Tomaz,

Please be assured that if you choose to pay the IETF fee, you will be
admitted.  The IETF does not sponsor closed working groups.  These
remain the province of the ISOC, in groups such as the IRTF, PSRG,
etc.  The IETF does not have a dress code.

It will also be the case that IETF members who wish to participate in
INET events will have to pay the INET fee.

The IETF also has a newcomer's meeting, and we will be happy to
explain the use of T-shirts and jeans, should the INET be willing to
have a meeting explaining the use of suits and ties.
