Apologies for the noise, but just a note that I made an error with
setting up the submission system. The link to submit presentation
proposals for MENOG 6 is now working properly.
Thanks to those who pointed out the problem.

> or any colleagues or industry friends to consider participating in MENOG
> as a speaker! :-)

> CFP SUBMISSION
> When considering a presentation or tutorial, remember that the MENOG
> audience is mainly comprised of technical network operators and
> engineers with a wide range of experience levels from beginners to
> multi-year experience. There is a strong orientation to offer core
> skills and basic knowledge in the tutorials and to address issues
> relevant to the day-to-day operations of ISPs and network operators
> over the next 12 - 18 months in the conference sessions.
> Draft slides for both tutorials and conference sessions MUST be
> provided with CfP submissions. The Programme Committee cannot consider
> a presentation proposal without accompanying draft slides.
> While the majority of speaking slots will be allocated by 15th of
> March 2010, a limited number of slots may be available after then for
> presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical
> operational importance.
> IMPORTANT NOTE
> MENOG is a TECHNICAL conference so marketing and commercial content is
> not allowed within the programme. The programme committee will
> maintain the technical standard of MENOG, and will therefore
> not accept inappropriate materials. It is expected that the presenter
> be a technical person and not a sales or marketing person. The
> audience is extremely technical and expects that the speakers are
> themselves very knowledgeable. All sessions provide time for
> questions, so presenters should expect technical questions and be
> prepared to deliver insightful and technically deep responses.
> FUNDING AND SUPPORT
> MENOG is a not-for-profit event that is trying to make the conference
> as close to zero cost as possible for attendees; therefore we are
> unable to pay the travel costs of speakers.
