Dear all,

We would like to give time to the Transport Area to discuss any 
potential need to evolve the IETF transport protocols.

There are a number of proposals discussed in the IETF and outside of the 
IETF on changing parts of TCP (e.g. laminar TCP [1]), reusing parts of 
TCP (e.g., TCP Minion [2]), completely new transport protocols (e.g. 
QUIC [3]), and also discussions about the congestion control approach to 
be used (e.g., delay-based [4], LEDBAT [5]).

(We are fully aware that this list of proposals is incomplete)

Spencer and I are planning a slot in the TSVAREA session at IETF 88 in 
Vancouver to discuss this topic.

More information to come soon.

Let Spencer and me know at if you are interested 
in contributing actively to the session.


   Spencer and Martin, your TSV ADs.
