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 69 will take place from 3- November 2014 in London, UK.
The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the
RIPE community for the plenary session presentations, BoFs (Birds of a
Feather sessions), panels, workshops, tutorials and lightning talks at RIPE
69. 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
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.
The RIPE PC accepts proposals for different presentation formats, including
plenary session presentations, tutorials, workshops, BoFs (Birds of a
Feather sessions) and lightning talks. See the full descriptions of these
Presenters who are proposing a panel or BoF are encouraged to include
speakers from several (perhaps even competing) companies and/or a neutral
In addition to presentations selected in advance for the plenary, the RIPE
PC also offers several time slots for “lightning talks”, which are selected
immediately before or during the conference.
The following general requirements apply:
- Proposals for plenary session presentations, BoFs, panels, workshops and
tutorials must be submitted for full consideration no later than 31 August
2014, using the meeting submission system at
https://ripe69.ripe.net/submit-topic/guidelines/. Proposals submitted after
this date will be considered on a space-available basis.
- Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission
system (https://ripe69.ripe.net/submit-topic/submission-form/) and can be
submitted just days before the RIPE Meeting starts or even during the
meeting week. The allocation of lightning talk slots will be announced in
short notice – in some cases on the same day but often one day prior to the
- Presenters should indicate how much time they will require.
See more information on time slot allocations per presentation format at
- Proposals for talks 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 panelists, presenters and moderators.
- Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not all,
presenters/panelists will be physically present at the RIPE Meeting.
If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions,
please email pc [at] ripe [dot] net.
