3. IAB Agenda at IETF 103

The IAB discussed their agenda for IETF 103. Ted Hardie suggested adding an item on 5G to the Sunday agenda.

Cindy Morgan asked Program Leads to send her the details for any Program meetings.

7. IAB-specific instructions to the RFC Editor

8. Plenary Planning Program Update

Melinda Shore reported that she has drafted a call for participation in the Plenary Planning Program. Cindy Morgan will send the message to IETF-Announce.

Melinda Shore reported that the Plenary Planning Program has discussed whether it would be better to go back to having two plenaries. Melinda will add an item to the IAB’s joint agenda with the IESG to discuss this further at IETF 103.

The Program has also been discussing that it is difficult to get plenary topics where the level of architecture that is on-theme for the topic is a part of the architecture that the IAB is chartered to deal with. Ted Hardie noted that that discussion should probably be bigger than just the Plenary Planning Program. Allison Mankin suggested that it be added to the next IAB retreat agenda.

9. Upcoming Appointments and Personnel Issues (Executive Session)

The IAB discussed upcoming appointments to the ICANN Technical Liaison Group, the ISOC Board of Trustees, and the IRTF Chair in an executive session.
