The 6TiSCH WG held 2 meetings, a 3-hour plugfest followed by a 2-hour WG meeting.
The plugfest was held on March 6 2014, 0900-1200 GMT, and chaired by Xavi Vilajosana. It was attended by 32 people, including Bob Heile (Chairman Emeritus and Chief Technologist ZigBee Alliance, chair IEEE802.15) and Pat Kinney (vice-chair IEEE802.15, chair of ISA100), and featured three complementary angles: interoperation, demonstration and tools. The group shared on sniffing tooling, and provided implementation feedback on the 6TiSCH minimal configuration draft, which is a chartered item at 6TiSCH. We demonstrated open-source (OpenWSN) implementations of 6TiSCH running on multiple types of hardware, as well as a port to the RIOT OS. We also demonstrated a multilink subnet with a classical Ethernet backbone that federates LLNs based on the proxy ND operations as described in the 6TiSCH architecture.

The WG meeting was held on March 6 2014, 1300-1500 GMT, and chaired by Pascal Thubert and Thomas Watteyne. Since the WG is fairly new (this is its 2nd meeting) the chairs gave a quick recap on the 6TiSCH charter and milestones. The following drafts were presented:
- http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-6tisch-architecture-01 (Pascal Thubert)
- http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wang-6tisch-6top-interface-02 (Xavi Vilajosana)
- http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-wang-6tisch-6top-sublayer-00 (Qin Wang)
- http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-dujovne-6tisch-on-the-fly-02 (Diego Dujovne)
- http://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-piro-6tisch-security-issues-01 (Giuseppe Piro)
A rough consensus for adoption as WG document for draft-wang-6tisch-6top-interface was reached at the meeting; a call for adoption was subsequently started on the Mailing List.
Security discussions lead by Michael Richardson occupied an overall half hour of the meeting. Michael reported a summary of the Design Team work for the 6TiSCH architectures, and heated discussions followed.
Xavi Vilajosana reported on the plugfest, and had each participant give a 3min presentation of the material presented and the lessons learnt.
