Call for Presentations

The eighth South East European / RIPE NCC Regional Meeting (SEE 8) will take place from 16-17 April 2019 in Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The SEE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the community for the plenary session presentations, panels, workshops and lightning talks at SEE 8. The PC is 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 SEE 8 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.

The first Call for Presentations (CfP) deadline has passed. The SEE PC has issued a second CfP: proposals for plenary sessions, BoFs, workshops and tutorials must be submitted no later than 17 March 2019, using the meeting submission system at:

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, the SEE PC also offers 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 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 8 Meeting.

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