The next OARC Spring Workshop will take place in Amsterdam on May 9th
and 10th, the weekend before RIPE70. OARC is requesting proposals for
presentations, with a preference for DDoS attack reports and mitigation
techniques. Reports and field stories can cover DNS-based DDoS attacks,
attacks to DNS infrastructure or side effects suffered by cache resolver

This workshop intends to build from previous strong OARC workshops,
where operational content and research is welcome. Presentations from
DNS operators are particularly welcome, as well as from DNS researchers.
All DNS-related subjects are accepted, introduction to new tools,
visualizations, DNSSEC and novel uses of the DNS.  If you are an OARC
member, and have a sensitive topic you would like to present for
members-only, we will accommodate those talks too. Adopting practice
from other conferences, a timeslot for lighting talks will be available
for short presentations (5 to 10 minutes).
