The IAB has just notified the ITU-T that Deborah Brungard will be the new IETF Liaison Manager to the ITU-T for MPLS. Deborah was appointed following an open call for volunteers. Please congratulate Deborah when you see her. The IAB thanks Scott Mansfield for his past service in this role. Scott is now the overall liaison manager to ITU-T.
The plenary topic for IETF 86, The End of POTS, was proposed by an IETF participant. That plenary topic was well received. As the IAB prepares for IETF 87, we want to reach out to the IETF community for technical plenary topics. Please send suggestions to iab at iab.org.
The IAB is interested in hearing suggestions that could be presented by invited speakers, panels, or lightning talks. In other words, please do not let the format of past plenary presentations narrow your suggestions.
The IAB has selected Jonne Soininen as the liaison from the IETF community to ICANN Board, replacing Thomas Narten.
The IAB extends its sincere thanks to Thomas for serving the community for so long in this role, and is sure that Jonne will do a fantastic job going forward.
The IAB will be appointing a liaison manager to ITU-T for MPLS within the next few weeks. We are soliciting volunteers for this position. Nominations (including self-nominations) for this position should be sent to: scott.mansfield at ericsson.com no later than Sunday, April 14, 2013.
