1. Introduction

The IP: next generation (IPng) area in the IETF is soliciting white

papers on topics related to the IPng requirements and selection

criteria.

All interested parties are invited to submit white papers detailing

any specific requirements that they feel an IPng must fulfill or any

factors that they feel might sway the IPng selection. An example of

the former might be a submission by a representative of a utility

company detailing the scaling and addressing features which would be

required to service future inclusion of utility meters on the

network. An example of the other case might be a paper outlining the

potential effect on IPng of some sections of the future network

connectivity being provided via wireless networks.

At this time, we are not accepting white papers that evaluate

specific IPng proposals. This type of document will be accepted

after the various proposal documents are deemed to be clear and

complete.

All white papers will be reviewed in a process described below. As a

result of these reviews, each white paper will receive the focused

attention of the IPng directorate and the community. The white

papers will be used as resource materials by the IPng Area working

groups, the directorate, the external review board and the area

directors, during the selection process.

The deadline for the submission of these white papers is February 1,

1994, though early submission is encouraged.

Submit white papers, general or topic questions, and so on, to

ipng-wp@harvard.edu.

2. Document Review Process

All submitted documents will first be reviewed for clarity by members

of the IPng directorate and the external review board. This review

may produce suggestions to the author on areas of the document where
