Dear colleagues,

Following the past submission deadline here is an update from the RIPE PC:

A list of currently accepted RIPE 69 presentations will be published next
week and a separate note will be sent to the ripe-list once this is out.

There are still slots remaining for the final RIPE 69 programme and RIPE
Programme Committee will accept new proposals until 1 October 2014.

This is a last call deadline if you wish to submit a proposal.

Kind regards

Filiz Yilmaz
