Alex, 

Thank you for completing the Doodle poll. Unfortunately, I apparently did not initially set a time zone for the call so I will need to ask you to resubmit your choices, as I’m sure they’ve changed.

Thanks,
Alexa

> An ICT-5 call for H2020 at the EU just closed recently.  Although its focus is Future Internet, that call expects IETF contribution as impact, and requires an approach for Future Internet that "be adapted to future applications such as sensor based applications." I suppose among the people formulating project proposals for this ICT-5 call there are IETF participants.  In order to reach them with an invitation to demo at BnB, one would have to find who is in charge at EU about ICT-5, find a Reviewer typically assigned by EU ICT-5 calls, etc.
