               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.
      
      
      Sponsors
      --------
      
      There are opportunities remaining for organisations to sponsor various
      aspects of the NZNOG meeting.
      
      Please contact sponsorship at nznog dot org 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.
      
      
      Presentations
      -------------
      
      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:

      If you are interested in submitting a talk please fill out the questions
      at then end of this document and email them to talks at nznog dot org .
      
      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.
