Body
The IETF would like to inform 3GPP about the upcoming Netslices BoF
(Birds of a Feather) session, which will be held in the IETF meeting in
Prague (July 16-21, 2017). BoF sessions are used by the IETF to explore
new areas where potential IETF may be needed.

The Netslices BoF relates to the network slicing functionality 5G
systems will include. Therefore, individuals from 3GPP groups working on
network slicing may want to actively participate in the BoF. The
following is the mailing list where discussions related to this BoF are
taking place:

The Internet Drafts that are directly related to this BoF can be found
under the following link:

Please, note that the Netslices BoF will be a non-Working-Group-forming
BoF. As such, the goal of the BoF is to investigate the problem space
and discuss what work might need to be done in an IETF context. That is,
the BoF will not result in the direct chartering of a new working
group.
