3. Future Tech Plenaries

Lee Howard reported that speakers are lined up for the IETF 101 plenary and that they are currently sorting out the travel funding details. He noted that the IAB might want to have a conversation at their retreat about funding travel for speakers versus finding local speakers or speakers who would already be attending the IETF meeting.

The IAB approved travel funding for the IETF 101 speakers. Ted Hardie will work offline to see if he can find another source of funding to supplement the IAB travel budget.

4. IAB Retreat

5. Updating IAB Statement on Identifiers and Unicode 7.0.0

Suzanne Woolf reported that Asmus Freytag is planning to resurrect an expired Internet-Draft (draft-freytag-troublesome-characters) that addresses some of the issues with Unicode code points that need special consideration.

6. Response to Liaison Statement on IPv6 Work Items

Lee Howard noted that it is difficult for the IAB to respond to the proposed work items when the document cannot be shared with the full IAB. He is currently reviewing the document; there may be parts that where responding would be helpful, particularly by providing pointers to some of the GEOPRIV WG documents. Gabriel Montenegro said that there may also be a relevant document in the 6LO WG. Lee will send a draft response to the IAB for review soon.

Jari Arkko sent draft text for a problem statement on consolidation out to the IAB for review. The IAB will discuss this further at their next meeting (7 February 2018).
