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 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.

  • Passed up by the program committee on your paper to change the protocol octets to 11-bit quantities because a prime provides more transport protection from alternate endian gateways?

Important note: the winner will receive a nice prize donated by fantastic sponsors!

Take a look at last years call for outrage to get an idea of the sweep of history related to this event.
