First, a reminder that IETF 108 is switching to a fully online meeting over 5 days with an agenda structure similar to that of an in-person meeting.  IETF 108 is hosted by Ericsson and runs 27-31 July 2020 with the IETF 108 Hackathon the week before. Registration is now open at:

	https://registration.ietf.org  


Second, following a recent consultation [1] the IETF Administration LLC is pleased to announce the following changes to fee waivers for IETF 108:

* The number of fee waivers available for IETF 108 is now unlimited 
* Fee waivers are now available at any time until the end of IETF 108.

If the registration fee for IETF 108 presents a barrier to your participation you can apply for a fee waiver for IETF 108 by filling out this form and you will be provided with a free registration:

	https://www.ietf.org/how/meetings/108/108-registration-fee-waiver/

Fee waivers are offered on an honour system with no check on eligibility. 

If you have already paid the fee and now require a fee waiver then you can contact registrar@ietf.org for a full refund.


Please note that it will be a little while before the website and fee waiver form are updated to reflect these changes.


Feel free to contact me directly if you have any questions.
