virtualUKNOF September 2020 Call For Presentations

The third virtualUKNOF will take place on 7 September (14:30 - 16:30 BST) in the ether, and the Programme Committee are seeking content from the community for this meeting.

You may often hear it said that UKNOF's remit is "distribution of clue", and for our second fully remote meeting, we are looking for content which is both operationally relevant in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and our 'normal' operational remit.

The whole session is planned for around 90-120 minutes and with this in mind, we are looking for 5-6 presentations which are around 15 minutes in length each with an additional 5 minutes for questions & discussion.

Topics within the wider subject areas below will be considered:

  • Network hardware/software/configuration architecture, design and operations
  • Network Automation and Tooling inc SDN, Open Source initiatives
  • Peering and interconnection / routing.
  • Data centre design and operations
  • IPv6 deployment
  • Open protocol standards and best practise initatives
  • Domain Name System infrastructure
  • Personal/Network security, inclusivness and abuse prevention
  • Impact of public policy of network operations
  • Confessions & War Stories / Lessons learnt from the field

Please submit your proposals using the menu on the left. Submissions are welcome at any time, but for virtualUKNOF September 2020 we would like to have them no later than 21 August 2020 (and we are hoping to publish an initial set of accepted talks so do get your talks in by 2nd August if you wish to be included in that).

If you had a talk accepted for UKNOF 46 and would like to move it to the September virtual meeting please drop us a note via pc@uknof.org.uk

Our expected timeline is:

  • 17 July Submissions open via Indio
  • 7 August 2020 - Initial Contribution list published
  • 21 August 2020 - Deadline for submission (23:59 BST)
  • 24 August 2020 - Full agenda published
  • 2 September 2020 - Deadline for slideset submission
  • 7 September 2020 - Meeting

Information for speakers about presenting and what to expect at UKNOF is available at https://wiki.uknof.org.uk/Speaker_Information

Additional information for speakers of virtualUKNOF:

  • your talk will be live broadcast and recorded for future reference
  • your presentation slides will be available for delegates and others to download and refer to, before, during and after the meeting
  • you will be expected to attend a rehearsal some time in the two weeks running up to the workshop. We will work with all accepted speakers on a convenient time for all. It would be very useful to have your slides (even if draft) ready for this.
