Feedback provided in post-meeting surveys frequently references support for public side meetings that are held during or alongside IETF meetings. The current level of support includes a wiki page where people can list the details about their planned side meetings for each IETF meeting. At this time, the IESG has no plans to increase the IETF support for side meetings, as we believe our current support arrangements are appropriate for the nature of these meetings. 

More detail is available at a recent blog post:
