-> PLEASE feel free to talk to us about any kind of topic and collaboration!!!

   You can always start a discussion on the list - I'm sure people join in.


Language of Slides and Talks

The whole day will be held in English, therefore we kindly ask you to produce 
your presentation in English.


Submission Guidelines

All submissions must have a strong technical bias and must not be solely 
promotional for your employer.

Please remember that your presentations should be suitable for a target 
audience of technicians from varied backgrounds, working for companies whose 
sizes may vary considerably.

To submit a proposal for a presentation, we request that you provide the 
following information to <swinog-core at>:


* the name of the presenter (and if applicable your affiliation)

* a working email address

* the name and number of the topic which will contain the presentation

* the title of the presentation

* its expected length (in minutes)

* a short abstract of the presentation (so we know what it is about)


We also welcome suggestions for specific presentations which you feel would be 
valuable to the SwiNOG community.

Please be aware that your presentation will be published on the SwiNOG website 
after the event. We can publish modified slides if requested - it might be that 
some confidential data will be presented by you which are not intended for 
publication on the internet.
