The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 29th
meeting October 19-21, 2003, at the Chicago Marriott Downtown Hotel. This
will be NANOG's second joint meeting with ARIN, the American Registry for
Internet Numbers (www.arin.net).  NANOG will meet from Sunday to Tuesday,
and ARIN from Wednesday to Friday, October 22-24. Registration opens
September 2.

NANOG conferences provide a forum for the coordination and dissemination
of technical information related to backbone/enterprise networking
technologies and operational practices.  Meetings are held three times
each year, and include two days of short presentations, plus
afternoon/evening tutorial sessions. The meetings are informal, with an
emphasis on relevance to current backbone engineering practices. NANOG
conferences draw over 350 participants, mainly consisting of engineering
staff from national service providers, and members of the research and
education community.

CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS

NANOG invites presentations on backbone/enterprise engineering,
coordination, and research topics. Presentations should highlight issues
relating to technology already deployed or soon to be deployed in core
Internet backbones and exchange points. Vendors are encouraged to work
with operators to present deployment experiences with the vendor's
products.

Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute) summaries of their
work for operator feedback. Topics include routing, network performance,
statistical measurement and analysis, and protocol development and
implementation. Studies presented may be works in progress. Researchers
from academia, government, and industry are encouraged to present.

The community is invited to present talks on:

   -- Survey of open-source/commercial network management systems
   -- Operator experience/how-to's on building packet-switched networks 
      (e.g., IP or MPLS) that can carry:

      - TDM
      - Layer 2 (e.g., Frame Relay and ATM)
      - IP services
      - Emerging services such as the Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS). 

   -- Operator case studies on:

        - Integration with optical control planes (GMPLS, ASON, etc.),
          voice (enterprise, Class 4 and Class 5), and video
        - Provisioning and automation 
        - Enterprise network security, management, and route control
        - Network troubleshooting and problems solved
  
   -- Experience with active DoS retaliation methods, e.g., reverse port
      scanning.
   -- Implementation and use of measurement technologies in vendor devices

Other potential topics include:

   -- Backbone traffic engineering 
   -- Impact of BGP dynamics on backbone traffic patterns
   -- Route processor architecture
   -- Large-scale wireless deployment
   -- Building large-scale measurement infrastructure 
   -- Inter-domain multicast deployment 

NANOG also welcomes suggestions/recommendations for tutorials, panels, and
other presentation topics.

HOW TO PRESENT

Submit a detailed abstract or outline describing the presentation in email
to nanog-support@nanog.org.  The deadline for proposals is September 8,
2003.  While the majority of speaking slots will be filled by September 8,
a limited number of slots will be available after that date for topics
that are exceptionally timely and important. Submissions will be reviewed
by the NANOG Program Committee, and presenters will be notified of
acceptance by September 22. Final drafts of presentation slides are due by
October 8, and final versions October 15.
