Call for Presentations - NANOG 37 - June 5-7, 2006
The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 37th meeting June 11-14, 2006, in a location TBA. The meeting will be hosted by UltraDNS. NANOG conferences provide a forum for information exchange among network operators, engineers, and researchers. Meetings are held three times each year, and include panels, presentations, tutorial sessions, and BOFs. NANOG solicits presentations highlighting issues relating to technology already deployed or soon to be deployed in the Internet. The NANOG community is invited to attend and participate in this forum, which offers numerous opportunities to share ideas, explore research and development, and interact with leaders in this important field of network operations. Vendors are encouraged to work with operators to present deployment experiences with the vendor's products and interoperability. General Session =============== The community is invited to develop panel sessions or present talks on topics relevant to the NANOG community, including: Network Operations Present-day operational case studies Everyday life in the NOC and tools of interest Exchange point technologies and implementation Peering/colocation coordination issues Content provider issues Security attacks/mitigation, tools, and analysis State of OAM tools for IP and MPLS networks Disaster recovery and planning Deployment Experience Mergers and their impact on interconnected networks Alternative and emerging last-mile technologies (metro/rural, broadband, radio, optical, etc.) VoIP deployment, architecture, peering, and interconnect Anycast IPTV Large-scale wireless Fiber and wavelength use by enterprises Research, Policy, and New Technology Approaches to securing the global routing system (e.g., s*BGP and/or other tools) Routing system scalability Capacity planning standards and tools Inter-provider MPLS/QoS/PCE RIR policy (e.g., implications of HD ratio) Active standards organizations and areas of interest IPv6: economics, deployments, and adoption rates Approaches to IPv6 scalability, e.g., Shim6 Panels ====== Panel selection will be based on the importance, originality, focus and timeliness of the topic; expertise of proposed panelists; as well as the potential for informative and controversial discussion. The panel leader should provide an abstract describing the panel theme, list of panelists, and an outline of how the panel will be organized. After acceptance, the panel leader will be given the option to invite panel authors to submit their presentations to the NANOG Program Committee for review. Until then authors should not submit their individual presentations for the panel. Lightning Talks =============== Topics for short (10-20 minute) lightning talks will be solicited on-site at the meeting. "Technologies to Watch" topics will be appropriate for this session. Lightning talks were a hit in Dallas so collect your thoughts early! Research Forum ============== Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute) summaries of their work for operator feedback. Topics include routing, network performance, statistical measurement and analysis, and protocol development and implementation. Studies presented may be works in progress. Researchers from academia, government, and industry are encouraged to present. Tutorials ========= Proposals are also invited for tutorial sessions from the introductory through advanced level on all related topics, including: Disaster Recovery Planning Troubleshooting BGP Best Practices for Determining Traffic Matrices Options for Blackhole and Discard Routing BGP/MPLS Layer 3 VPNs How to Present ============== Submit an abstract and draft slides for the presentation in email to [email protected] See this web page for submission guidelines. Your submission should include: Author's name(s) Preferred contact email address Submission category (General Session, Panel, Tutorial, Research Forum) Presentation title Abstract Slides (attachment or URL), in PDF (preferred) or Powerpoint format We are also developing an online submission system, and hope to have it available shortly. Check the NANOG main page for updates. The deadline for proposals is April 17, 2006. While the majority of speaking slots will be filled by April 17, a limited number of slots may be available after that date for topics that are exceptionally timely, important, or critical to the operations of the Internet. Submissions will be reviewed by the NANOG Program Committee, and presenters will be notified of acceptance by May 8. Final drafts of presentation slides are due by May 24, and final versions May 31.
