Peering Forum

Peering Personal submissions must be of a single slide listing the operator’s PeeringDB entry. Please refer to this information on how to create a successful Peering Personal presentation.

Call for Papers (CFP) submission

Draft slides for both tutorials and conference sessions MUST be provided with CFP submissions otherwise the submission will be rejected immediately. For work in progress, the most current information available at the time of submission is acceptable.

All draft and complete slides must be submitted in PDF format only.

Slides must be of original work, preferably not presented before at other venues, with all company confidential marks removed.

Final slides are to be provided by the specified deadline for publication on the APRICOT 2023 website.

Prospective presenters should note that most 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 we turn away submissions, due to all available program slots being filled before the deadline. Presenters should try to get material into the PC sooner rather than later.

Any questions or concerns should be addressed to the PC by email.

We look forward to receiving your presentation proposals.
