Dear colleagues,

Please find below a call for papers for RIPE66 meeting in May next year.

*Call for Papers: RIPE 66*

A RIPE Meeting is an open event where Internet Service Providers,
network operators and other interested parties get together. Although
the meeting is mostly technical, it is also a chance for people to meet
and network with others in their field.

RIPE 66 will take place on 13-17 May 2013 in Dublin, Ireland.

The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from
the RIPE community for the Plenary, BoF and Tutorial sessions at RIPE
66. The PC is looking for presentations covering topics of network
engineering and operations, including but not limited to:

- IPv6 deployment
- Managing IPv4 scarcity in operations
- Commercial transactions of IPv4 addresses
- Data center technologies
- Network and DNS operations
- Internet governance and regulatory practices
- Network and routing security
- Content delivery
- Internet peering and mobile data exchange


Attendees of the RIPE meetings are quite sensitive to keeping
presentations non-commercial, and product marketing talks are strongly
discouraged. Repeated audience feedback shows that the most successful
talks focus on operational experience, research results, or case
studies. For example, presenters wishing to describe a commercial
solution should focus on the underlying technology and not attempt a
product demonstration.

Presenters who are proposing a panel or BoF are encouraged to include
speakers from several (perhaps even competing) companies and/or a
neutral facilitator.

In addition to presentations selected in advance for the Plenary, the
RIPE PC also offers several time slots for “lightning talks” which are
selected immediately before or during the conference.

The following requirements apply:

- Proposals for Plenary talks, BoFs, Panels and Tutorials must be
submitted for full consideration no later than 24 February 2013, using
the meeting submission system at:


Proposals submitted after this date will be considered on a
space-available basis.

- Presenters should indicate how much time they will require (30 minutes
for talks is a common maximum duration, although some talks can be longer).

- Proposals for talks will only be considered by the PC if they contain
at least draft presentation slides (slides may be updated later on). For
BoFs and panels, proposals must contain a clear description as well as
names of invited panelists/presenters.

- Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most if not all
presenters/panelists will be physically present at the RIPE meeting.

- Lightning talks should be submitted using the meeting submission
system. They must be short (10 minutes maximum) and often involve more
timely topics. They can be submitted at any time. The allocation of
lightning talk slots will be announced one day prior to the relevant

If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions,
please email pc [at] ripe [dot] net.
