that are for everyone.  We encourage you to participate in as many of these as you can.

-Hackathon (Saturday - Sunday)
Onsite and Remote
The IETF hackathon is used to encourage developers and subject matter experts to discuss, collaborate, and develop utilities, ideas, sample code, and solutions that show practical implementations of IETF standards. Registration required. 
See the following for more information:

-New Participants’ Overview (Sunday)
Onsite and Remote
This session is a review of the New Participants’ Overview Presentation and provides new participants with information on how the IETF works, what to expect at a meeting and much more. This session will be available via Meetecho and will be linked from the agenda.

-Quick Connections (Sunday)
New Participants’ Quick Connections is a simple and effective way for
you to be introduced to a variety of experienced IETF attendees — often
working group chairs — who can help you get more involved in your
areas of interest.  To RSVP, please go to your attendee dashboard by using your unique confirmation number (https://registration.ietf.org/116/attendee-dashboard/YOURREGISTRATION#/).  A direct link to your dashboard is also available in your confirmation email.

-Welcome Reception (Sunday)
This is an informal reception.  It’s a chance to meet other attendees, make some connections, and chat about the upcoming week.  This year there will be a number of demonstrations from WIDE members (https://ietf116.jp/demos/).  Food and beverages will be provided.

-Hot RFC (Sunday)
Onsite and Remote
This session is for lightning talks about new ideas, proposals, and research topics. This session will be available via Meetecho and will be linked from the agenda.

-Systers Networking event (Monday)
This is an opportunity to meet and mingle with other Systers to share advice and collaborate.

-New Participant Dinner (Monday) 
This is an informal dinner for new participants to connect.  There is a $15.00 entrance fee as this is not an IETF funded event.  This dinner is organized by the IETF secretariat.
Sign-ups for the dinner will be available soon.  

-Plenary (Wednesday)

The plenary session is an opportunity for the IETF leadership to share updates on administrative and operational topics with the community.  There is an open microphone portion of the session where community participants can ask questions.
