Hi Carsten,

Thank you for your info. We do have a draft which is "draft-wang-6lowpan-scheduling-requirements-00". We're hoping to bring interest in this area through the presentation in the coming conference. We're planning to submit the second version soon. In this case, is that possible to make a slot?

Hi Chao,

the 6LoWPAN WG is not meeting in Taipei.
There also is, in general, no plan to take on new work within this particular WG.

This, of course, does not mean that there won't be additional work in this space - quite to the contrary.  Just not likely in the existing organizational context of this WG.

As you know, the right way to bring an idea to the IETF is to write an Internet-Draft.
(Even if there were a 6LoWPAN slot in Taipei, the chairs would generally require an Internet-Draft for a meeting slot.)  Once we have that, we may be able to find a meeting of a different WG that might provide a way to discuss the work.  Or we might be able to progress it outside of face-to-face meetings, as we are doing with the Bluetooth-Low-Energy (BT-LE) work right now.

So, in any case, my recommendation is to write a draft, and if that creates interest within the purview of the 6LoWPAN WG, we will find a way forward.

Grüße, Carsten
