I Workshop pre-IETF

The Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) is an international community
interested in fulfilling the mission of defining standards that impact
the design, use and management of Internet resources [RFC3935 (
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc3935.txt )]. The process of establishing
standards for the Internet is long, complex and requires active
participation, particularly of students and researchers. There are many
people around the world actively working on it, however there is a
growing need for more fresh participation.

The attendance from Latin America has been very low, as many potential
targeted participants do not know about the IETF or were not motivated
to do so. A group of volunteers emerged from the “IETF – LAC list” to
build this Workshop, aiming to increase Latin American presence in IETF
processes. Besides outreaching about IETF, it is important to provide an
environment that allows our technicians, students and researchers to
show their skills, in advance of any IETF meeting.

The papers presented at the workshop will be adapted or supplemented if
necessary, and forwarded to the IETF, with effective support (by the
Committee Pos Workshop) to increase Latin American participation.
