CfP Submissions

Draft slides for both tutorials and conference sessions MUST be provided with 
CfP submissions otherwise the Programme Committee will be unable to review the 
submission. For avoidance of doubt this means that submissions which do not 
include slides will be rejected immediately. For work in progress, the most 
current information available at time of submission is acceptable.

All draft and complete slides must be submitted in PDF format only.

Final slides are to be provided by the specified deadline for publication on 
the SAFNOG-5 website.

Prospective presenters should note that the majority of speaking slots will be 
filled well before the final submission deadline. The PC may, at their 
discretion, retain a limited number of slots up to the final submission 
deadline for presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of 
critical operational importance. Every year we turn away submissions, due to 
filling up all available programme slots before the deadline. Presenters should 
endeavour to get material into the PC sooner rather than later.

Please submit your contributions online at<>

e-mail at:


We look forward to receiving your presentation proposals.
