    Call for Presentations

    A RIPE Meeting is an open event where Internet Service
    Providers, network operators and other interested parties get
    together.  Although the meeting is mostly technical, it is
    also a chance for people to meet and network with others in
    their field.

    *RIPE 80 will take place from 11-15 May in Berlin, Germany*

    The RIPE Programme Committee (PC) is now seeking content
    proposals from the RIPE community for the plenary sessions,
    BoFs (Birds of a Feather sessions), panels, workshops,
    tutorials and lightning talks at RIPE 80. See the full
    descriptions of the different presentation formats:

    Proposals for plenary sessions, BoFs, panels, workshops and
    tutorials must be submitted for full consideration no later
    than *23 February 2020*. Proposals submitted after this date
    will be considered depending on the slots still available in
    the programme.

    The PC is looking for presentations covering the topics of
    network engineering and operations, including but not limited
    - IPv6 deployment
    - Managing IPv4 scarcity
    - Data centre technologies
    - Network and DNS operations
    - Internet governance and regulatory practices
    - Network and routing security
    - Content delivery
    - Internet peering and mobile data exchange
    - Connected Things (aka. Internet of Things - IoT)

    Presenters, RIPE Working Group Chairs and the RIPE Programme
    Committee are required to cover their own costs to attend a
    RIPE Meeting (meeting ticket, travel and accommodation).  We
    have various ticket options available depending on your
    Please note that participants can apply for a RIPE Fellowship
    or RACI, on an individual basis, to develop their
    professional or academic career.

    For more information, please visit:

    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 demonstration.

    Presenters should indicate how much time they will require.
    In general, the time allocated for the different presentation
    formats is as follows:
    - Plenary presentations: 20-25 minutes presentation with 5-10
    minutes discussion
    - Tutorials: up to two hours (Monday morning)
    - Workshops: one hour (during evening sessions) to two hours
    (Monday morning)
    - 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, https://ripe80.ripe.net/submit-topic/
    - Lightning talks should also be submitted using the meeting
    submission system (https://ripe80.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.
