We arranged a bar-bar-BOF (at IETF-80 in Prague) on Wednesday (2011-03-30) evening. This was a very informal event at a real bar. The purpose was just to see who would be interested and collect ideas for possible topics to be addressed in an IRTF RG on Information Centric Networking.

The BOF was be held at the Celnice bar/restaurant, V celnici 4, at 20.30 Wednesday evening. Thanks to everyone that attended! Slides and notes from the bar-BOF are available below.
