> We’re planning to give a presentation in 6lowpan area in next IETF conference but couldn’t find our schedule or time slot. How to apply for it? Can anyone give some suggestion?

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
