How to give an Outrageous talk at Sigcomm 2000
If you have an outrageous opinion you would like to share, submit a really short summary (2-50 words) to Gary Delp email@example.com with "Outrageous Opinion" in the subject line; Alternately, find the cheerful fellow pictured here and hand him a slip of paper with your name, how to reach you, the title of your talk, and said 2-50 word summary. Presenters will be selected from the multitude of submissions by at least one SIGCOMM executive committee. The list of selected presenters will be posted during the session. The truly outrageous talk will dance the fine line between technological absurdity, absolute fortune telling, and declamatory diatribes destined to decimate the delicate dendrites of deduction developed during daily dialogue. The outrageous opinions session has been a growing fixture of SIGCOMM since 1995 and is the ideal forum for your world changing idea.
The last two suggestions were winners of the OO session last year in Boston, so do not repeat them, but if you have ideas that should be contained to avoid loss of tenure, then here is the place to air them.
