[ OARC 35 ]is coming to the Asia Pacific region!

How is this being achieved?

It will be an online workshop and is scheduled to take place over the course of two days in an Asia Pacific friendly timezone — May 6th (01:00–06:30 UTC) and 7th (01:00–06:30 UTC), 2021. This will be around 6–9 hours of content / at least 10–12 presentations.

OARC 35 Call for Presentations

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

Submissions from the Asia Pacific region are encouraged.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

- Stories of DNS Migrations: Reasoning for DNS software migration. 
- Tooling used to ensure a smooth and correct process.
- DNS Intricacies: Chasing down problems and surprising behavior.
- Garbage Traffic: Analysis on unexpected traffic seen by authoritative and recursive servers.
- DITL: Day In The Life of various roles and teams in DNS.

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).
