The APRICOT 2020 Program Committee (PC) is now seeking contributions for presentations and tutorials for the APRICOT 2020 conference.

The PC is looking for presenters who can:

  • Offer a technical tutorial on an appropriate topic
  • Participate in the technical conference sessions as a speaker
  • Convene and chair panel sessions of relevant topics
  • Lead informal Birds of Feather (BoF) break out sessions

Program material

The APRICOT conference program consists of three parts — the Peering Forum, tutorials, and conference tracks. Topics proposed must be relevant to Internet operations and technologies. These include:

  • IPv4/IPv6 routing and operations
  • Internet backbone operations
  • Peering, interconnects and IXPs
  • Network function virtualization
  • Content Distribution Network technology & operations
  • Research on Internet operations and deployment
  • Network infrastructure security
  • IPv6 deployment on fixed and wireless/cellular networks
  • Access and transport technologies, including cable/DSL, LTE/5G, wireless, metro Ethernet, fibre, segment routing
  • Content and service delivery and ‘cloud computing’

Draft slides for both tutorials and conference sessions MUST be provided with submissions otherwise the PC will be unable to review the submission; this means that submissions that do not include slides will be rejected immediately. For work in progress, the most current information available at time of submission is acceptable.

All draft and complete slides must be submitted in PDF format only. Slides must be of original work, with all company confidential marks removed.

Final slides are to be provided for publication by 20 January 2020.

Prospective presenters should note that the majority of speaking slots will be filled well before the final submission deadline. The PC may, at their discretion, retain a limited number of slots up to the final submission deadline for presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational importance.

Every year the PC turns away submissions due to the program slots being filled before the deadline. Presenters should try to get material to the PC sooner rather than later.
