Are you an experienced network operator willing to share your expertise and unique insight with peers in the Middle East? Or do you have a great idea or new concept you’d like to share with your colleagues?
MENOG 14 takes place from 23 March to 1 April 2014 in Dubai.
The programme includes workshops (23-27 March), a plenary conference (30 March), MENOG Peering Forum (31 March) and technical tutorials (1 April).
The MENOG Programme Committee (PC) is seeking submissions from network operators, researchers, and technology specialists in the Middle East to teach a technical tutorial or lead a workshop and/or give a technical presentation during the conference.
Potential topic areas could include:
- IPv6 deployment
- HTTP and non-HTTP content filtering; anti-spam

- NREN (National Research and Education Networks)
- ISP operations, peering and Internet Exchange Points
- ISP network security
- Data centres, applications and services
- DNS and DNSsec
- IP Address Management
If you would like to participate in the MENOG 14 programme, please submit your proposal AND draft slides to our submission system for review.
Guidelines for Submissions:
- When considering a presentation or tutorial, remember that the MENOG audience is mainly comprised of technical network operators and engineers with varying experience levels.
- Tutorials should focus on teaching core skills and basic knowledge.
A tutorial session is 90 minutes long.
- Conference presentations should address issues that ISPs and network operators could face over the next 12-18 months in their day-to-day operations. Conference presenters should plan for a 25-minute presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A period.
- Please note that marketing/commercial content will not be considered. The presenter should come from a technical background, not sales or marketing.
Deadline and Notification of Accepted Presentations:
The deadline to submit is 23 February 2014.
The MENOG PC (Program Committee) will confirm whether your presentation proposal is accepted before 1 March 2014.
Late submissions, provided they are exceptionally timely or of critical operational importance, will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
Funding and Support:
MENOG is a not-for-profit event that aims to keep the cost of attending as low as possible for attendees. For this reason, MENOG is unable to subsidise the cost of travel for speakers.
