NANOG 23            
October 21-23, 2001

The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will
hold its 23rd meeting in Oakland, CA, between October
21-23, 2001. The meeting will be hosted by Cisco Systems.
NANOG conferences provide a forum for the coordination and
dissemination of technical information related to
large-scale (i.e., national/international) Internet
backbone networking technologies and operational practices.

NANOG meetings, held three times each year, include two
days of short presentations, plus afternoon/evening
tutorial sessions.  Meetings are informal, with an emphasis
on relevance to current backbone engineering practices. The
conference draws over 600 participants, mainly consisting
of engineering staff from large national service providers,
and members of the research and education community.

The meeting will be held at the Oakland Marriott City
Center. For more information about NANOG meetings,
schedules, and logistics, see:



The special theme for NANOG23 is Backbone Security. We
invite presentations on security topics, including IPSec,
traffic filtering, DoS, and configuration and protection of
the backbone infrastructure. In addition to the themed
security session, NANOG also invites presentations on
topics related to backbone engineering and operations. 

Previous meetings have included presentations on: 

     - Backbone traffic engineering 
     - Coordination of inter-provider QoS 
     - Inter-provider security and routing protocol
     - Routing scalability in backbone infrastructures
     - Routing policy specification and backbone router
     - Building large-scale measurement infrastructure

     - Recommendations on queue management
          and congestion avoidance
     - Experience with differentiated services 
     - Inter-domain multicast deployment 
     - Backbone network failure analysis 

Tutorials have covered topics such as: 

     - BGP case studies 
     - MPLS fundamentals 
     - IP multicast technologies 
     - ISPs and federal privacy law
