About IETF Meetings

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is the premier Internet standards body, developing open standards through open processes to make the Internet work better. The IETF is a large open international community of network designers, operators, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet.

While the work of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) happens online year-round, the IETF holds face-to-face meetings three times a year in locations around the world. IETF meetings generally run Saturday through Friday and include technical Working Group sessions as well as a hackathon, IETF Codesprint, newcomers’ training, technical tutorials, and multiple side events.

The Internet Society provides a corporate home for the administrative entity that supports the IETF, the IAB, and the IRTF, and supports the work of these groups through a variety of programs. [Learn more in RFC 8712.]

The Internet Society is highly involved in many aspects of these meetings, offering technical expertise in multiple working groups and Birds-of-a-Feather (BoF) sessions, providing fellowships to new attendees, participating in IETF leadership discussions, and more.
