The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 25th
meeting June 9-11, 2002, in Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada (just outside
Toronto). The meeting will be hosted by Group Telecom.  Registration
begins April 22.
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 500
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 the Sheraton Parkway Toronto North. For
more information about NANOG meetings, schedules, and logistics, see:


NANOG invites presentations on backbone engineering, coordination, and
research topics. Presentations should highlight issues relating to
technology already deployed or soon to be deployed in core Internet
backbones and exchange points.

Previous meetings have included presentations on:

    - Backbone traffic engineering 
    - 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:

    - Inter-domain traffic engineering: principles, applications, and 
        case studies
    - BGP multihoming guide
    - ISP security: real world techniques 
    - IP multicast technologies


Submit a detailed abstract or outline describing the presentation in email
to [email protected]  The deadline for proposals is April 29, 2002.  
While the majority of speaking slots will be filled by April 29, a limited
number of slots will be available after that date for topics that are
exceptionally timely and important. Submissions will be reviewed by the
NANOG Program Committee, and presenters will be notified of acceptance by
May 13, 2002.

NANOG also welcomes suggestions/recommendations for tutorials, panels and
other presentation topics.
