Dear all,

We would like to announce the plugfest event at the 90th IETF Meeting in

We call for participants. The deadline to receive topics to present or
demonstrate in the event is 06/13/2014. Interested audience is also welcome
and we encourage audience to participate in the feedback session.

Please find next the plugfest information.

We hope to see you there!

Xavier and Ines.

Low Power and Lossy Networks plugfest at IETF90

The IETF 6TiSCH <https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6tisch/charter/>, IETF 6lo
<https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6lo/charter/> and IETF ROLL
<https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/roll/charter/> working groups are hosting
an informal "plugfest" event at the IETF90 meeting, in Toronto, CA, during
the week of July 20-25 2014.

The goal of this event is to bring together people interested in hands-on
experience around the technology developed by the 6TiSCH, 6lo and ROLL
working groups, with a particular focus on the TSCH mode of IEEE802.15.4e,
6lowpan, RPL and new WG specifications.
When and where ?

   - *Date*: Sunday July 20 2014, 0900-1300 EDT.
   - *Location*: Meeting Room TBD, Fairmont Royal York Hotel 100 Front
   Street W, Toronto, CA.

*Early access: TBD if the plugfest room will be open starting 8am EDT on
Sunday 20 2014 to allow people to set up.*
Topology proposed - TBD

   - Star topology
   - IPv6

Complementary angles

This event will feature the following complementary angles:

   - Interoperation
   - Demonstration
   - Tools

Focus 1: Interoperation

Download the interoperation guidelines:

   - - TBD for Toronto - interoperation guidelines, version 1 (London)

The goal is to achieve interoperation between different hardware and
software implementations on the different aspects addressed by 6lo, 6TiSCH
and ROLL WGs. This include 6TiSCH minimal draft implementation,
demonstrating TSCH synchronization and OF0 for RPL on a minimal network.
6lowpan to demostrate cross link layer inter-operability by means of
bridges or backbones routers. Storing and non-storing RPL implementation
including its coexistance in different sub-networks.

The focus during this event is open to demonstrating 6lo, ROLL or 6TiSCH
drafts implementations, including but not limited to: e.g. - 6TiSCH minimal
draft: http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal-00. - TBD

Participants are encouraged to bring devices which implement parts or all
of the listed drafts.

Levels of interoperation are proposed:

   - *Level 1*, star topology. A single BBR devices acts as the time source
   neighbor for all other nodes. Nodes need to demonstrate frame-based and
   acknowledgement-based synchronization. The static TSCH schedule, as well as
   all slot timings are taken from draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal-00.
   - *Level 2*, multi-hop topology. This level builds upon level 1. The
   goal of this level is full compliance to draft-ietf-6tisch-minimal-00,
   including multi-hop routing (RPL).
   - *Level 3*, on-the-fly scheduling. [optional] Preliminary
   implementations of
   http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-dujovne-6tisch-on-the-fly can be shown.
   - *Level 4*, drafts from ROLL, such as:
   draft-ko-roll-mix-network-pathology, Opportunistic routing, selective DIS,
   and others that participants want to show
   - *Level 5*, drafts from 6lo, such as: draft-ietf-6lo-btle,
   draft-ietf-6lo-ghc,draft-ietf-6lo-lowpanz, and others that participants
   want to show.
   - *Level 6* Other drafts, such as draft-thubert-6man-flow-label-for-rpl,

Focus 2: Demonstration

Participants are encouraged to bring devices and technology based on
6TiSCH, 6lo and ROLL which they believe can be of interest for the other
participants. These devices may or may not participate in the
interoperation event. Demonstration of more complete systems are
encouraged, for example systems which show the interconnection of a 6TiSCH
based mesh to traditional networks.
Focus 3: Tools

Participants are encouraged to bring and present different tools developed
around 6TiSCH/6lo/ROLL networks. Possible tools include, but are not
limited to:

   - acquisition devices (i.e. "sniffers")
   - packet analysis tools (e.g. Wireshark)
   - simulation/emulation platforms

Important Dates

The preparation of this event will be held during a portion of the
bi-weekly 6TiSCH call (*To Be Decided how and when!!!*). In particular:

   - *06/02/2014* Announcement of the plugfest event to the WG/ML related
   with constrained devices, such as: 6tisch, 6lo, roll, core, lwig, dtls-iot,
   coman, ace, etc.
   - *06/06/2014* Adoption of the plugfest call by the WGs, and call for
   participants at each group.
   - *06/02/2014-06/13/2014* Participants have contacted the plugfest
   chairs (Xavier or Ines) with a tentative description of what they wish to
   participate in.
   - *06/20/2014* Synchronization point 1. Participants can share the state
   of advancement of the implementation and raise blocking points.
   - *07/11/2014* Synchronization point 2. Participants can share the state
   of advancement of the implementation and raise blocking points.
   - *07/20/2014*. Plugfest at IETF90.

Tentative Agenda from 9:00 to 13:00

   - *[09.00]* Welcome and Initial Instructions
   - *[09.05]* Participants Pitch (5 min per Participant)
   - *[09.45]* Participants Pitch Tools (5 min per Participant)
   - *[10.15]* Interoperation (Islands)
   - *[11.50]* Feedback and open discussion.
   - *[12.40]* Acknowledgements and Plugfest End

Note Well

This event is organized as part of the IETF90 standardization meeting. You
need to register to the IETF90 conference to be able to participate. Daily
passes are available. The IETF Note Well applies to this plugfest, see

The IETF 6TiSCH working group standardizes mechanisms focusing on enabling
IPv6 over the TSCH mode of the IEEE802.15.4e standard. You can access the
charter at http://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6tisch/charter/, which also
contains links to the mailing list and the Internet-Drafts published by the
group. 6TiSCH holds weekly phone calls on Friday 8am PST. Participation is
open, and is subject to the IETF Note Well.

The IETF 6lo working group focuses on the work that facilitates IPv6
connectivity over constrained node networks with the characteristics of:
limited power, memory and processing resources;. You can access the charter
at https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/6lo/charter/, which also contains links
to the mailing list and the I-D published by the group.

The IETF ROLL working group is focused on routing issues for LLN (Low Power
and Lossy Networks), in IPv6 routing architectural framework for the
industrial, connected home, building and urban sensor networks application
scenarios. You can access the charter at
https://datatracker.ietf.org/wg/roll/charter/, which also contains links to
the mailing list and the I-D published by the group.
