Internet Events

All the global internet conferences, meetings and workshops that we are aware of are listed on the Event Organisers Calendar. Anyone who knows of an Internet event which is not listed on that calendar is invited to either contact the APRICOT Secretariat or create the event on the calendar themselves.

NOGs in the Asia Pacific Region

There are many Network Operator Groups (NOGs) in the Asia Pacific region, with numbers growing every year as the operators serving each economy realise the value that collaboration and cooperation within their communities can bring.

APNOG has created a list of the NOGs in the region to assist members of the global Internet community. APNOG provides support to many of the NOGs, be it via assistance with event sponsorship, the paper submission system, or help with finding speakers and instructors for the NOG events.
