SIPNOC 2014 (http://www.sipnoc.org) is a unique, three-day educational
conference focusing on the challenges and opportunities related to the
deployment of SIP-based carrier services.

The SIPNOC conferences have attracted technical and operations personnel
from the global carrier community and include telecommunications providers,
major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers,
ISPs, cable operators, wireless network operators, and large enterprises
deploying major SIP initiatives.

This year, SIPNOC 2014 will feature a special NNI “Super-Session” - a
panel discussion focusing on the issues, challenges and proposed solutions
relating to IP-based Network-Network Interconnection.

In addition, there’s still a modicum of time to submit a proposal for
SIPNOC 2014 workshops, panels, speaker presentations and “Birds of a
Feather” sessions addressing the deployment of SIP in service provider

submitting material and specific SIPNOC policies, please visit www.sipforum.

challenges, User-agent Configuration, Standardization Issues and Progress,
HD voice deployments, Video Interoperability, WebRTC and SIP, FoIP/T.38

SIPNOC 2014 offers several different types of speaking opportunities

*	General Session Talks: A General Session presentation should be on a
topic of interest to the general SIPNOC audience, and may be up to 30
minutes long (including time for Q&A).
*	General Session Panels: Panels are sessions with a moderator and a
team of panelists. The panel moderator should submit an abstract on the
panel topic, a list of panelists, and how the panel will be organized. Panel
selection is based on the importance, originality, focus and timeliness of
the topic, expertise of proposed panelists, as well as the potential for
informative and controversial discussion.
*	Special Super-Sessions: The SIPNOC 2014 program has been expanded to
include special panel discussions and workshops that run for 1-2 hours,
providing time to focus in-depth on a variety of issues important to the
SIPNOC community.
*	Research Topics: Researchers are invited to present short summaries
of their work for operator feedback. Topics may include call routing,
network performance, statistical measurement and analysis and protocol
development and implementation. Studies presented may be works in progress.
Researchers from academia, government, and industry are encouraged to
*	BOFs: BOFs (Birds of a Feather sessions) are informal sessions on
topics which are of interest to a portion of the SIPNOC community. BOFs may
be held in break‐out areas or in an unscheduled room. Requests for
scheduled BOFs can be made at any time, including on site at the conference.
