The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 24th
meeting February 10-12, 2002, in Miami, Florida. The meeting will be
hosted by Terremark Worldwide.  Registration begins January 2.
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.  Meetings are held three times each year, and
include two days of short presentations, plus afternoon/evening tutorial
sessions. The meetings are informal, with an emphasis on relevance to
current backbone engineering practices. NANOG conferences draw over 600
participants, mainly consisting of engineering staff from national service
providers, and members of the research and education community.  <p>

The meeting will be held at the Hotel Inter-Continental Miami. For more
information about NANOG meetings, schedules, and logistics, see:

    - Inter-provider security and routing protocol authentication 
    - Routing scalability in backbone infrastructures 
    - Security issues for the Internet core 
    - Routing policy specification and backbone router configuration 
    - Building large-scale measurement infrastructure 
    - Cooperative inter-provider caching 
    - Alternatives to hot-potato routing 
    - 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 
    - Tools and techniques for ISP security
    - External route selection 
    - IP multicast technologies 



Submit a detailed abstract or outline describing the presentation in email
to [email protected] The deadline for proposals is January 2, 2002.
While the majority of speaking slots will be filled by January 2, a
limited number of slots will be available after that date for topics that
are exceptionally timely and important. Submissions will be reviewed by
