Call for Presentations

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 67 will take place from 14-18 October 2013 in Athens, Greece.

The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from
the RIPE community for the plenary session presentations, BoFs (Birds of
a Feather sessions), panels, workshops, tutorials and lightning talks at
RIPE 67. 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 centre technologies
    Network and DNS operations
    Internet governance and regulatory practices
    Network and routing security
    Content delivery
    Internet peering and mobile data exchange


RIPE Meeting attendees 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.

The RIPE PC accepts proposals for different presentation formats,
including plenary session presentations, tutorials, workshops, BoFs
(Birds of a Feather sessions) and lightning talks. See the full
descriptions of these formats

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 general requirements apply:

-  Proposals for plenary session presentations, BoFs, panels, workshops
and tutorials must be submitted for full consideration no later than 4
August 2013, using the meeting submission system. Proposals submitted
after this date will be considered on a space-available basis.
-  Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission
system and can be submitted just days before the RIPE Meeting starts or
even during the meeting week. The allocation of lightning talk slots
will be announced in short notice – in some cases on the same day but
often one day prior to the relevant session.
-  Presenters should indicate how much time they will require. See more
information on time slot allocations per presentation format.
-  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
panels, proposals must contain a clear description, as well as the names
of invited panelists, presenters and moderators.
-  Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not
all, presenters/panelists will be physically present at the RIPE Meeting.

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