The next UKNOF meeting will take place on Thursday 11th October 2012
in London, and the Programme Committee are seeking content from the
community for this meeting.
You may often hear it said that UKNOF's remit is "distribution of
clue", so if the content of your talk fits with that ethos, we're
actually pretty open minded about what the actual topic is - as long
as it's relevant to our community's broad area of interest, and the
quality is good.
Talks are usually around 20 to 40 minutes in length, and common
subject areas are:
Network architecture and design
Networking hardware and software architecture
Peering and interconnect
Data centre design and operations
Network monitoring and measurement
New innovations in networking technology
Open protocol standards
Domain Name System infrastructure
Network security and abuse prevention
Impact of public policy of network operations
But, we're always on the lookout for something different, so don't
feel it has to fall into the areas above.
We're also interested in hearing proposals for panel discussions, as
these are a great way of presenting and discussing different views on
the same subject.
Please send your proposals to <firstname.lastname@example.org>, including a
short abstract of the subject, and draft slides if these are
The closing date for submissions is the 30th June 2012, but don't
worry if you miss the deadline and have something interesting to talk
about, as we are often able to accept shorter (10 minute) "lightning
talks" closer in to the meeting.
Please also get in touch if you would like to suggest any topics,
themes or speakers.
Please note that UKNOF is free to attend, thanks to the generosity of
our sponsors, and run on a non-profit (cost-recovery) basis, so is
therefore unable to reimburse speakers' expenses.
