Call for Presentations & Registration

DNS-OARC announces its inaugural OARConline workshop!

OARConline 32a will be a 2 hours long workshop (17:00–19:00 UTC) and will take place on June 9th, 2020.

OARConline 32a Call for Presentations

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

All DNS-related subjects are welcome, but we’re particularly interested in content which is timely and operationally relevant in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. Suggestions for discussion topics are also very welcome.

As the session is limited to 2 hours we’d like to encourage brevity, presentations ought to be no longer than 20 minutes, not including time for questions.

Subject areas we are looking for include the following, but not limited to:

* data on traffic growth
* operational scaling and availability challenges
* infrastructure and skills bottlenecks
* supply chain challenges
* personnel & infrastructure protection
* security/disinformation threats, public education
* ideas that are helping
* lessons learned
* information from official channels
* universal access inequities

OARC aims to keep its workshops self sustainable and thus relies on sponsorship as one part of funding to meet the total (including non-venue and non-workshop days) costs associated with running the workshops and related social events.

We are currently looking for sponsorship. As this is an online only workshop, we are open to sponsorships at the Contributor level at a minimum $2000.

Please refer to the OARC sponsorship opportunities document and contact if your organization is interested in becoming a sponsor.
