[lac-discuss-en] Call for Presentations RIPE 73 | Madrid, Spain | 24-28 Oct. 2016

Dear friends and colleagues,
This might be of interest to some.
Maritza -------- Forwarded Message -------- Call for Presentations A RIPE 
Meeting is an open event where Internet Service Providers, network operators 
and other interested parties get together.  Although the meeting is mostly 
technical, it is also a chance for people to meet and network with others in 
their field. RIPE 73 will take place from 24-28 October 2016 in Madrid, Spain. 
The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the 
RIPE community for the plenary sessions, BoFs (Birds of a Feather sessions), 
panels, workshops, tutorials and lightning talks at RIPE 73. See the full 
descriptions of the different presentation formats, 
https://ripe73.ripe.net/submit-topic/presentation-formats/. The PC is looking 
for presentations covering topics of network engineering and operations, 
including but not limited to: -          IPv6 deployment-          Managing 
IPv4 scarcity in operations-          Commercial transactions of IPv4 
addresses-          Data centre technologies-          Network and DNS 
operations-          Internet governance and regulatory practices-          
Network and routing security-          Content delivery-          Internet 
peering and mobile data exchange-          Internet of Things (IoT) Submissions 
RIPE Meeting attendees are quite sensitive to keeping presentations 
non-commercial, and product marketing talks are strongly discouraged.Repeated 
audience feedback shows that the most successful talks focus on operational 
experience, research results, or case studies.  For example, presenters wishing 
to describe a commercial solution should focus on the underlying technology and 
not attempt a product demonstration. Presenters should indicate how much time 
they will require.  In general, the time allocated for the different 
presentation formats is as follows: -          Plenary presentations: 20-25 
minutes presentation with 5-10 minutes discussion-          Tutorials: up to 
two hours (Monday morning)-          Workshops: one hour (during evening 
sessions) to two hours (Monday morning)-          BoFs: approximately one hour- 
         Lightning talks: 10 minutes The following general requirements apply: 
-          Proposals must be submitted using the meeting submission system, 
https://ripe73.ripe.net/submit-topic/submission-form/.-          Lightning 
talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission system 
(https://ripe73.ripe.net/submit-topic/submission-form/) and can be submitted 
any time up to and including the meeting week. The allocation of lightning 
talks will be announced on short notice---in some cases on the same day but 
often one day prior to the time slot allocated.-          Presenters who 
propose a panel or BoF are encouraged to include speakers from several (perhaps 
even competing) companies and/or a neutral facilitator.-          All 
presentation proposals will only be considered by the PC if they contain at 
least draft presentation slides (slides may be updated later on). For panels, 
proposals must contain a clear description, as well as the names of invited 
panellists, presenters and moderators.-          Due to potential technical 
issues, presenters/panellists should be physically present at the RIPE Meeting. 
If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions, please
