The ITNOG2020 Programme Committee (PC) will evaluate the content proposals
according to the following Topics


Past event feedback has shown interest from the attendees in sessions that are practical and applicable to their networks.
This year we will be giving preference to presentations and tutorials that benefit the Italian operators community on the following topics

  • DDos: 2019 was marked by several ddos attacks that impacted Italian ISPs. Share your experience and the measures enacted to combat attacks on your network
  • Ripe has officially run out of IPv4 addresses and IPv6 support in Italy is lacking. What have you done to ensure continuity for your network and services?
  • New protocols and services. Last year we had a great debate on DOH, what does 2020 bring that can impact network operators and ISPs?
  • Access and backbone networks: design , technologies and operations, Share your experiences, choices, best practices, or any other tidbits that are helpful to the community
  • Peering and Interconnections: tools, strategies and useful information for building and maintaining a resilient Italian Internet

Have another topic?
If it is technical and can be of interest to the community send it in.


Submissions will only be accepted if they match the requirements defined herein. The topic of the presentation should be technical, with strong focus on the development, engineering and operation of internet networks.

The ITNOG community is quite sensitive to keeping presentations non-commercial, and product marketing talks are strongly discouraged. Repeated audience feedback shows that the most successful talks focus on operational experience, research results, or case studies. For example, presenters wishing to describe a commercial solution should focus on the underlying technology and not attempt a product demonstration.

To submit a presentation to the Program Committee make sure to include:

  • An abstract of your presentation ( in English or Italian )
  • The requested time frame
  • A draft or the final version of the slide deck to be presented.
  • Presentations may be in English or Italian, and will be divided between lightning talks (max7 minutes) and tutorials or presentation between 10 and 30 minutes in length.
    A 5 minute Q&A session will follow each presentation.

Submissions should be sent to no later than April 25th 2020.
