OARC 39 will be a two-day hybrid meeting held on 22 & 23 October in Belgrade, Serbia at 10:00 AM (Local time - CEST (UTC+02:00)) The onsite part of the meeting will be colocated with RIPE 85.

The Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

  • Operations: Any operational gotchas, lessons learned from an outage, details/reasons for a recent outage (how to improve TTR, tooling).
  • Deployment: DNS config management and release process.
  • Monitoring: Log ingestion pipeline, analytics infrastructure, anomaly detection.
  • Scaling: DNS performance management and metrics. Increasing DNS Server Efficiency
  • Security/Privacy: DNSSEC signing and validation, key storage, rollovers, qname minimization, DoH/DoT

As it is a hybrid workshop, we’d like to encourage brevity; presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes (with additional time for questions).
