Call for Presentations

The MENOG 19 Meeting & Peering Forum will take place from 3-4 April 2019 in Beirut, Lebanon.
The MENOG Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content proposals from the community for the plenary session presentations, panels and lightning talks at MENOG 19. The PC is looking for submissions covering network engineering and operations, especially but not limited to:

  • IPv6 deployment
  • Peering and Interconnection in the Region
  • Mobile technology evolution
  • 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
  • Content delivery
  • Network monitoring and measurements
  • Network management and automation
  • Network and routing security
  • Network and DNS operations
  • Internet governance technical discussions and regulatory practices


Submissions for MENOG 19 Meeting & Peering Forum 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.

Proposals for presentations and panel sessions must be submitted using the meeting submission system.

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 MENOG 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 panellists, presenters and moderators.
  • Due to potential technical issues, it is expected that most, if not all, presenters/panellists will be physically present at MENOG 19.
