OARC 37 Call for Presentations

The Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

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

Operations: Any operational gotchas, lessons learned from an outage, details/reasons for a recent outage (how to improve TTR, tooling)Deployment: Managing DNS changes and propagation, release process, change managementMonitoring: Log ingestion pipeline, analytics infrastructure, anomaly detectionScaling: Managing service capacity, failovers, disaster recovery

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

We are planning to run OARC 37 on a hybrid basis, which will allow
equitable participation both from those present in Austin, and online.
Clearly the latest Omicron pandemic variant is likely to impact this to some degree. OARC is working on policies, together with the venue and NANOG to ensure the safest possible arrangements for on-site attendees. The OARC Board is reviewing the situation, and will make a further announcement on OARC 37 plans no later than January 13th.
