Abstract

   Many people learn technical concepts best in a hands-on environment,
   and Internet protocols and standards are no exception. Internet
   Research Labs (IRL) will facilitate a platform and encourage the
   technical community (seasoned professionals and newcomers alike) to
   discuss, collaborate, design and develop utilities, ideas, sample
   code and solutions that show practical implementations (Proof of
   Concept) of existing IETF standards. These labs may also be used by
   the IETF Mentoring Program and/or EDU teams for hands-on training to
   mentees or newcomers. This base draft intends to provide a high-level
   overview of the concept of Internet Research Labs in terms of
   objectives, requirements, challenges and deliverables without going
   into details of a specific lab, technology or an IETF Working Group
   (WG). After this draft matures and gains traction within the IETF
   community, we foresee more and more Internet drafts for the specific
   labs.

Status of this Memo

   This Internet-Draft is submitted to IETF in full conformance with the
   provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

   Internet-Drafts are working documents of the Internet Engineering
   Task Force (IETF), its areas, and its working groups.  Note that
   other groups may also distribute working documents as
   Internet-Drafts.

   Internet-Drafts are draft documents valid for a maximum of six months
   and may be updated, replaced, or obsoleted by other documents at any
   time.  It is inappropriate to use Internet-Drafts as reference
   material or to cite them other than as "work in progress."
