Now that the End-Middle-End Research Group has been formally chartered, 
I would like to introduce myself, Tilman Wolf, and my co-chair, Mark 
Williams, to those subscribed to the EME mailing list. Mark and I will 
handle the administrative duties of this research group and hope to 
engage in some of the technical discussions.

The EME charter can be found at 
http://irtf.org/charter?gtype=rg&group=eme . The goal of our research 
group is to explore issues related to "middleboxes," i.e., devices that 
are placed inside the network along the end-to-end communication path. 
Our next immediate milestones are to develop an applicability statement 
followed by a design choices document.

If you need to contact us, our email addresses are available on the 
above website. We are both looking forward to your active participation 
in this research group.
