It was discussed yes and we felt that adding one more special fee without considering all of the other factors affecting affordability was inappropriate, and that doing that should be part of a community process to provide us with guidance.

> Payment is required at time of registration. If you initiate but do not complete the registration process, you will need to start again. If you require payment to be made by a 3rd party (e.g. internal accounting department) you have the option to forward your registration record to someone who can complete payment on your behalf. Please note that you are not considered registered until payment is received. 
> When you register you will be able to choose if you want to receive a free IETF 108 t-shirt delivered to you at no additional expense, thanks to Ericsson. Limited quantities are available, on a first-come-first-served basis with 900 reserved for Early Birds and 100 for Students.
> If you register and find that you can no longer attend the meeting, you can request a refund. The cutoff for all registration refunds is UTC 23:59 2020-07-20.  Refunds are subject to a 10% (ten percent) processing fee and if you have requested a t-shirt and that has been accepted and processed then we will additionally deduct a $30 fee from your refund.
> All participants will need a Datatracker account in order to authenticate with Meetecho.  If you do not already have an account then you can create one now [4] or one will be created for you during registration and you will receive a password setup link by email.  You will also be able to add an email address to your existing Datatracker account if you wish to use a separate email address for registration.
> If the fee presents a barrier to your participation you can apply for a fee waiver for IETF 108 by filling out this <> before 23:59 UTC on 2020-06-18.  Fee waivers are limited to 100 and if the number of requests exceeds the number we can offer, waiver recipients will be chosen at random using a process similar to the one specified in RFC 3797.  Fee waivers will be issued around 2020-06-23 in the form of vouchers to use in the registration system and those who do not receive a waiver will be informed on that date. Thanks to Google and Futurewei for sponsoring these fee waivers.
