I was thinking that the IETF secretariat is looking by default at the schedule
of organizations like IEEE or ITU-T, and tries to avoid conflicts with their
meetings, as well as with the major networking industry shows.
IEEE 802 meetings schedule is available at
http://ieee802.org/meeting/future_meetings.html. Dates are scheduled for the
IEEE 802 plenary meetings until 2005.

That's a very unfortunate conflict for everybody who is
the IEEE and IETF process, and has WG chair, and/or editor
responsibilities in both organizations. This scheduling conflict was
avoided at least for the last eleven years since I started
to attend the
IETF meetings. What happened this time?
Nobody reported the IEEE meeting to the calendar that the
at http://www.ietf.org/meetings/events.cal.html (or if anyone
did, it was
lost) - and none of the people who went looking for conflicts
on that date
knew of the IEEE dates.
They are now added...
