The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold
its 34th meeting May 15-17, 2005, in Seattle, Washington. The
meeting will be hosted by Switch and Data and held at the Westin

NANOG conferences provide a forum for information exchange
among network operators, engineers, and researchers. Meetings
are held three times each year, and include presentations,
tutorial sessions, and BOFs. The meetings are informal, with
an emphasis on relevance to current engineering practices.

NANOG solicits presentations highlighting issues relating to
technology already deployed or soon to be deployed in the
Internet. Vendors are encouraged to work with operators to
present deployment experiences with the vendor's products and

The community is invited to present talks or tutorials on:

  - VOIP architectures and deployment
  - Peering/collocation coordination issues
  - Security attacks/mitigation, tools, and analysis
  - Content provider issues
  - MSO IPTV deployment and operations
  - Backbone operational case studies
  - Exchange point technologies and implementation
  - Non-telco, last-mile technologies (metro/rural, broadband,
    radio, and optical)
  - Implementation experience with Ethernet, e.g., TLS, VPLS,
    Ethernet private line, and VPWS.
  - Wavelength use by enterprises
  - Large-scale wireless deployment
  - Experiences with native IPv6 transport rollout
  - State of OAM tools for IP and MPLS networks

Topics for short (10-20 minute) lightning talks will be
solicited on-site in Seattle.

Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute) summaries
of their work for operator feedback. Topics include routing,
network performance, statistical measurement and analysis, and
protocol development and implementation. Studies presented may be
works in progress. Researchers from academia, government, and
industry are encouraged to present.
