The anticipation is killing us! NANOG 83 is almost here and we cannot wait to see you! NANOG 83 will take place online + in person in Minneapolis, MN, from Nov. 1 - 3.

We are ecstatic to invite attendees to our first hybrid meeting, NANOG 83. This meeting will be in-person for those who can travel and a robust virtual experience, for those who cannot.

Keynote 1: Introducing "Geeky Entrepreneur" + Seasoned Government Intelligence Cybersecurity Pro Bert Hubert

Meet Bert Hubert: Bert (@PowerDNS_Bertis) is the founder of PowerDNS; a software that powers a significant fraction of the Internet. He also does government cybersecurity work and co-founded a software company in that field. These days, Bert does DNA research and is part of the governing board that regulates the Dutch intelligence and security agencies.

Date: Tuesday, Nov. 2nd at 10 am Central virtually with a live Q&A. 
Talk Title: Who Really Controls the Internet? And Should They?

Abstract of Presentation:  This presentation discusses how control of the internet experience is moving
more and more into the hands of browser and phone vendors.  The advent of
end-to-end encryption, also on control planes and metadata like DNS, means
that no one else is able to influence the internet - except in extremely
heavy handed and binary fashion.

This moves a lot of agency to browser and phone vendors, who now can decide
if and how they want to help governments and societies, or not.  They could
also enforce their own vision on what the internet & society should be.  If
governments don't agree, they have to resort to heavy measures to impose
their will, as we've recently seen happening in Russia.

Date: Wednesday, Nov. 3rd at 10 am Central live from the Great Lakes Ballroom stage.
Talk Title:  IPv6 - The Next 10 years

Abstract of Presentation:  World IPv6 Day was in 2011, World IPv6 Launch in 2012.  We will briefly reflect on the status of IPv6 deployment across eyeball and content networks ~10 years later.  We will take a look at statistics across a wide range of public and private (cited) sources.  In 2021 the cost of IPv4 address acquisition is increasing, dramatically.  We will take a close look at what has worked and what has not, across the board, focusing on what the next 10 years of IPv6 need to look like to not just increase adoption but to increase bonafide end-to-end usage.
