In case you hadn't seen it, there's going to be a SIPNOC conference coming up in April in Washington, DC.  It's basically a NANOG-type meeting for SIP folks.  We're looking for SIP network operators (service providers, enterprises, etc.) to present on topics they think other operators may find of interest.  For example:

SIP Trunking or Peering - topics may include best practices, issues, agreement models, and routing methods for SIP enterprise trunks, or peering between service providers or between enterprises

Applications/content - topics may include new or novel media, new user service features, new uses of SIP, storage/recording, or topics about IM, presence, fax, video or telepresence

Interoperability - topics may include best practices, issues found, current state of deployed equipment, or tactics for resolving interop issues

Routing - topics may include new or novel mechanisms, best practices, or issues with routing of SIP sessions/requests/calls

Security - topics may include experience with or tactics/best-practices for handling fraud, DDoS, overload events, AAA, blacklists, SPIT or war-dialers

Monitoring/Troubleshoooting - topics may include experiences or mechanisms for monitoring remote or large SIP networks, measuring or monitoring call quality, or how to reproduce and resolve issues

Testing - topics may include techniques for equipment certification, procedures for testing new trunks/peers, useful tools or scripts

Availability/Disaster-Recovery - topics may include techniques, architectures or procedures for handling equipment failures, site/PoP failures, Internet or network transport outages, or power outages

The above are just example topics.  In general, presentations are being sought by and for SIP network operators of all sizes.  Presentations about difficult problems (and interesting solutions) that you encounter in the course of your job are encouraged.
