NANOG Community,

The NANOG Program Committee (PC) is excited to announce that we are now
accepting proposals for all sessions at NANOG 78 in San Francisco,
California, February 10-12, 2020. Below is a summary of key details and
dates from the Call For Presentations on the NANOG website, which can be
found at https://www.nanog.org/meetings/nanog-78/submit-presentation/

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. The PC is currently
seeking proposals, and also welcomes suggestions for speakers and topics.
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 title
   and abstract

Timeline for submission and proposal review:


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

   PC performs initial review and assigns a “shepherd” to help develop the
   submission — 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.

   Draft presentation slides should be submitted prior to the published
   deadline for slides (Dec. 30, 2019).

   PC evaluates submissions to determine presentations for the agenda
   (posted on Jan. 27, 2020).

   Agenda assembled and posted.

   Submitters notified.

   Final presentation slides must be submitted prior to the published
   deadline for slides (Feb. 3, 2020).

If you think you have an interesting topic but want feedback or suggestions
for developing an idea into a presentation, please email the PC (
nanogpc at nanog.org), 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!
