The SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC) is an outstanding event happening in Herndon, Virginia, USA, from April 22-25. It brings together network operators working with SIP / VoIP networks for several days of talks, networking (of the human kind) and education. I've gone the past two years, speaking about IPv6, and they are truly excellent conferences. Not too big, not too small... and with an extremely high quality of people both attending and speaking.
- SIP Trunking
- Congestion Control
- Applications/content Development
- Call Routing
- Monitoring/Troubleshoooting and Operational Issues
- Testing Considerations and Tools
- WebRTC and SIP
- SIP-Network Operations Center Best Practices
- Standardization Issues and Progress
- FoIP/T.38 Deployment

- IPv6 Deployment Challenges
- Emergency Services
- Scaling and Capacity Issues
- HD-Voice Deployment Challenges
- Video Interop Issues
They are seeking individual talks, panel sessions, research sessions and BOFs.
Even if you just have an idea for a session, I'd encourage you to submit a proposal so that the SIPNOC 2013 Program Committee will know of your interest and can reach out to you for more details. More info about the process can be found on the CFP page.
If you aren't interested in speaking, but are now intrigued by SIPNOC and would like to be learning from all the excellent sessions, you can go to the SIPNOC 2013 main page and find out information about how to register and attend.
If you work at or for a telecom/network operator who is involved with SIP and VoIP, I highly recommend SIPNOC as a conference you should attend - you'll learn a huge amount and make great connections.
P.S. I have no affiliation with SIPNOC other than being a speaker there in the past. SIPNOC is a production of the SIP Forum, a great group of people focused on advancing the deployment and interoperability of communications products and services based on SIP.
