SAFNOG + ZANOG Virtual Conference

SAFNOG and ZANOG are teaming up to host the SAFNOG and ZANOG Virtual Conference 2020

While we had deferred the 2020 conferences to 2021 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic, we realise that there is a strong need to not only keep the conversations on the issues and development of the Internet ongoing but now more than ever, to provide a platform to keep the community engaged and discuss new challenges.

For this reason, SAFNOG and ZANOG will be teaming up to host the SAFNOG and ZANOG Virtual Conference on 29 October 2020.

The SAFNOG + ZANOG Virtual Conference will bring together industry experts from the region to discuss the trends and challenges relating to the internet, including the effects of the global pandemic. The conference will consist of presentations and a panel discussion from a panel of experts.

SAFNOG-6: Deferred - Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As you are aware, the world is facing the ongoing challenge of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), which has had a material impact on a number of local, regional and global events and businesses across various industries.

Our 6th instalment

Unfortunately, the preparation for SAFNOG-6, initially scheduled for the September, 2020, has not been spared, as the pandemic has made logistical planning uncertain amongst our sponsors, supporters and venues. To this end, we have made the rather difficult, but responsible, decision to defer the SAFNOG-6 meeting to 20th - 22nd September, 2021, in order to ensure that safety and health comes first.

SAFNOG would also like to take this opportunity to encourage its and other Network Operators Groups members to actively use and increase their participation on this and other mailing lists around the world, as the learning and engagement process never ends; and in fact, is probably more crucial in these times. The operational community can continue to exist successfully even throughout this period of social distancing.

We look forward to seeing you all in the near future, and wish you continued good health and care.

Mailing List

The mailing list was established to provide a forum for the exchange of technical information and the discussion of specific implementation issues that require cooperation among network service providers.

To ensure that the list is a useful forum for discussion of relevant technical issues, participants are asked to respect these guidelines. Failure to do so can lead to posting rights being denied.
