IPv6 Security Workshop – call for speakers

The UK IPv6 Council Security Workshop will take place on 12 July 2017 at the BT Centre, 81 Newgate Street, London EC1A 7AJ.

Attendance will be free of charge. BT have kindly provided the venue and refreshments. We encourage you to reserve the date now; registration will open in due course.

We have some speakers lined up, but the Council is also seeking offers of presentations, panels, and/or lightning talks.

We are looking for content covering IPv6 security engineering and operations, including but not limited to:

Security analysis of IPv6 protocols
IPv6 deployment best security practices
Securing dual-stack deployments
Comparison of IPv4 and IPv6 threat landscapes
IPv6 security tools or test suites
Guidance for IPv6 software implementors
IPv6 and DDoS
IPv6 IoT architectures
First-hop IPv6 security
Network management
Research areas in IPv6 security

Content should be largely 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.

If you are interested, please email your proposal to by Friday 28th April.
