DENOG 1 - Call for Participation and Papers

The first meeting of the German Network Operators Group (DENOG) will be
held in Frankfurt, Germany on the 5th of November 2009. We are pleased
to hereby invite applications for presentations or short lightning talks
to be held at this inaugural event.

General Information
DENOG is a community for professionals within Germany who are operating,
designing or researching the Internet. It provides a technical forum
where those working on, with and for the Internet can come together to
solve problems with every aspect of their (net)work.

The inaugural meeting is designed to provide an opportunity for the
exchange of information among network operators, engineers, researchers
and other professionals close to the network community.

presentations or presentations whose subject falls outside of the topics
below are also welcome; please do not hesitate to submit them.

All around your peering experience. Why are you doing it? How are you
doing it? Have you written any useful tools which others might find

Topic #3: ISP BOF
Duration: 90 minutes

"All things ISP". From Network/SLA Management (for or against it), abuse
handling and log systems to data centre layout and planning (including
power and cooling), everything that is interesting to you as an ISP can
be presented or discussed within this topic.

Topic #4: DENOG Organisational Matters
Duration: 60 minutes, no papers necessary

In this session we will discuss how to proceed with DENOG and potential
future meetings. We will present our ideas and eagerly await your own
ideas, feedback and comments.

Submission Guidelines
All submissions must have a strong technical bias and must not be solely
promotional for your employer. To appeal to an international audience we
ask you to produce your slides in English, but the presentation itself
can be in either German or English.

Please remember that your presentations should be suitable for a target
audience of technicians from varied backgrounds, working for companies
whose sizes vary considerably.

* a working email address
* the name and number of the topic which will contain the presentation
