Do you have an idea that you believe would be worthwhile standardising? Now would be a great time to start talking about it!

Please remember that BOFs are not the only way to propose new ideas, plenty of work fits into existing working groups as well, and we regularly create working groups after online discussion. But the beginning of the year is a good time to start talking about your ideas in any case.

The BOF deadline for Chicago is one month away (Feb 10).
