Announcing the OARC 31 Agenda

Timetable of presentations and list of speakers now online

DNS-OARC is coming to Austin, Texas, USA for its 31st Workshop and will take place at the JW Marriott Austin on October 31st and November 1st, 2019 — immediately after NANOG 77 on October 28th, 29th and 30th.


We are happy to announce that we have an extremely full and strong programme lined up.

The Workshop Agenda of accepted presentations by speakers well known in the DNS industry is published here:


The list of speakers and presentations is at:


Attending OARC 31

To participate in person, please register to attend sooner rather than later — discounted early bird registration (with additional discounts for delegates from OARC member organisations) ends on October 9th, 2019.

Attending DNS-OARC Workshops is open to all OARC members and other parties interested in DNS operations and research.

NANOG 77 (taking place immediately prior to OARC 31) attendees are particularly welcome as both meetings will have complementary and non-overlapping content.

Further details and Registration links are on the OARC 31 Registration Page.

Accommodation during OARC 31

As OARC 31 is only a few weeks away, you’ll want to make your travel arrangements while there is still time to take advantage of the discounted hotel rate!

The deadline for OARC attendees to receive the discounted rate of $269 + taxes at the JW Marriott Austin is October 6th, 2019.

Rooms are still available for arrival on October 31st and departure on November 2nd. It is important that you book your room as soon as possible due to the limited number of rooms available.

If you are experiencing booking issues and desired dates (such as shoulder nights) are not available, please contact <> for assistance.

Space will be an issue, so don’t delay!


Call for Sponsors for OARC 31

DNS-OARC workshops represent a unique opportunity to increase the visibility of your organization, products and services to the key influencers who operate the Internet’s DNS and other key players in the global Internet community.

As a non-profit organization, OARC relies on registration fees, patronage and sponsorship to help with the costs for its programme of workshops.

We are thankful to Comcast for being a sponsor at OARC 31 and to Verisign for being a Patron for the whole of 2019.

We have further sponsor opportunities for the upcoming Workshop to meet all budgets — with options ranging from $2000 up to $15000.

Further details are available on the OARC 31 Call for Sponsors.

Please contact if your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor.


OARC 32 will take place on February 8th, 2020 in San Francisco — and now that we have announced the agenda for the upcoming Workshop, we have opened the CfP for the one after. Take a look at:
