I wanted to send a reminder that proposals for "Birds of a Feather” (BOF) sessions at IETF 108 are due no later than Friday, 12 June at 23:59 UTC. 

Instructions for submitting your proposal are available at: <> 

Please also read RFC 5434 ( <>), Considerations for Having a Successful Birds-of-a-Feather Session, if you are not familiar with it. 

With IETF 108 now an online meeting, we will schedule BOFs as online sessions. The online IETF 108 meeting will take place 27-31 July from 11:00 to 16:00 UTC each day.

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 <> 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 ( <>) about your idea if you’re thinking about proposing a BOF.

More information about IETF 108 will be available soon at: <>
