UKNOF 24 Call For Presentations
The next UKNOF meeting will take place on 17th January 2013 at Timico
in Newark-on-Trent, Nottinghamshire, 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 submit your proposals via our website at
Submissions are welcome at any time, but for UKNOF24 we would like to
have them no later than 12th December 2012. However, 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 run on a non-profit basis, and is not in a
position to reimburse expenses or time for speakers at its meetings.
