Call for Presentations

Are you an experienced network operator willing to share your expertise with your peers in South East Europe?

The South East Europe (SEE) Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the community for Plenary presentations, panels sessions, workshops and lightning talks at SEE 5, the fifth South East Europe/RIPE NCC Regional Meeting. Proposals are sought on topics 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
  • Efforts to establish IXPs in the region
  • Reports from existing IXPs
  • Regional success stories

Submit a Topic

Submissions 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 and not attempt a product demonstration.
For examples of previous presentations, see:

Presenters who are 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 are selected immediately before or during the conference.

The following general requirements apply:
Proposals should be submitted by 8 February 2016 at:

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

  • 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.
  • Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not all, presenters/panelists will be physically present at the SEE 5 Meeting.

SEE 5 will take place from 19–20 April 2016 in Tirana, Albania. The meeting is open to anyone and there is no cost to attend.
