Submit a Proposal

Proposals must be submitted electronically. By clicking on the ‘Submit’ buttons below, you will be automatically directed to the TNC Indico platform.
Access to the electronic submission system is available by using federated login.

Whilst we continue to monitor the development of the pandemic, our plans are to host a face-to-face event for the GÉANT community to meet in person. Basic remote participation will also be offered for those unable to travel.

Single presentation proposals

Duration: 25 minutes | Deadline: Tuesday, November 30

During the submission process, submitters will need to answer a set of questions and attach a pdf of the full proposal. Abstracts (the attachment) should be about 600 words (one A4 page). Submitters are encouraged to clearly explain why the TNC audience would be interested in the proposal and what they hope the audience will take away from the presentation.

Note: All speakers must be mentioned by name and organisation when submitting the proposal. A maximum of 2 speakers are allowed for this slot.

Proposals must include:

  • Presenter’s name and affiliation
  • Authors names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)
  • Presentation and audience description
  • Full proposal (attachment – see above)

Every presentation submission will be reviewed by the TNC22 Programme Committee. All submitters will be notified about the outcome in February 2022.


Demonstration proposals

Duration: 30 minutes | Deadline: Tuesday, February 15

The Demonstrations track is an opportunity for researchers, developers and partners to present their services, practical applications, innovative prototypes, on-going projects, lessons learned and recent results that are relevant to the conference’s topics of interest.

For the submission, we will ask for the following:

  • Demonstration title
  • Demonstrator’s name and affiliation
  • Authors names and affiliations (if different from the presenter)
  • Demonstration and audience description
  • Technical & connectivity requirements

Demonstrations will be possible throughout the conference in a dedicated area. Each accepted demonstration will be assigned 1 slot of 30 minutes each. All submitters will be notified in March 2022.
