Re: protocols that don't meet the need...
Of course, there is nothing stopping NANOG or anyone else from collocating their meetings to be near the IETF's (in time or space)... but right now they would have a tough time figuring where that would be :)
The IETF commits to having its meetings
not collide with certain other meetings, and dates are typically set some years in advance :
Because of the recent reorganization, the IETF meetings are only specified through 2007, but
this will shortly be extended for another few years.
Once set, these date cannot be changed except for force majure. Recently IETF meetings have not been announced too long in advance (this summer's location is still officially TBD on this list, for example). I know that the IAD is scrambling to fill in the "where" part of this list into the future.
Hopefully, in the near future the IAOC and the IAD will have meeting sites planned out 2 years or so in advance.
Maybe, then, a collocation could be discussed.

So, NANOG has worked in the past (eg: ARIN) at joint meetings at a venue before, perhaps something similar would work. I find it interesting that NANOG and IETF are both in Dallas about a month from each other and both parties likely navigated the logistics issues of connectivity, etc.. for these hotels for a slightly overlapping audience. Do people think something like the NANOG-ARIN would work for NANOG-IETF? That might allow cross-breeding/ROI/whatnot and value to both communities. - jared On Tue, Feb 14, 2006 at 01:17:46PM -0800, Tony Hain wrote:--
