Our Dublin workshop is proving to be packed, from both a content and
attendance point of view.

Our main themed session for the workshop is on the ever-topical subject
of open resolver-based attacks, with 4 speakers, chaired by Merike Kaeo
on Sunday afternoon. Much of Monday morning is devoted to talks and
operational experience and measurement of DNSSEC. We have a number of
talks on various approaches to DNS monitoring, and several research talks.

My new colleague William Sotomayor will be reporting on his progress
rejuvenating OARC's infrastructure, and I will be speaking about the
recent member survey, board retreat, and ensuing OARC development plan.
Note that although these talks in the second half of Monday morning are
targetted at and mostly of interest to OARC Members, we are not having a
formally closed members-only session this time.

Please note that the meeting venue is now *full*, and we can't accept

At the end of the Sunday (18:30) we have a social event, we're grateful
