Call for Presentations

The SEE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the community for the talks at SEE 12.

Submit your proposal for SEE 12

A RIPE NCC Access account is required.


We have now launched our second call for presentations. Proposals for plenary presentations, panels, lightning talks and workshops must be submitted by 1 March 2024.

We are looking for submissions covering network engineering and operations, including but not limited to:

  • IPv6 deployment
  • DNSsec
  • Routing and RPKI
  • Managing IPv4 scarcity in operations
  • Network migrations from IPv4 to IPv6
  • Data centre technologies
  • Network and DNS operations
  • Network monitoring and measurements
  • Network management and automation
  • Internet governance and regulatory practices
  • Network and routing security
  • Content delivery
  • Internet peering and mobile data exchange
  • Efforts to establish IXPs in the region
  • Reports from existing IXPs
  • Efforts to establish NOGs in the region
  • Reports from existing NOGs
  • Regional success stories
  • Community Development & Wellbeing 
  • Sustainability and Green Tech


Submissions should be non-commercial; 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 - principles, algorithms, protocols, configuration, etc., rather than performing a full product demonstration.

Examples of previous presentations can be found at:

Presenters proposing a panel 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 SEE PC also offers time slots for Lightning Talks, which may be submitted up to the date of the event.

The following general requirements apply:

  • Presenters should indicate how much time they will require. Usually, 30-minute slots are granted for plenary presentations and 60-minute slots for panels.
  • Proposals for talks will only be considered by the PC if they contain draft presentation slides (slides may be updated at a later date). For panels, proposals must contain a clear description, as well as the names of invited panelists, presenters and moderators.
  • We expect that most presenters/panellists will be physically present at the SEE 12 Meeting; however, virtual talks are accepted and encouraged.
  • You need to create a RIPE NCC Account to submit your presentation. You may also be prompted to enable multi-factor verification to add an extra layer of protection to your account.

You can expect to hear back from the PC on the outcome of the second call of presentations by 15 March 2024. If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions, please email [email protected].
