accepted September 16 through October 1, 2006.

The voting mechanism is designed to ensure that each registered
voter casts only one ballot. To respect privacy and protect
confidentiality, the identity of the voter and the choices made on
the ballot will be decoupled so there is not a way to know who
voted for whom. To vote you will need a NANOG username and
2006 Program Committee nominations will be accepted October 3
through October 11, 2006. To nominate a PC candidate, send the
nominee's name and email address with a brief statement supporting
