Peter Saint-Andre, Joe Hildebrand and I are organizing an HyBi BOF in 
If you would like to participate, please join the hybi at ietf.org 
<mailto:hybi at ietf.org> mailing list ( 
https://www.ietf.org/mailman/listinfo/hybi ).
There is also a wiki page that will be update to keep all the 
information: http://trac.tools.ietf.org/bof/trac/wiki/HyBi

We are still working on the Charter Proposal and on the Agenda so all 
the proposal and comments are welcome!

The purpose of this BoF and eventual WG is to work on
"HTTP bidirectional" communication and both its improvement and 
evolution in new a protocol(s)

Here are the topics we are thinking to include in the charter proposal:

    *   Characterize and describe the design space for long-poll
    *   list the Requirements for new browser protocol
    *   New browser protocol. WebSockets as a possible starting point.
    *   at the same time, while waiting for new eventual protocol to be
        we envision the need to continue to improve the long-poll approach:
          o a suggested long-poll approach
          o how to improve or optimize middle-box (e.g. proxy)
          o Protocol bindings into the long-poll approach

best regards
Salvatore Loreto
