Yes it's that time of year again!

For people who may have missed the change of venue AusNOG 2018 will now
be at the Westin Hotel in Sydney on August 30 and 31.

As per previous years we are making a call for people to submit
proposals for talks at AusNOG 2018 that would be of interest to the
Internet operations community, ie technical and not sales talks.

Previous feedback has suggested that participants would like to see more
talks from operators so we are especially looking for operators to step
up (for example, sharing experiences about the nbn).

Notes to presenters

Preference will be given to presentations that result in actual
operational outcomes.

Speaking slots are typically 30 minutes, including Q&A time, although we
can accommodate a limited number of requests for 45/60 minute slots. We
would also entertain requests for 15 minutes. There will be a call for
lightning talks (5 minutes) closer to the event.

By submitting a presentation for consideration in the AusNOG 2018
programme, and if selected the presenter will allow AusNOG to:

  1. Take photographs of the presentation and presenter
  2. Record and rebroadcast video and audio of the presentation and
  3. Redistribute the presentation slides, audio, video, and photographs
    electronically, on the AusNOG website, or otherwise but leaving
    all intellectual property in the hands of presenter or rightful
    property holder[1].

Presenters receive complimentary registration while those not selected
will be offered registration at the early bird rate.

(max 300 words), and presenter biography (max 150 words)
