Dear Colleagues,

Instead of sending the IAB report in full by email, we have this time uploaded the report into the proceedings of the datatracker (as also done for other reports e.g. from the IESG). We hope that this will help to better archive these reports and therefore also make them easier findable later on if needed. 

Here is the link to the full report:


I would still like to take the opportunity and highlight some on-going efforts:

IAB Open Meeting
The IAB will hold an IAB Open Meeting during IETF-108 on Tuesday, July 28, in Session 2: 13:00-13:50 UTC.

This session is aiming to provide an opportunity for more direct interaction and technical discussion between the community and the IAB, in both directions: providing information about and reporting back on work done as well as gathering input about on-going work. The agenda can be found here:


Proposed Program on Evolvabilty, Deployability, and Maintainability (EDM)
The scope for this program has been proposed for discussion on the architecture-discuss@iab.org list and a new mailing list has been created for further discussion at <edm@ietf.org>rg>.

IAB Workshop on COVID-19 Network Impacts
The IAB is planning to hold a virtual workshop on Network Impacts by the COVID-19 crisis in November. A Call for Contributions that will further outline the scope and covered list of topics will be send out soon.

If you have comments or concern you want to discuss, feel free to send me an email directly or to the IAB as whole at iab@iab.org!

Best regards,
Mirja Kühlewind
IAB Chair

On behalf of the IAB
