Thursday and friday have traditionally been the practical workshop
days.
Is it not possible to run a stream on the main conference days? Or
is
it thought that room concerns may be too much?
No, Thursday and Friday have traditionally been days for the
presentation of papers. Tutorials and workshops ran Monday to
Wednesday.
In any case, we would be aiming to keep under the sort of cost
figure
Roger De Salis has mentioned.
Have you found out what the Uniforum conference fees are this year?
Would we just charge this? Or look to recover our own costs only?
These have yet to be set, and I see a decision about charges as one to
be made by discussion between NZNOG representatives and the UniForum NZ
convenor. If we choose to take this course.
[...]
I think we are still neglecting program content. We don't really have
a
good idea what people want to see. Unless they are all mailing you
privatly, in which case fess up with the info =)
I thought you were making reasonable progress collecting peoples'
preferences. There also remains the task of following up offers to
present or to provide speakers, which is a task I'm hoping not to end up
taking on alone.

Ok, My bad.

I got confused. It's been 5 years since I was at one =)
You said that the conference was going to be run Thurs-Sat. I thought
that as the first days used to be used for Tutorials etc that this was
the idea here.

sorry.

Sure - I just wondered if you had any information on this yet

Yeah - I'm just not seeing the level of response that would make me
comfortable that we have the right program.

Sure we have a list of possible things. But the responses for "Yeah I'd
come to see that" or "Nah thats dumb" have been deafening in their
silence.

We have thusfar had a few people interested in Wireless, A few in DDos,
and a few in Multicast. All in all about 10 people. This does not a
conference make.

I guess no one else is interested.

OK you guys have forced me out of silence .......
I would be interested in IP V6 migration strategies.
Interested in all things "VOIP" .
Would be like some tutorials on BGP/ routing protocols in general.
and a practical guide in multicasting .

Thats the sort of stuff I'd turn up for.

I think Waikato had offered network analysis and network monitoring
as a topic ... not sure there is interest in this, however ...

If there was a wiff of IPv6 I'd make the trip, VoIP, and multicasting would also
get me interested.

Well so as to add my vote, I'd be interested in Wireless, Neighbourhood
networking, IPv6, and Multicasting (having been involved in all of the
above to various extents).

Hmm. IPv6 multicast over a wireless neighbourhood network anyone? :)
