A happy, prosperous and healthy 2004 to all of you! The first EOF of the year will take place on the 26th and 27th of January in Amsterdam. See http://www.ripe.net/ripe/meetings/ripe-47/meeting-plan.html . We are seeking presentations, specifically from network operators for this event. The time schedule is tight this time: Monday, January 12th: Definite Deadline for Submissions Thursday, January 15th: Publication of Preliminary Program Thursday, January 22nd: Publication of Final Progra This leaves little time to puzzle out the programme; thus it is very important that we receive complete abstracts this time. There will be little time for communicating back and forth. Obviously the earlier we receive your abstract the more time there will be to work out any details! To expedite things I have appended information about the format of abstracts here already. General information about the EOF and the kind of presentations that are appropriate can be found at http://www.ripe.net/ripe/meetings/ripe-46/eof-info.html . This also provides a link to previous programs. This time all RIPE working group chairs will be on the program committee which can be reached at <eof-coord at ripe.net>. >From suggestions we have already received I deduce that almost everything is done in XML these days. Maybe we will publish the program in XML as well. ;-) Daniel Karrenberg (Animateur EOF) ----- EOF Abstracts We place special emphasis on the abstract which should contain references to related material already available if possible. Please send this to <eof-coord at ripe.net>. - Author(s) - Speaker - (Working) Title - Abstract - Draft Presentation (if available) - Relation to other known work and/or presentations if known - Time Requested It would be helpful if the abstract was written such that potential attenders will learn what to expect from the presentation, i.e. "The presentation will describe our experiences with the Red Packet Washer (http://www.netdet.net/RPW/). We have been using the device for half a year now. It helps us deliver more hygienic datagrams to our customers and peers. We will discuss problems with packet discolouring as well as increased throughput to our upstreams due to decreased clogging by dirty micrograms. We will compare performance with the hand-scrubbing of packets which we used previously. Currently we are optimising device management and getting bugs resolved. We will strive to include the latest experiences in our report." is much better than "The presentation will describe the Red Packet Washer made by Network Detergents."
