    Draft slides MUST be provided with submissions otherwise the Program Committee will be unable to review the submission. For work in progress, the most current information available at time of submission is acceptable.

    All draft slides submitted for PC review must be in PDF or PPT format only.

    Final slides are to be provided a week before the conference starts for display in the session room and publication on the APNIC 48 conference website. Please format your slides sized to a 16:9 display format.

    Prospective presenters should note that the majority of speaking slots will be filled well before the final submission deadline. The PC will retain a limited number of slots up to the final submission deadline for presentations that are exceptionally timely, important, or of critical operational importance.
