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 20-minute presentation followed by a 5-minute Q&A period.

Notification of Accepted Presentations

The MENOG PC will confirm whether your presentation proposal is accepted by 17 September 2012. Late submissions that 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.
