I wanted to remind everyone that proposals for "Birds of a Feather” (BOF) sessions at IETF 104 are due Friday, February 8 by 23:59 UTC. 

Instructions for submitting your proposal are available at https://ietf.org/iesg/bof-procedures.html <https://ietf.org/iesg/bof-procedures.html>;. Please also read https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5434 <https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc5434>;, Considerations for Having a Successful Birds-of-a-Feather Session, if you are not familiar with it. IETF 104 will take place March 23-29 in Prague, Czech Republic.

If you are working on a BOF request but you’re not quite ready to submit it, please tell the IESG now by sending an email to iesg@ietf.org <mailto:iesg@ietf.org> to get advance help with the request. We have a number of ways of bringing new work into the IETF and BOFs are just one of them, so please talk to the IESG or an individual area director (https://ietf.org/iesg/members.html <https://ietf.org/iesg/members.html>) about your idea if you’re thinking about proposing a BOF.

Thanks,
Alissa Cooper
IETF Chair
