Although the main Call for Presentations closed a few weeks ago, we have space for some Lightening Talks. These should last between 5 and 10 minutes each.

Please submit your proposals no later than 10:30 ICT on Monday May 13th, 2019.

The 30th DNS-OARC Workshop will take place at the Shangri-La Hotel, Bangkok, Thailand, on May 12th and 13th 2019, hosted by ICANN.

(Note that several co-located meetings are taking place immediately prior to the DNS-OARC Workshop, including the GDD Industry Summit, May 6th-9th, the Registrations Operations Workshop, May 9th, and the ICANN DNS Symposium, May 10th-11th.)

The Workshop's Program Committee is now requesting proposals for presentations. All DNS-related subjects are welcome.

A timeslot will also be available for lightning talks (5-10 minutes) on the afternoon of day two of the workshop. Submissions for lightning talks will be accepted closer to the start of the workshop and until the start of the morning session on day two.

There will be a Members-only session during the workshop, which will include reports on DNS-OARC's activities. If you are an OARC member and have a sensitive topic that you wish to present during that session those can be accommodated.
