Abstract

   The document defines how Geographically-Focused IETF Activities are
   organized and how IETF policies apply.  It is intended for eventual
   publication as a BCP but this is currently an initial strawman
   proposal based upon the existing variety of experience with the
   experimental activities in this space over the past several years.

1.  Introduction

   The IETF primarily focuses our activities on plenary meetings,
   mailing lists, and individual Working Group interim meetings with
   Internet Drafts, RFCs, and some structured text or code as
   deliverables.  There has been and continues to be interest in having
   activities focused in different geographical areas.  There is a wide
   variety of such activities that are supported by different
   motivations and objectives.  The following list is illustrative - not
   restrictive.

   1.  IETF Days supported by the Internet Society

   2.  View-only of a Working Group Session with IETF introduction

   3.  RFCs We Love technical talks meeting
