The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) held their 98th meeting in Chicago, USA, from 26 to 31 March 2017.
The IETF is an international community of network designers, operators, engineers, vendors, and researchers concerned with the evolution of the Internet architecture and the smooth operation of the Internet. This was the first of three conferences that they hold each year.
APNIC staff were among the 1,400 people who attended and participated during the week-long conference.
