2. Liaison updates
2.1. ISOC Liaison
–Begin ISOC Liaison Report, Mat Ford–
Internet Society Liaison Report to the IAB 27 August 2013 Topics: I. ISOC Briefing Panel II. IETF Policy Program III. ITU - WTDC IV. ITU - Plenipot V. Post-WCIT Combating Spam Project VI. Upcoming ISOC Webinar on Internet Governance and participation opportunities I. ISOC Briefing Panel ISOC had a successful briefing panel during the IETF87 meeting in Berlin. The topic was "Improving Internet Experience: All together, now", and panelists discussed quality of experience requirements and implications from different perspectives (networking, application and OS). Video and audio recordings are available here: http://www.internetsociety.org/internet-society-briefing-panel-ietf-87 II. IETF Policy Program The policy program for IETF87 was a great success. We had our largest group yet of policymakers and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive about the experience and the opportunities for further collaboration in the future. We are already planning for IETF88 and are expecting roughly 10 guests in Vancouver. This group will largely come from the Latin American region - part of our effort to build up collaboration in the run-up to a possible IETF meeting in the region. III. ITU - WTDC The ITU hosted a Regional Preparatory Meeting for the WTDC in Montevideo on 26-30 August to prepare the region's input to the WTDC. The Internet Society contributed to the meeting (http://www.internetsociety.org/doc/ contribution-regional-preparatory-meeting-americas-2014-wtdc) and had two people participating in the RPM. The issue of the role of governments in Internet governance mechanisms was raised by Brazil and, ultimately, a compromise text was reached to strengthen the capacity of developing countries to participate in Internet governance mechanisms. IV. ITU - Plenipot ISOC is working to stand up a webpage for the Plenipot and is drafting a background paper that ISOC members and the IAB may use to come up-to- speed on the issues. The first early discussions on proposals and ideas is emerging from the Asia Pacific region as well as within a few of the Council working groups. One issue that may be of interest to the IAB is the question of how the ITU defines the term "ICTs" for purposes of ITU scope and mandate. V. Post-WCIT Combating Spam Project The project has two developing country workshops scheduled for 2013; Nairobi, Kenya on September 9th and Mendoza, Argentina on October 7th. The focus of these workshops is to present to policy makers the industry’s best practices and tools in combating spam as well as to have a dialogue on the role of governments as a partner with the technical community in addressing the issue of spam mitigation. VI. Upcoming ISOC Webinar on Internet Governance and participation opportunities ISOC is organizing a webinar on 19 September on key Internet governance events and the opportunities for all to participate in important consultation processes (CSTD, WSIS, etc.) This graphic does not intend to be exhaustive but provides a perspective (2003-2016) on a few of these milestones that are of interest to our community: http://www.internetsociety.org/sites/default/files/ig%20milestones%20_0.pdf - CSTD: The UN CSTD Working Group on Enhanced Cooperation has issued a questionnaire soliciting views on Enhanced Cooperation. The questionnaire is open to any relevant stakeholder involved in Internet-related public policy issues. Views on this important issue should be submitted by 31 August 2013: http://unctad.org/en/Pages/cstd.aspx - ISOC Questionnaire on Multistakeholder Participation: The Internet Society launched a survey to gain greater insights into multistakeholder governance perceptions and processes at all levels – national, regional, and international. The questionnaire is open to all interested participants and is available until 30 September 2013: https://internetsociety2.wufoo.com/forms/internet-society/ - IGF 2013: The IGF 2013 will be held from 22-25 October in Bali, Indonesia. The overarching theme proposed by the MAG for the 2013 IGF meeting is: "Building Bridges - Enhancing Multistakeholder Cooperation for Growth and Sustainable Development". For further information regarding the programme paper, the meeting or the venue, visit the IGF's (http://www.intgovforum.org/cms/) and ISOC’s websites. - WTDC-14: The ITU World Telecommunication Development Conference is taking place in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, from 31 March to 11 April 2014. The objective of WTDC-14 is to identify priorities for the development of telecommunications and ICTs, taking into account contributions made by ITU Member States and Sector Members, and to adopt the Sharm el-Sheik Action Plan (SSAP) setting future activities of the ITU Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D) over the next four years. Six Regional Preparatory Meetings (RPMs) are taking place in 2013 in preparation for WTDC-14. More information on participation modalities is available here: http://www.internetsociety.org/ development/world-telecommunication-development-conference-wtdc - ITU’s Strategic Plan 2016-2019: Individuals are invited to submit their comments by 6 September. Submissions may be provided on the ITU's platform (http://www.itu.int/PublicConsultations), or directly to email@example.com. - WSIS+10 Process: The WSIS+10 High Level Event will be organized by the ITU on 13-17 April 2014, in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt. Following on the first phase of the WSIS Review process initiated by UNESCO in February this year, this extended version of the WSIS Forum will assess progress made in the implementation of the WSIS outcomes (2003 and 2005) related to the WSIS Action Lines, with a view to developing proposals on a new vision beyond 2015, potentially exploring new targets. The preparatory process is comprised of an Open Consultation Process that will produce two draft Outcome Documents: 1/ a draft WSIS +10 Statement on the Implementation of WSIS Outcomes and 2/ a draft WSIS+10 Vision for WSIS Beyond 2015 under mandates of participating agencies: http://www.itu.int/wsis/review/mpp/ Input on these two documents is open to all WSIS stakeholders and can be provided until 20 September 2013. Proposals on themes & innovative approaches for the event's format are also sought by the same date. ISOC will continue to be very engaged in this process going forward: http://www.internetsociety.org/wsis .

–Begin IRTF Chair Report, Lars Eggert–
- The usual lull after a meeting. - Continuing discussions with the proponents of the NWCRG about how we can make sure that an RG in this space is open for many different approaches to network coding, esp. from non-US groups. - Discussion with ACM SIGCOMM. They want to attract more industry, we want to attract more researchers. ISOC (Leslie) is also thinking about what can be done here.

2.4. RFC Editor Liaison
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
1. RSE report: * RFC Format Design Team Team includes: Nevil Brownlee, Heather Flanagan (RSE), Tony Hansen, Joe Hildebrand, Paul Hoffman, Ted Lemon, Julian Reshke, Alice Russo, Robert Sparks (Tools Team liaison), Dave Thaler The team is currently working on mock-ups of the different proposed publication formats and discussing different potential transformation processes. This is largely the brainstorming component of the team's activities. We are on a biweekly call schedule, with our second call happening later today. * RPC and Publisher SoW After a public comment period, the SoW has been modified and returned to the IAOC for final review. * Style Guide update A revised draft will be posted on Wednesday, 4 September 2013, at which point note will go out to the RSAG when the new draft is posted to get their opinions on the various changes. After the RSAG review, a note will go to rfc-interest to get feedback on the new proposed Style Guide. The RSOC will also be asked to review the draft and decide if this is ready to go to the IAB for consideration as an IAB document. * RFC Editor meeting in mid-September A face to face meeting is planned for key RPC staff and the RSE in mid- September to review and revise plans around current priorities and continue work on Style Guide 2. RFC Production Center: * xx00 retirement status An update was posted to draft-rfced-rfcxx00-retired-04 to remove mention of retirement of STD1 and point to the appropriate retirement document drafted by the IESG. * xx99 retirement status We are working on an announcement to notify the community that we will officially no longer being publishing the xx99 summary documents (see details in draft-rfced-rfcxx99-retired). This practice was never documented in an RFC, so the RSOC recommended that a simple statement would be sufficient.
* August stats – see new report, attached
