This is a friendly follow-up reminder that preliminary proposals for Birds-of-a-Feather (BOF) sessions during the upcoming IETF 111 meeting are requested by 28 May 2021.

The intention is to allow the IESG and IAB more time to work with BOF proponents to clarify and refine proposals ahead of the IETF 111 BOF proposal deadline on 11 June 2021.

Instructions for submitting a BOF proposal are available at

Please also read, Considerations for Having a Successful Birds-of-a-Feather Session, if you are not familiar with it.

BOFs are just one of a number of ways of bringing new work into the IETF. If you are considering a BOF request but you are unsure whether to submit it, please tell the IESG now by sending an email to, or speak to an individual Area Director ( about your idea.
