Call for Presentations

The CAPIF 1 will take place on 16 and 17 November 2022, Almaty, Kazakhstan

The RIPE NCC is now seeking content proposals from the community for the plenary session presentations, panels and lightning talks at the CAPIF 1. We are looking for submissions covering network engineering and operations, especially but not limited to:

  • IPv6 deployment
  • Efforts to establish IXPs in the region
  • Reports from existing IXPs
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Regional success stories

Other topics of interest:

  • Managing IPv4 scarcity in operations
  • Network migrations from IPv4 to IPv6
  • Commercial transactions of IPv4 addresses
  • 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



Submissions for the CAPIF 1 should be 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 - principles, algorithms, protocols, configuration, etc., rather than performing a full product demonstration.

Your proposals for plenary sessions must be submitted no later than 17 October 2022, using the presentation submission system.

Submit your presentation

Proposals submitted after this date will be considered on a space-available basis.

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, we also offer time slots for “lightning talks”, which are selected immediately before or during the conference.

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 RIPE NCC 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 panellists, presenters and moderators.
  • Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not all, presenters/panellists will be physically present at the CAPIF 1

If you have any questions or requests concerning content submissions, please email regional _at_ ripe _dot_ net.
