The annual Internet Engineering Task Force meeting, IETF 113, will start on Saturday, 19 March and run through Friday afternoon, 25 March in Vienna, Austria.
The IETF is an Internet standards body, developing open standards through open processes. As a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers, the IETF is concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the global Internet. The technical work of the IETF is done in working groups, organised by topic into several areas. Much of the work is handled via mailing lists. The IETF holds meetings three times a year.
