* _[07.05]_ Meeting starts
    * Recording starts
    * **[Thomas]** states IETF Note Well
* _[07.06]_ Administrivia
    * Agenda bashing
    > agenda approved. No issues raised
    * Approval minutes from last meeting
    > minutes are approved. No issues raised
* _[07.07]_ Rechartering
    * charter text
        * the text for the new charter is stable
        * the text has been communicated to Brian Haberman (AD), waiting for
    * work items and milestones
        * Produce 6tisch architecture
        * 6top sublayer mechanisms
        * 6top SF
        * Secure 6tisch network bootstrap
        * produce requirements to detnet
        * **[Zhuo]** points that has been a lot of discussion w.r.t handling IP
        traffic (Sched. Function). * **[Pascal]** we want to focus on something
        we can produce. Non-IP traffic is PCE and we are not addressing that
        right now. * **[Zhuo]** a track should consist of several cells in
        different node schedules. This is part of the architecture *
        **[Pascal]** We do not support MPLS in this instance of the charter. *
        **[Pat]** could it be a compromise here. Like adding a "coma" saying
        ",not precluding any traffic." * **[Pascal]** clarifies that in the
        current charter there is a sentence that indicates that the current
        work is not advanced enough to focus on that topic but nothing prevents
        it. * **[Pat]** non-ip traffic, requiring some time slots. Should we
        work with the PCE then if we want non ip slots? * **[Thomas]**the
        allocation of a track is orthogonal to the mechanism. Zhuo can you
        clarify what you mean non-IP traffic? * **[Zhuo]** what happens if we
        create a hard cell track using the PCE and then we have 6top allocating
        soft cells on it. Would that be IP traffic? (CHECK THAT THIS IS WHAT HE
        SAID) * **[Pat]** How to coexist with other ... -- can we add a
        sentence to indicate that coexistence. * **[Pascal]**: architecture
        covers that with Chunks. > Action item: **Pascal** to check
        coexistence in the charter to be taken into account.
* _[07.22]_ new activity in the join process
    * slides presented by **Michael**

        * we have 6top that will be present in any 6tisch network. It
        communicates 2 neighbors.  * Can we leaverage it for security?

    * challenge: auth the network. Does the node join to the right network?
    * Future work: anima WG chartered. Lot of input to the 6tisch join sec.
    process. * Zigbee IP EAP-TLS + PANA * lots of fragmentation. * Thread Group
    is similar to the proposals of 6tisch released during 2015. * Suggestion:
    determine if the Thread group wont work. Propose changes if necessary. *
    **[Thomas]** Is there any relation between thread and anima? *
    **[Michael]** does not know.
* _[07.36]_ draft-wang-6tisch-6top-sublayer

    * Xavi: published v03 defines the cell negotiation protcol

    * uses 6P to install remove cells

    * does not say how the scheduling function decides

    * Uses/ expects IETF IE

    * **[Pat]**: The IETF IE should not be named 6top since there is one for
    whole IETF * **[Thomas]**: we need to describe in a small doc how split the
    IE for new features * **[Xavi]**: there is a section that discusses the
    liaison with IEEE to get this moving * **[Thomas]**: we are waiting for
    reviews by Yokohama, encourage support (or not) on the ML
* _[07.43]_ draft-dujovne-6tisch-6top-sf0
    * **[Thomas]**: sf0 is conplementary draft
    * **[Diego]** this is sequel to OTF draft defines a scheduling function

     * Procedure has 3 steps (see slides)

    * goal define the scheduling functions
    * named SF0 (Scheduling Function 0)
    * 3 steps:
        * monitor the traffic
        * estimate the bw required
        * determine the # cells to be allocated
    * Rules
    * **[Pascal]** need to restrict the set of cells we pick cells from in case
    we are using cells * **[Thomas]** +1 * **[Diego]** +1. Something we forgot
    * **[Thomas]** creates
    * container in 6top is used to allocate cells in a slotframe, chunk, etc,,
    can be any * the sf0 should use that container to define the meaning of the
    allocation (e.g when allocating a cell in a chunk).
* _[07.56]_ draft-thubert-6tisch-tracks
    * Slides presented by **Pascal**
    * what tracks are in 6tisch

* _[07.59]_ Preparing for IETF94 Yokohama
    * draft agenda
    * recommended formats and slides
* _[08.01]_ AOB
   No Other B.
   Is there going to be an interop in Yokohama? No.
   The interop will in Paris 2nd-4th Feb.
   No interin call in two weeks from now.
