OARC 34 Call for Presentations

The Workshop’s Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome.

Based on the feedback from the previous workshop, the DNS-OARC audience is interested to see more content related to DNS operations. Therefore we are particularly interested in submissions from DNS Operators about attack mitigation and any major (public or non-public) DNS outages that your organization might have faced over the last year or so, the steps taken to resolve/mitigate the immediate issue, and to prevent future such events and any lessons learned.

As it is an online workshop, we’d like to encourage brevity; presentations should not be longer than 20 minutes (with additional time for questions).

Workshop Milestones:

09 Dec 2020 : Submissions open via Indico
04 Jan 2021 : Deadline for submission (23:59 UTC)
14 Jan 2021 : Initial Contribution list published
21 Jan 2021 : Full agenda published
28 Jan 2021 : Deadline for slideset submission and Rehearsal
04 Feb 2021 : OARC 34 Workshop

Details for presentation submission are published here:

To allow the Programme Committee to make objective assessments of submissions, so as to ensure the quality of the workshop, submissions SHOULD include slides. Draft slides are acceptable on submission.

Additional information for speakers of OARC 34:

- your talk will be broadcast live and recorded for future reference
- your presentation slides will be available for delegates and others to download and refer to, before, during and after the meeting
