*Fresh off of a great NANOG 57 in Orlando, your program committee is
already working hard to provide a world-class program for NANOG 58 in NOLA

The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 58th
meeting in New Orleans on June 3rd - 5th, 2013 Verizon Terremark will
host NANOG 58. The NANOG Program Committee is now seeking proposals for
presentations, panels, tutorials, tracks sessions, keynote materials, and
the NOGLab experience for the NANOG 58 program. We invite presentations
highlighting issues relating to technology already deployed or soon-to-be
deployed in the Internet. Vendors are encouraged to work with operators to
present real-world deployment experiences with the vendor's products and
interoperability via the program and as part of the NOGLab. NANOG 58
submissions are welcome at http://pc.nanog.org.
NANOG is the premier meeting for network operators in North America.
Meetings provide a forum for information exchange among network operators,
engineers, and researchers. NANOG meets three times each year, and includes
panels, presentations, tutorial sessions, tracks, informal BOFs, and a
NOGLab which features interoperability demonstrations. NANOG attendees
include operators from networks of all sizes, enterprise operators, peering
coordinators, transport and switching equipment vendors, and network
researchers. NANOG attendees will share ideas and interact with leaders in
the field of network operations, discuss current operational events and
issues, and learn about state-of-the-art operational techniques.
Materials from NANOG 58 will be archived at:

Keynote Presentation: The Program Committee invites speakers to submit
materials for up to one-hour keynote presentations. Speakers should
indicate that their submission is for a keynote in their abstracts. Speaker
must submit slides for a Keynote Presentation.
General Session Talk: A General Session presentation should be on a
topic of interest to the general NANOG audience, and may be up to
30-minutes long (including time for Q&A). Speakers must submit slides for a
General Session presentation.
General Session Panel: Panels are 60-90-minute discussion sessions
between a moderator and a team of panelists. The panel moderator should
submit an abstract on the panel topic, a list of panelists, and how the
panel will be organized. Panel selection will be based on the importance,
originality, focus and timeliness of the topic, expertise of proposed
panelists, as well as the potential for informative and controversial
discussion. After acceptance the panel leader will be given the option to
invite panel authors to submit their presentations to the NANOG program
Committee for review. Until then authors should not submit their individual
presentations for the panel.
Tracks: Tracks are 90-minute informal agenda blocks on topics, which are
of interest to a portion of the NANOG community. The 90-minute block can be
subdivided into a number of smaller, highly related presentations, panels
or open discussion. A moderator coordinates content within the 90-minute
block of time, and must submit a detailed outline to the Program Committee,
including sub-topics and presenters
Typically two tracks or three tracks will be run concurrently.
Tutorials: Tutorials are 90-minute sessions. A presentation from the
introductory through advanced level on all related topics, including:
Disaster Recovery Planning
Best Practices for Determining Traffic Matrices
Options for Blackhole and Discard Routing
BGP/MPLS Layer 3 VPNs
Peering business and engineering basics
A tutorial submission should include an abstract and slides.
BOFs: BOFs (Birds of a Feather sessions) are informal sessions on
topics, which are of interest to a portion of the NANOG community. BOFs may
be held in the hallways, breakout areas or in an unscheduled tutorial room.
Requests for scheduled BOFs will be take place on site at the meeting.
A typical BOF session may include some structure or presentations, but
usually is focused on community discussion and interaction.
Frequent BOF topics include:
Hot-topics in the media
The less structured nature of BOF sessions allows for the greatest
flexibility from a timing perspective.
Lightning Talks: A lightning talk is a very short presentation or speech
by any attendee on any topic relevant to the NANOG audience. These are
limited to ten minutes; this will be strictly enforced.
If you have a topic that's timely, interesting, or even a crackpot idea
you want to share, we encourage you to consider presenting it. The Program
Committee will vote on all Lightning Talk submissions onsite at the
meeting, and a submitter will be notified about his or her submission one
day prior to the scheduled talk time.
Submit your lightning talk proposal at http://pc.nanog.org starting June
Research Forum: Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute)
summaries of their work for operator feedback. Topics include routing,
network performance, statistical measurement and analysis, and protocol
development and implementation. Studies presented may be works in progress.
Researchers from academia, government, and industry are encouraged to
