the RRG has been awfully quiet for a while now. I'd like to see if we can reboot the group and bring in some new work. There is clearly interesting work happening in the routing research space; we handed out several ANRP prizes to routing papers over the last few years. How can we bring some of that research into the RRG?

To that end, I'd like to ask if people would be interested in organizing a session - either at the next IETF meeting or maybe co-located with a conference - where folks can bring some ongoing academic work, in order to see if there's enough momentum to carry the group forward.

If that sounds interesting, great. I hope if sounds interesting enough to some of you to volunteer to put in the cycles and organize said meeting. If that doesn't sounds interesting, I'm all ears on how else we can restart activities in the RRG. Or maybe it's time to close?
