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 firstname.lastname@example.org for more information

Lightning talks ---------------
Lightning talks are short talks/presentations that last no more than 10 minutes. This is a good opportunity to get your pet topic out there or perhaps to get some experience with presenting without having to go to a full talk. At NZNOG'06 it is planned that there will be at least one hour long lightning talk session.
