  1. A newcomers reception will be held during breakfast on Monday at the Fairmont. Continental breakfast will be made available in the break out room so that we will be able to introduce newcomers to NANOG properly with a sit down breakfast prior to the Keynote. 
  2. Keynotes. Tom Kilalea and Dan Cohn of Amazon have been confirmed to kick-off NANOG42. A second keynote speaker has been engaged to prepare a closer session on Wednesday. 
  3. Panels. Green Data Centers and the 100G Forwarding Architecture panels will appear on the agenda this month, including panelist and abstract info. 
  4. BOFs. Danny McPherson will lead Security and Bill Norton will lead Peering. Both are soliciting input directly for their respective sections. 
  5. Tutorials. Two or three will be held simultaneously each afternoon to allow for more vendor specific tutorials than in the recent past as per survey requests. 
  6. Research Forum. Researchers are invited to present short (10-minute) summaries of their work for operator feedback. Studies presented may be works in progress. Researchers from academia, government, and industry are encouraged to present. 
  7. Lightning talks. The tool will accept lightning talk submissions mid-January. An announcement will be made on NANOG-Announce outlining details for pre-conference lightning talk submissions. 
  8. General Sessions. The start time for the conference on Monday and Tuesday will be 10:00 am. Wednesday will kick off at 9:30am given 12:30pm close. We will also encourage a short break on Wednesday instead of the full 30 minutes to allow for additional lightning talks. 

Speaker slots are filling up quickly. Interested parties should submit abstract and presentation materials as soon as possible.
