AusNOG 2021 Call For Presentations

AusNOG 2021 will be held 'IN PERSON' on the 2nd and 3rd of September at the Fullerton Sydney

As usual we are making a call for people to submit proposals for talks at AusNOG 2021 that would be of interest to the Internet operations community, ie technical presentations and not sales talks.

Previous feedback from attendees has strongly suggested that AusNOG participants prefer to hear from operators. So, we are especially interested in operators who can share what they know! (for example, sharing experiences about COVID-19 impacts, deployments, or other things that truely impact operations).

Notes to Presenters

Preference will be given to controversial/thought-provoking or technological advancement 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 minute presentations. There will be a call for lightning talks (5 minutes) closer to the event.

By submitting a presentation for consideration in the AusNOG 2021 programme, and if selected the presenter will allow AusNOG to:

  • Take photographs of the presentation and presenter
  • Record and rebroadcast video and audio of the presentation and presenter
  • 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].

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