Dear First-Time Attendees:

We are pleased that you are attending your first IETF meeting, and we look forward to meeting all of you soon in Yokohama, Japan!

As you prepare to attend IETF 94, please take a few minutes to watch the excellent “Top 10 Things to Know Before Your First IETF Meeting” video embedded here: https://ietf.org/newcomers.html.  We also strongly encourage you to review The Tao of the IETF, which is available online at https://www.ietf.org/tao.html. 

Additional IETF 94 resources for newcomers are available here: https://www.ietf.org/meeting/94/94-newcomers.html. We hope that you will be able to attend the Newcomers orientation from 1300-1450 on Sunday, November 1 in Room 303 of the Pacifico Yokohama.  If you are unable to attend, it was recorded at a previous IETF meeting and you can view it at your leisure at: https://www.ietf.org/edu/process-oriented-tutorials.html#newcomers.

To help you get started, you are invited a Meet-and-Greet with the Working Group Chairs from 1600-1700 on Sunday, November 1st.  Only first-time attendees and WG Chairs, Mentors, IESG members, and IAB members are invited to this special reception, which will take place in the InterContinental Bayview Room of the InterContinental Yokohama Grand Hotel. Beer, wine, soda, and light appetizers will be provided. This will be an informal gathering; there will be no speeches or presentations.  The sole purpose is to give you some time to mingle with WG chairs, providing a forum for you to get answers to any questions you may have about the IETF.  If you are hoping to speak with a particular WG Chair, you may want to check out our WG Chair Directory, where you can find photos of many of them: https://www.ietf.org/wg/chair-photos.html. The Meet-and-Greet will end promptly at 1700.  At that time, you are encouraged to attend the official IETF 94 Welcome Reception.

On Monday there is an informal (and not subsidized) Newcomers Dinner at a nearby local restaurant, exact location TBD. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Maddy Conner at mconner@amsl.com no later than 1600 on Monday. 

Safe Travels,
