OARC 35 will be an online meeting on May 6th & 7th starting at 01:00 UTC. The Programme Committee is seeking contributions from the community.

All DNS-related subjects and suggestions for discussion topics are welcome. For inspiration, we provide a non-exhaustive list of ideas:

  • Stories of DNS Migrations: Reasoning for DNS software migration. Tooling used to ensure a smooth and correct process.
  • DNS Intricacies: Chasing down problems and surprising behavior.
  • Garbage Traffic: Analysis on unexpected traffic seen by authoritative and recursive servers.
