MPLS 2011

Call for Presentation Abstracts - MPLS 2011

Submission deadline May 13 2011

MPLS 2011 International Conference, the 14th Annual International Conference on MPLS and Related Technologies, will be held October 16 - 19, 2011, in Washington, DC at the Omni Shoreham Hotel. The Program Committee of MPLS 2011 is soliciting presentation proposals for the conference. The committee seeks original and unpublished work to continue the tradition initiated by this conference in 1998 of covering cutting-edge topics. Presentations addressing new technologies and operational experience are solicited from network equipment vendors, service providers, the research community, government agencies, and enterprise users.

Please submit your abstracts to
