NZNOG 2012 - Call for Participation and Papers
The next conference of the New Zealand Network Operators' Group is to be
held in Christchurch, New Zealand between 23/25 January and 27 January 2012.
The conference will run across the 26th and 27th of January and as always
will include leading speakers in the field of Internet operations from New
Zealand and much farther afield. Training workshops and tutorials will
precede the conference and run from the 23rd to the 25th of January.
The annual conference, workshops and tutorials are a once a year chance for
individuals and organisations involved in Internet operations to meet
and share the latest in Internet operations, technologies practices and
receive high quality training. The event is unique in New Zealand and
attracts technical, skilled individuals with a genuine interest in Internet
operations and Internetworking technologies.
The conference is low priced and has a strong technical focus with the
aim and history of getting a strong turnout of technical personal from
New Zealand Internet orientated companies.
NZNOG 2012 will consist of up to three days of workshops and tutorials
followed by two days of conference presentations. There will also be
opportunity for more informal and small lightening talks. These are
typically around five minutes long and are organised closer to the

NZNOG 2012 Conference: 23/25-27 January 2012
SIG / Miniconf / Tutorials / Workshops
In previous years we have had three day workshops and a day of tutorials,
this year we are looking to repeat this if we can get the submissions.
Examples of past activities workshops include 'MPLS and fixed access
networks for beginners', 'Mikrotik RouterOS Training', 'APNIC Internet
Resource Management Essentials', and a System Administrators
mini-conference which included talks on 'Using Debian packages for
system administration' and '42 hosts in 1U: Using virtual machines'.
The main conference program for 2012 will be made up of two days with a
single stream where possible. Presentations don't need to fit any particular
fixed length and can be from 30 minutes to 3 hours in length.
NZNOG conferences have traditionally spanned the entire operational
spectrum, and then some. Proposals for conference presentations are invited
for virtually any topic with a degree of relevance to the NZNOG community.
If we get enough talks that centre around 'Network operations during an
emergency', or 'holy crap! how did the operations community do after that
quake? What can we do better?', or similar we will make that a bit of a

If you are interested in submitting a talk please fill out the questions
at then end of this document and email them email@example.com
When considering a presentation or SIG, remember that the NZNOG audience
is mainly comprised of technical network operators and engineers with a wide
range of experience levels from beginners to multi-year experience. There is
a strong orientation to offer core skills and basic knowledge in the SIGs
and to address issues relevant to the day-to-day operations of ISPs and
network operators in the conference sessions.
The inclusion of a title, bio, topic, abstract, and slides with proposals
is not compulsory but each will help us determine the quality of your
proposal and increase the likelihood it will be accepted.
Final slides are to be provided by 15 January 2012.
Note: While the majority of speaking slots will be submitted by 15
December 2011, a limited number of slots may be available for presentations
that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational
The NZNOG conference is a TECHNICAL conference so marketing and commercial
content is NOT allowed within the program. The program committee is charged
with maintaining the technical standard of NZNOG conferences, and will
therefore not accept inappropriate materials. It is expected that the
presenter be a technical person and not a sales or marketing person. The
audience is extremely technical and unforgiving, and expects that the
speakers are themselves very knowledgeable. All sessions provide time for
questions, so presenters should expect technical questions and be prepared
to deliver insightful and technically deep responses.
Funding and Support
NZNOG conferences are community run and funded events that try to keep the
cost to attendees as low as possible so generally we are unable to pay the
travel costs of speakers. There is a limited amount of funding available to
Conference presenters will not have to pay any registration fee for the day
they are presenting. Discounts for SIG and lightning talk presenters may
be available but are not automatic.
Lightning talks are short talks/presentations that last no more than 10
minutes. This is a good opportunity to get your pet topic out there or
perhaps to get some experience with presenting without having to go to a
full talk. At NZNOG 2012 it is planned that there will be at least one
hour long lightning talk session.
There are opportunities remaining for organisations to sponsor various
aspects of the NZNOG meeting.

email email@example.com along with the requested information. Questions
regarding talks can be sent to the same address.
Sponsorship may be available for a limited number of overseas speakers

with travel and/or accommodation.
