Disclaimer: I'm the technical host of the events mentioned below.
Still I write this merely as a guy caring about IPv6 security.

This is exactly what the "IPv6 Security Summit" (https://www.troopers.de/agenda13/troopers13-ipv6-security-summit-2013/index.html) at Troopers strives to be, in the future.
Agreed, this is a "commercial event" - or at least looks like one -  but the main purpose is to contribute to the greater good of the IPv6 security world, similar to the TelcoSecDay we introduced last year.
[as a side note: both at Troopers and potentially at the IPv6 Secsummit as well, we usually have a 1:1 ratio of researchers/students vs. "paying industry attendees", so neither event is about making profits and actually we've never done so in the past ;-)].

In any case we'd be happy to provide a forum in the above spirit by means of the event and I'd like to invite everybody here to contribute. If anybody thinks (s)he should be part of it but is unable/not willing to pay the fee, just let me
 know. We've always been open to invite individuals once compelling reasons as for their merit in the sense of the event were provided...

That said, I think Fernando's suggestion here is a great one and would be willing to join, be it next to an IETF meeting (btw, Fernando, Troopers14 will _not_ happen in parallel to IETF [89] ;-)) or at another occasion.
