IETF Meeting Email Lists

Meeting Discussion Lists

Each IETF meeting has an attendee discussion list where attendees can connect with each other regarding issues related to the meeting. Attendees are given the opportunity to subscribe to this mailing list when they register for the meeting.

IETF Travel Companions

A mailing list has been set up for companions of IETF attendees. This mailing list can be used to get in contact with other companions traveling to an IETF meeting in order to organize day trips, lunch, dinner or simply just get together while at an IETF meeting.

IETF Food Mailing List

This list is for IETF participants that have either medical, religious or ethical dietary requirements (e.g., celiac/gluten intolerance, Kosher, Halal, vegetarian/vegan, food allergies, diabetes, other special diets, etc.) - i.e., folks that can NOT subsist on cookies, beer, donut/pastries and sandwiches. The list is intended to provide a forum for discussion so that we can understand one another's requirements and plan ahead for IETF meetings by both preparing ourselves and the meeting planners.

Contact the Secretariat for Meeting Issues

To contact the Secretariat in order to resolve meeting issues that require the involvement of the Secretariat or IAD, please send a message to mtd@ietf.org. This will have a much quicker response time than a message to the attendees list.
