Call for Presentations

A RIPE Meeting is an open event where Internet Service Providers,

In extraordinary circumstances, the RIPE Chair can waive the meeting
fee for presenters. These requests are dealt with on a case-by-case
basis via pc at ripe.net.


Presenters should be clear on whether they wish to submit a
presentation for a plenary or working group (WG) session. At present,
most working groups will solicit policy proposals, discussion points or
other content directly via their mailing lists. If you’re not sure what
kind of session you should be presenting at, please visit:

RIPE Meeting attendees are quite sensitive to keeping presentations
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 and should not attempt a product

Presenters should indicate how much time they will require. In general,
the time allocated for the different presentation formats is as
- Plenary presentations: 20-25 minutes presentation with 5-10 minutes
- Tutorials: up to two hours (Monday morning)
- Workshops: one hour (during evening sessions) to two hours (Monday
- BoFs: approximately one hour (during evening sessions)
- Lightning talks: 10 minutes in total for both the presentation and
any discussion

The following general requirements apply:

- Proposals must be submitted using the meeting submission system,

- Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting submission
system (https://ripe79.ripe.net/submit-topic/) and can be submitted any
time up to and including the meeting week. The allocation of lightning
talks will be announced on short notice, in some cases on the same day
but often one day prior to the time slot allocated.

- Presenters who propose a panel or BoF are encouraged to include
speakers from several (perhaps even competing) companies and/or a
neutral facilitator.

- All presentation proposals will only be considered by the PC if they
contain at least draft presentation slides (slides may be updated later
on). For panels, proposals must contain a clear description, as well as
the names of invited panellists, presenters and moderators.
