NANOG 38: Call for Presentations - Oct 8-10 2006 - St. Louis, MO
The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 38th meeting October 8-10, 2006, in St. Louis, Missouri. The meeting will be co-hosted by Savvis and Washington University in St. Louis. This will be NANOG's fifth joint meeting with ARIN, the American Registry for Internet Numbers. NANOG will meet from Sunday to Tuesday, and ARIN from Wednesday to Friday, October 11-13. NANOG registration will open in August. 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 =============== A lightning talk is a very short presentation or speech by any attendee on any topic relevant to the NANOG audience. These are limited to ten minutes; this will be strictly enforced. If you have a topic that's timely, interesting, or even a crackpot idea you want to share, we encourage you to consider presenting it. Signups for lightning talks will be accepted during the NANOG meeting. 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 presentation information and an abstract online at: http://www.nanogpc.org Once you have done this, the you will receive instructions for submitting your draft slides. See http://www.nanog.org/presentations.html for complete submission guidelines. All submissions must 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 You may intead submit the presentation information and draft slides in email to [email protected] The deadline for proposals is Thursday, August 3, 2006.
