APRICOT Announcement

  • From: Geoff Huston
  • Date: Thu Nov 23 22:18:11 1995

There are a number of  reasons for posting this announcement here:
 - Hans-Werner asked me to,
 - the weather in Singapore at that time of the year will be much
   warmer than _anywhere_ on the North American continent,
 - it will be an interesting operational workshop!

cheers,

  Geoff Huston

   SUMMARY:

   APRICOT is a forum for the exchange of technical know-how for In-
   ternet Service Providers and Network Operators

   OVERVIEW:

   The rapid growth of the Internet has brought many newcomers into
   positions of critical operational responsibility. They are ex-
   pected to be experts in the design, configuration, operation and
   maintenance of routers, terminal servers, WWW & UNIX servers, and
   a myriad of specific hardware/software systems. They must operate
   network management centers, customer support lines, and handle
   security incidents. They must liase with network registries, com-
   munications carriers, and their colleague operators. They must
   perform these duties efficiently even as their networks grow in-
   creasingly large and complex. Yet, the resources for learning the
   skills necessary to perform these tasks successfully are sparse
   and rarely provide specific information and examples.

   To address this critical need, the ASIA PACIFIC NETWORK INFORMA-
   TION (APNIC) has initiated the ASIA PACIFIC REGIONAL INTERNET
   CONFERENCE ON OPERATIONAL TECHNOLOGY (APRICOT).

   APRICOT consists of seminars, conference sessions, and forums all
   with the goal of spreading and sharing the specific technical in-
   formation required to operate the increasingly complex Asia Pa-
   cific Internet topologies.

   APRICOT will be held immediately preceding the APNIC general
   meeting and the Asia Pacific Networking Group (APNG) meetings
   which includes the commercial sub-group and the internationaliza-
   tion and localization subgroup meetings.
