SUBMIT A PROPOSAL

The TNC23 Programme Committee welcomes proposals under the themes of networking, security, trust and identity, communities and collaboration, and supporting research and education, but the most important aspect is to be of relevance and use to the NREN community.

Proposals must be submitted electronically. By clicking on the ‘Submit’ buttons below, you will be automatically directed to the TNC Indico platform. Access to the electronic submission system is available with federated login.

All submissions will be reviewed by the TNC23 Programme Committee. 

TNC does not support any remote contributions as the conference is a networking in-person event. If in-person participation is not possible for you, please reach out to the event organisers before submitting your proposal.

Should you have any questions about the submission process, please contact Steffie Bosman.

Single Presentation

SUBMISSION OPENS: 20 OCTOBER
SUBMISSION CLOSES: 30 NOVEMBER

During the submission process, submitters will need to answer a set of questions and attach a PDF of the full proposal. Abstracts (the attached full proposal) should be about 600 words (one A4 page). Submitters are encouraged to clearly explain why the TNC audience would be interested in the proposal, why it is relevant to TNC and what they hope the audience will take away from the presentation. Please, do not just give a project overview.

Note: All speakers must be mentioned by name and affiliation when submitting the proposal. A maximum of two speakers are allowed for each presentation.

Proposals must include:

  • Presenter’s name and affiliation
  • Authors’ names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)
  • Presentation and audience description
  • Full proposal (attachment – see above)

 

Single Presentation speakers are entitled to a discounted Speakers Pass.

Every submission will be reviewed by the TNC23 Programme Committee.

All submitters will be notified about the outcome of their submission in February 2023.

Workshop

SUBMISSION OPENS: 20 OCTOBER
SUBMISSION CLOSES: 30 NOVEMBER

‘Workshops’ – open and accessible to all – are full or half day meetings that bring the community together to discuss a topic of mutual interest. Examples from previous meetings include REFEDS and SIG-Marcomms. Workshops are typically multi-presenter meetings for a deep-dive into the relevant area.

These workshops, with maximum capacity for 150 participants, are expected to attract over 40 participants on average. The workshops will take place on Monday 5 June or Friday 9 June. The allocation of the date will be done by the TNC23 organisers and cannot be disputed.

Half day slot (9.00 –12.30 or 14.00 –17.30) or Full day (9.00 –17.30) slots are offered. The times of these slots cannot be modified.

Venue, catering and basic AV equipment (screen, projector and laptop) will be arranged by the TNC23 organisers at no further charge. Remote workshops will not be accepted. The workshop’s organiser and presenters will have to be physically present at the TNC23 venue. We can set up a stream for the workshop, but an interactive VC set up will not be provided by us.

Workshop participants will have to purchase a ticket for access the side meeting alongside the main TNC23 registration fee. More information on this can be soon be found on the ‘Register’ page.

 

All side meeting submissions will be reviewed by the TNC23 organisers.

All submitters will be notified about the outcome by the end of January 2023.

Demonstration

SUBMISSION OPENS: 20 OCTOBER
SUBMISSION CLOSES: 2 FEBRUARY

The Demonstrations track is an opportunity for researchers, developers, and partners to present their services, practical applications, innovative prototypes, ongoing projects, lessons learned, and recent results that are relevant to the conference’s topics of interest.

For the submission, we will ask for the following:

  • Demonstration title
  • Demonstrator’s name and affiliation
  • Authors names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)
  • Demonstration and audience description
  • Technical & connectivity requirements

 

Demonstrations will be possible throughout the conference in a dedicated area. Each accepted demonstration will be assigned one slot of 30 minutes each.

 

All submitters will be notified in February 2023.

Please note that Demonstrations cannot be presented remotely.

Lightning Talk

SUBMISSION OPENS: 2 FEBRUARY
SUBMISSION CLOSES: 10 MARCH

Lightning Talks focus on one key point. This can be an idea, a successful project, a cautionary story, a collaboration invitation, a quick tip or demonstration. It is an opportunity for ideas to get the attention they deserve, within a maximum of five minutes. The clock will be ticking, so get prepared!

Proposal abstracts should include:

  • Presentation title
  • Presentation description
  • Presenter’s name and affiliation
  • Authors’ names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)

 

Lightning Talk speakers are entitled to a discounted Speakers Pass.

All Lightning Talk submissions will be reviewed by the TNC23 Programme Committee and all submitters will be notified in mid March 2023.

Please note that Lightning Talks cannot be presented remotely.

Smaller side meeting

SUBMISSION OPENS: 2 FEBRUARY
SUBMISSION CLOSES: 10 MARCH

Smaller side meetings are considered meetings up to 40 pax, and will be scheduled either on Monday 5 June, Friday 9 June or during conference hours. The date will be allocated by the TNC23 organisers and cannot be disputed.

Smaller side meetings may not last longer than two hours.

Venue and basic AV equipment (no VC equipment) will be arranged by the TNC23 organisers at no further charge.

There is no need for participants to purchase a ticket for access.

All submitters will be notified in March 2023.

Please note that the TNC23 organisers will not arrange VC equipment or any other type of setup. Should there be a specific requirement for this, it is the responsibility of the side meeting organiser. Only projector and screen are covered by the ‘basic equipment’ description.
