         Definition of Participation Metrics for IETF Attendees
             draft-elkins-mtgvenue-participation-metrics-01

Abstract

   IETF meetings are held physically in various geographic regions of
   the world. One of the criteria for choosing a location is the amount
   of participation by the people in that region. Additionally,
   questions arise as to whether holding a physical meeting in a
   location increases the amount of participation by local attendees.
   Participation in the IETF process may occur in a number of different
   ways: email lists, writing drafts, physical or remote attendance at a
   meeting, chairing Working Groups and so on. This document defines the
   metrics and terms which may be used to measure participation both
   before and after an IETF meeting.
