The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold
its 34th meeting May 15-17, 2005, in Seattle, Washington. The
meeting will be hosted by Switch and Data and held at the Westin

NANOG conferences provide a forum for information exchange
among network operators, engineers, and researchers.  Meetings
are held three times each year, and include presentations,
tutorial sessions, and BOFs. The meetings are informal, with
an emphasis on relevance to current engineering practices.

NANOG solicits presentations highlighting issues relating to
technology already deployed or soon to be deployed in the
Internet.  Vendors are encouraged to work with operators to
present deployment experiences with the vendor's products and

The community is invited to present talks or tutorials on:

  - VOIP architectures and deployment
  - Peering/collocation coordination issues
  - Security attacks/mitigation, tools, and analysis
  - Content provider issues
  - MSO IPTV deployment and operations
  - Backbone operational case studies
  - Exchange point technologies and implementation
  - Non-telco, last-mile technologies (metro/rural, broadband,
    radio, and optical)
  - Implementation experience with Ethernet, e.g., TLS, VPLS,
    Ethernet private line, and VPWS.
  - Wavelength use by enterprises
  - Large-scale wireless deployment
  - Experiences with native IPv6 transport rollout
  - State of OAM tools for IP and MPLS networks
  - Options for blackhole and discard routing
  - BGP/MPLS layer 3 VPNs
  - Other interesting network technologies

Topics for short (10-20 minute) lightning talks will be
solicited on-site in Seattle.

Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute) summaries
of their work for operator feedback. Topics include routing,
network performance, statistical measurement and analysis, and
protocol development and implementation. Studies presented may be
works in progress. Researchers from academia, government, and
industry are encouraged to present.

How to Present
Submit an abstract and draft slides for the presentation in
email to nanog-support at See for  submission
guidelines. The deadline for abstracts and slides is April 4,
2005. While the majority of speaking slots will be filled by
April 4, a limited number of slots may be available after that
date for topics that are exceptionally timely, important, or
critical to the operations of the Internet. Submissions will be
reviewed by the NANOG Program Committee, and presenters will be
notified of acceptance by April 18. Final drafts of presentation
slides are due by May 4, and final versions May 11.
