[802SEC] URGENT - Action needed on IEEE Internet Initiative

Greetings all-

I have been invited to speak on a panel at a luncheon on Capital Hill, Friday, Sept 25,as part of the IEEE Internet Initiative. The full participant list is The invite that went out to staffers was:
The Internet is not a single thing. It is a complex web of devices, programs, institutions, rules, and people that are being utilized in innovative and totally unexpected ways every day. Net neutrality rules place demands on the Internet that will affect different parts of this complex system uniquely. Congress needs to understand the impact these new rules could have on applications including telemedicine, real-time applications, connected vehicles, and the Internet of Things in general.
Join IEEE and the IEEE-USA, whose members helped create the Internet and many of the rules that allow it to function, for a discussion about emerging technologies and how they fit into Internet regulations.
We just had an organizational call today. The tentative agenda is: Slides need to be in by next Weds morning ET.

What I need is a listing of what is going on in each of the 802 WGs that you think is relevant to the topic.  Please put that in the form of bullet points of activities with a BRIEF description. 10 minutes is not a lot of time. I will need this no later than the close of business Monday, Sept 21 eastern time.  I will go with what I have at that time.  Wish I could have given more lead time, but I just got off the organizational call 5 minutes ago.
