Reminder to Submit Presentations for NANOG 84

NANOG Community,

The NANOG Program Committee (PC) would like to remind you they are accepting proposals for in-person or remote presentations at all sessions of NANOG 84, a hybrid meeting, taking place in Austin, TX on February 14th-16th, 2022. Below is a summary of key details and dates from the Call For Presentations on the NANOG website, which can be found at

Don’t wait! Presentation abstracts and draft slides should be submitted no later than Monday, January 10, 2022. Given by many of the industry’s top minds, presentations at NANOG meetings are meant to spark the imagination, encourage dialog, and drive new solutions to our greatest networking challenges. Presentations may cover current technologies, soon-to-be deployed technologies, and industry innovation. Vendors are welcome to submit talks which cover relevant technologies and capabilities, but presentations should not be promotional, or discuss proprietary solutions.

The primary speaker, moderator, or author should submit a presentation proposal and abstract via the Program Committee Tool at:

  • Sign in with your Profile Account

  • Select the type of talk you propose to present, and complete the form

Timeline for submission and proposal review:

  • Submitter enters abstract (and draft slides if possible) in the Program Committee Tool prior to the deadline for slide submission.

  • PC performs initial review and assigns a “shepherd” to help develop the submission — typically within 2 weeks.

  • Submitter develops draft slides of talk if not already submitted with the initial proposal. Please submit initial draft slides early — the PC does not evaluate submissions until draft slides are available for review. NANOG Staff is available to assist with slide templates upon request from the submitter.

  • Panel and Track submissions should provide a topic list and intended/confirmed participants in the abstract.

  • PC reviews the slides and continues to work with Submitter as needed to develop the topic.

  • FINAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE Draft presentation slides should be submitted prior to the published deadline for slides (January 10, 2022).

  • PC evaluates submissions to determine presentations for the agenda (posted on January 24, 2022).

  • Agenda assembled and posted.

  • Submitters notified.

  • Final presentation slides must be submitted prior to the published deadline for slides (January 28, 2022 for Remote/Pre-recordings and February 4, 2022 for in-person presentations).

If you think you have an interesting topic but want feedback or suggestions for developing an idea into a presentation, please email the PC (, and a representative will respond to you in a timely manner. Otherwise, submit your talk, keynote, track, or panel proposal to the Program Committee Tool at your earliest convenience. We look forward to reviewing your submission!
