We are looking forward to seeing you soon in Chicago for IETF 98!

You are receiving this email because you indicated during registration that you’ve attended fewer than five IETF meetings.  As a relative newcomer (and perhaps even first-time attendee) we want to make sure that you are aware of the various resources we’ve developed to get you up to speed. 

Note that we are extending all our newcomer activities to cover those who have attended fewer than five IETFs to give you a better chance to take advantage of these various activities to learn more about the IETF.

If you’ve not done so yet, please take a few minutes to watch the excellent “Top 10 Things to Know Before Your First IETF Meeting” video embedded on this page, under Attending a Meeting: 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 98 resources for newcomers are available here: https://ietf.org/meeting/98/98-newcomers.html. Below is a highlight of the newcomer-specific events during the week:

** Sunday, March 26 **
- Newcomers Orientation from 1230-1330 in Zurich A of the Swissotel. If you are unable to attend on Sunday, there is an online Newcomers Orientation embedded at the top of https://ietf.org/newcomers.html.

- Speed Mentoring from in 13:45-14:45 in the Lucerne Ballroom. NOTE: Pre-registration is required and space is extremely limited. We will send a separate email with a link to register for Speed Mentoring, so look for that soon. Speed mentoring is a simple and effective way for you to be introduced to a variety of experienced IETF attendees — often working group (WG) chairs — who can help you get more involved in your areas of interest. 

-  Meet-and-Greet with WG chairs and other IETF leaders from 16:00-17:00 in the Alpine Ballroomr.  Only newcomers and IETF leadership are invited and this is an informal gathering; there will be no speeches or presentations. Beer, wine, soda, and light appetizers will be provided. This special reception provides a valuable opportunity to mingle with WG chairs, mentors and other leaders before the meeting gets started.  If you are hoping to speak with a particular WG chair, you may want to check out our photo directory: https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/photos/. The Meet-and-Greet will end promptly at 1700.  At that time, you are encouraged to attend the official IETF 98 Welcome Reception in the Lucerne Ballroom. 

** Monday, March 27**
- Informal Newcomer’s Pizza Dinner at 18:45 in Matterhorn Room of the Swissotel. Cost is $20 USD. If you are interested in attending, please RSVP to Naveen Khan at nkhan@amsl.com by 1400 on Monday. 

Finally, for general logistical information (e.g. how to get from the airport to your hotel) please check out our meeting wiki at https://www.ietf.org/registration/MeetingWiki/wiki/ietf98. If you have information to share, please create an account and contribute. 

Safe Travels,
