Привет всем, кто тут еще есть!

Я несколько проспал с выполнением обязанностей члена RIPE PC, а меж тем на RIPE76 в Марселе (14-18 мая) давно идет прием докладов. Исправляюсь. Официальный Call for Presentations ниже.

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 76 will take place from 14-18 May in Marseille, France.

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 76.
See the full descriptions of the different presentation formats,

Proposals for plenary sessions, BoFs, panels, workshops and tutorials
must be submitted for full consideration no later than *11 March 2018*.
Proposals submitted after this date will be considered depending on the
remaining available space in the programme.

The PC is looking for presentations covering 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.

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@ripe.net. Also note that, on an individual basis, participants can apply for a RIPE Fellowship to develop their professional or academic career. For more information, please visit:


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:

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.

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 total for both presentation and any

The following general requirements apply:

- Proposals must be submitted using the meeting submission system,
- Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission
 system (https://ripe76.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
- 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.

If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions,
please email pc@ripe.net.
