Call for Presentations
A RIPE Meeting is an open event where Internet Service Providers, network operators and other interested parties get
together. Although the meeting is mostly technical, it is also a chance for people to meet and network with others in
RIPE 68 will take place from 12 – 16 May 2014 in Warsaw, Poland.
The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the RIPE community for the plenary session
presentations, BoFs (Birds of a Feather sessions), panels, workshops, tutorials and lightning talks at RIPE 68. The
PC is looking for presentations covering topics of network engineering and operations, including but not limited to:
• IPv6 deployment
• Managing IPv4 scarcity in operations
• Commercial transactions of IPv4 addresses
• Data centre technologies
• Network and DNS operations
• Internet governance and regulatory practices
• Network and routing security
• Content delivery
• Internet peering and mobile data exchange
RIPE Meeting attendees are quite sensitive to keeping presentations non-commercial, and product marketing talks are
strongly discouraged. Repeated audience feedback shows that the most successful talks focus on operational
experience, research results, or case studies. For example, presenters wishing to describe a commercial solution
should focus on the underlying technology and not attempt a product demonstration.
The RIPE PC accepts proposals for different presentation formats, including plenary session presentations, tutorials,
workshops, BoFs (Birds of a Feather sessions) and lightning talks. See the full descriptions of these formats at
Presenters who are proposing a panel or BoF are encouraged to include speakers from several (perhaps even competing)
companies and/or a neutral facilitator.
In addition to presentations selected in advance for the plenary, the RIPE PC also offers several time slots for
“lightning talks”, which are selected immediately before or during the conference.
The following general requirements apply:
- Proposals for plenary session presentations, BoFs, panels, workshops and tutorials must be submitted for full
consideration no later than 2 March 2014, using the meeting submission system at
https://ripe68.ripe.net/submit-topic/guidelines/. Proposals submitted after this date will be considered on a
- Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission system
(https://ripe68.ripe.net/submit-topic/submission-form/) and can be submitted just days before the RIPE Meeting starts
or even during the meeting week. The allocation of lightning talk slots will be announced in short notice – in some
cases on the same day but often one day prior to the relevant session.
- Presenters should indicate how much time they will require.
See more information on time slot allocations per presentation format at
- Proposals for talks will only be considered by the PC if they contain at least draft presentation slides (slides
may be updated later on). For panels, proposals must contain a clear description, as well as the names of invited
panelists, presenters and moderators.
- Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not all, presenters/panelists will be physically
present at the RIPE Meeting.
If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions, please email pc [at] ripe [dot] net.
