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 78 will take place from 20-24 May in Reykjavik, Iceland*

The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from
the RIPE community for the plenary sessions, BoFs (Birds of a Feather
sessions), panels, workshops, tutorials and lightning talks at RIPE 78.
See the full descriptions of the different presentation formats:

https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/presentation-formats/ <https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/presentation-formats/>

Proposals for plenary sessions, BoFs, panels, workshops and tutorials
must be submitted for full consideration no later than *3 March 2019*.

Proposals submitted after this date will be considered depending on the
slots still available in the programme.

The PC is looking for presentations covering the topics of network
engineering and operations, including but not limited to:

- IPv6 deployment
- Managing IPv4 scarcity
- Data centre technologies
- Network and DNS operations
- Internet governance and regulatory practices
- Network and routing security
- Content delivery
- Internet peering and mobile data exchange
- Connected Things (aka. Internet of Things - IoT)

Presenters, RIPE Working Group Chairs and the RIPE Programme Committee
are required to cover their own costs to attend a RIPE Meeting (meeting
ticket, travel and accommodation).  We have various ticket options
available depending on your needs.

Please note that participants can apply for a RIPE Fellowship or RACI,
on an individual basis, to develop their professional or academic career.

For more information, please visit:

https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/ripe-fellowship <https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/ripe-fellowship>
https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/raci <https://www.ripe.net/participate/ripe/raci>

In extraordinary circumstances, the RIPE Chair can waive the meeting fee
for presenters.  These requests are dealt with on a case-by-case basis
via pc at ripe.net <mailto:pc at ripe.net>.

Presenters should be clear on whether they wish to submit a presentation
for a plenary or working group (WG) session.  At present, most working
groups will solicit policy proposals, discussion points or other content
directly via their mailing lists.  If you’re not sure what kind of
session you should be presenting at, please visit:
https://ripe78.ripe.net/plenary-or-wg/ <https://ripe78.ripe.net/plenary-or-wg/>

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 should not attempt a product demonstration.

Presenters should indicate how much time they will require.  In general,
the time allocated for the different presentation formats is as follows:

- Plenary presentations: 20-25 minutes presentation with 5-10 minutes
- Tutorials: up to two hours (Monday morning)
- Workshops: one hour (during evening sessions) to two hours (Monday
- BoFs: approximately one hour (during evening sessions)
- Lightning talks: 10 minutes in total for both the presentation and any

The following general requirements apply:

- Proposals must be submitted using the meeting submission system,
 https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/ <https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/>

- Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission
 system (https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/ <https://ripe78.ripe.net/submit-topic/>) and can be submitted
 any time up to and including the meeting week.  The allocation of
 lightning talks will be announced on short notice, in some cases on
 the same day but often one day prior to the time slot allocated.

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

- All presentation proposals 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 panellists, presenters and moderators.
