Are you an experienced network operator willing to share your expertise
and unique insight with peers in the Middle East?  Or have you a great
idea or new concept you'd like to share with your colleagues?

MENOG 14 takes place from 23 March to 1 April 2014 in Dubai.  The
program includes workshops (23-27 March), plenary conference (30-31
March) and technical tutorials (1 April).

The MENOG Program Committee (PC) is seeking submissions from network
operators, researchers and technology specialists in the Middle East to
teach a technical tutorial or lead a workshop and/or give a technical
presentation during the conference.

Potential topic areas could include:
      IPv6 deployment
      HTTP and non-HTTP content filtering; anti-spam
      Internationalized Domain Names (IDN) and localization
      NREN (National Research and Education Networks)
      ISP operations, peering and Internet Exchange Points
      ISP network security
      Data Centers, applications and services
      DNS and DNSsec
      IP Address Management

If you would like to participate in the MENOG 14 program, please
submit your proposal AND draft slides to our submission system for
review, here:


Guidelines for Submissions:

- When considering a presentation or tutorial, remember that the MENOG
   audience is mainly comprised of technical network operators and
   engineers with varying experience levels.

- Tutorials should focus on teaching core skills and basic knowledge.
   A tutorial session is 90-minutes or 180-minutes long.

- Conference presentations should address issues that ISPs and network
   operators could face over the next 12-18 months in their day-to-day
   operations.  Conference presenters should plan for a 25-minute
   presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A period.

- Please note that marketing/commercial content will not be
   considered.  The presenter should come from a technical background,
   not sales/marketing.

Deadline and Notification of Accepted Presentations:

   The deadline to submit is 23 February 2014.

The MENOG PC (Program Committee) will confirm whether your
presentation proposal is accepted before 1 March 2014.

Late submissions that are exceptionally timely or of critical
operational importance will be considered on a case-by-case basis.

Funding and Support:

MENOG is a not-for-profit event that aims to keep the cost of
attending as low as possible for attendees.  For this reason, MENOG is
unable to subsidize the cost of travel for speakers.

On behalf of the coordination committee.
