NANOG Community,

The NANOG Program Committee (PC) would like to remind you they are
accepting proposals for in-person or remote presentations at all sessions
of NANOG 83, our first hybrid meeting, taking place in Minneapolis, MN on
November 1st-3rd, 2021. Below is a summary of key details and dates from
the Call For Presentations on the NANOG website, which can be found at

Don’t wait! Presentation abstracts and draft slides should be submitted no
later than Monday, September 27, 2021. Given by many of the industry’s top
minds, presentations at NANOG meetings are meant to spark the imagination,
encourage dialog, and drive new solutions to our greatest networking
challenges. Presentations may cover current technologies, soon-to-be
deployed technologies, and industry innovation. Vendors are welcome to
submit talks which cover relevant technologies and capabilities, but
presentations should not be promotional, or discuss proprietary solutions.

The primary speaker, moderator, or author should submit a presentation
proposal and abstract via the Program Committee Tool at:


   Sign in with your Profile Account

   Select the type of talk you propose to present, and complete the form

Timeline for submission and proposal review:


   Submitter enters abstract (and draft slides if possible) in the Program
   Committee Tool prior to the deadline for slide submission.

   PC performs initial review and assigns a “shepherd” to help develop the
   submission — typically within 2 weeks.

   Submitter develops draft slides of talk if not already submitted with
   the initial proposal. Please submit initial draft slides early — the PC
   does not evaluate submissions until draft slides are available for review.
   NANOG Staff is available to assist with slide templates upon request from
   the submitter.

   Panel and Track submissions should provide a topic list and
   intended/confirmed participants in the abstract.

   PC reviews the slides and continues to work with Submitter as needed to
   develop the topic.

   FINAL SUBMISSION DEADLINE Draft presentation slides should be submitted
   prior to the published deadline for slides (September 27, 2021).

   PC evaluates submissions to determine presentations for the agenda
   (posted on October 18, 2021).

   Agenda assembled and posted.

   Submitters notified.

   Final presentation slides must be submitted prior to the published
   deadline for slides (October 4, 2021 for Pre-recordings and October 22,
   2021 for in-person presentations).

If you think you have an interesting topic but want feedback or suggestions
for developing an idea into a presentation, please email the PC (
nanogpc at, and a representative will respond to you in a timely
manner. Otherwise, submit your talk, keynote, track, or panel proposal to
the Program Committee Tool at your earliest convenience. We look forward to
reviewing your submission!
