The SIP Forum, an IP communications industry association that aims to promote and advance SIP-based technology, recently extended the official Call for Presentations for its third annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC 2013), to be held at the Hyatt Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA, April 22-25.

Call for Presentations proposals can be submitted by visiting the SIP Forum site.

Suggested topics include SIP peering, SIP trunking, emergency services, congestion control, scaling and capacity issues, SIP-based applications, routing, security, and IPv6 deployment challenges to name a few.

The types of speaking opportunities at the event include: General Session Talks, which tackle a topic of interest for the general SIPNOC audience; General Session Panels, which feature a moderator and team of panelists; Special Workshops, offering an in-depth look at issues important to the SIPNOC community; Research Topics, in which researchers present short summaries of their work for operator feedback; and BOFs (Birds of a Feather sessions), informal sessions on specific topics.

The SIP Forum initially opened Call for Presentations in January. This extension will allow interested parties to submit proposals until February 28.

SIPNOC 2013 is a unique, network operator-focused event that focuses on the challenges and opportunities of deploying SIP-based carrier services. Attendees will include telecommunications providers, major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers, ISPs, cable operators, wireless network operators, and large enterprises deploying major SIP initiatives.

Back in October, the SIP Forum formed a SIP over IPv6 Task Group comprised of stakeholders from the service provider, application developer and equipment communities.

The group aims to address key deployment and interoperability issues in the migration to SIP over IPv6. Specific areas of focus include evaluating the current status of SIP over IPv6 based on IETF and other industry standardization, reviewing the work of technical entities such as the IPv6 Forum, and functioning as a resource and advisor for SIP Forum members.
