         NZNOG 06 - Call for Participation and Papers

The next conference of the New Zealand Network Operators' Group is to
be held in Wellington, New Zealand between 22-24 March 2006. Our hosts
are The School of Mathematics, Statistics and Computer Science at Victoria
University. The conference will take place the week before the Wellington
ICANN meeting in order enable people to attend both events.

NZNOG meetings provide opportunities for the exchange of technical
information and discussion of issues relating to the operation and
support of network services, with particular emphasis on New Zealand.

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.

The planned format is one day of streamed Special Interest Group ( SIG )
Meetings followed by 2 days of the conference proper.


There are opportunities remaining for organisations to sponsor various
aspects of the NZNOG meeting.

Please contact for more information

SIG Meetings

The first day of the conference is arranged as parallel tracks to
cover subject material which is of interest to particular groups of
attendees. Proposals are requested for workshops, tutorials and other
appropriate special-interest meetings of interest to Network Operators.


NZNOG invites presentations on relevant topics. Suitable topics include,
but are not limited to Network Monitoring, Peering , Network Design
Philosophy, Security and Encryption, IPV6, DDOS, WAN Solutions / VPNs,
BGP and other routing protocols, ENUM, Fibre Optics, Wireless, Spam,
Mail Servers, Virtual Servers (eg Xen, UML, VMware). Presentations from
researchers and from practitioners are welcomed.

Presentations don't need to fit any particular fixed length and can be
from 30 minutes to 3 hours in length.

The survey of mailing list members was conducted in early 2005 to
determine areas of interest, the results are available here:

minutes. This is a good opportunity to get your pet topic out there or

full talk. At NZNOG'06 it is planned that there will be at least one
hour long lightning talk session.
