1300-1445  Newcomer's Training - Convention 3
Presented by: Scott Bradner

  Covers the IETF document processes, the structure of the IETF, and 
tips for
new attendees to be successful in the IETF environment.

1500-1645  Document Lifecycle - Convention 3
Presented by: Alice Hagens and Margaret Wasserman

  This tutorial offers an overview of producing documents in the IETF,
from version 00 of an Internet-Draft to publication as an RFC.  We
will cover the working group process, and the required and suggested
contents of an Internet-Draft, including information from IANA staff
about writing IANA Considerations sections.   We will walk through
the lifecycle including authorship, WG draft, IETF Last Call, IESG
evaluation, and what to expect during the RFC publication process.
We will provide a set of helpful hints to authors about formatting
rules and editorial policies that often improve the quality of the
resulting documents.  We will summarize the states of the RFC
publication process and provide an opportunity to ask questions of
RFC Editor staff.
