EOF, Amsterdam, May - Call for Presentations

[apologies for duplicates, hint: they have the same message-id]

Hi Network Operations Folk,

NOW is the time to consider making a presentation at the European Operators 
Forum (EOF) to be held during the 48th RIPE meeting in Amsterdam on 
Monday 3rd and Tuesday 4th of May 2004.

We would like to have as many practical, hands-on presentations
as possible this time. Remember: They do not have to be long. 
We prefer an stand-up interesting 10 minute presentation over 
a well prepared 90 minutes explanation of something not so 
interesting to operators.

Find some information about presenting below and think about all
those experiences this year that might be interesting to 
other operators.

Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by
e-mail at any time.

Guidelines for submitting abstracts:

We expect to finalise the program in shortly.  We will get back to you
then with scheduling details.  In the meantime please provide the
information below.  We place special emphasis on the abstract which
should contain references to related material already available if
possible.  Please send this to eof-coord at-sign 

        - Author(s)
        - Speaker
        - (Working) Title 
        - Abstract
        - Draft Presentation (if available)
        - Relation to other known work and/or presentations if known
        - Time Requested

It would be helpful if the abstract was written such that potential
attenders will learn what to expect from the presentation, i.e.

"The presentation will describe our experiences with the
Red Packet Washer (  We have been using the
device for half a year now.  It helps us deliver more hygienic datagrams
to our customers and peers.  We will discuss problems with packet   
discolouring as well as increased throughput to our upstreams due to
decreased clogging by dirty micrograms.  We will compare performance
with the hand-scrubbing of packets which we used previously.  Currently
we are optimising device management and getting bugs resolved.  We will
strive to include the latest experiences in our report."

is much better than

"The presentation will describe the Red Packet Washer made by
Network Detergents."
