ยินดีต้อนรับ! APNIC is pleased to welcome you to Chiang Mai, Thailand, for APNIC 48.

We’re very excited to bring you APNIC 48 and offer our thanks to the hosts, THNIC Foundation and Thai Internet Service Provider Association (TISPA), and all the sponsors for supporting APNIC 48.

Program highlights

With the increased operational impact of routing hijacks, routing and network security is in focus at APNIC with an entire day in the conference program — Wednesday, 11 September — dedicated to it.  You can look forward to:

The Opening Ceremony will also feature presentations on security with keynote presenters Narelle Wakely presenting on the role cybersecurity played in the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Job Snidjers presenting on how RPKI can reduce business continuity risks.

You’ll still get your network operations fix, however, with three Technical sessions, an IPv6 deployment session, and tutorials on segment routing and RIPE Atlas to extend your skills.

Policy SIG

Join the Policy SIG meeting on Thursday, 12 September to share your views on the policy proposals up for discussion:

Remember, any policy change will affect you; it’s important to let others know what you think of the proposed changes.

Join the session, participate remotely via CONFER, or contribute via the Policy SIG mailing list.


The APNIC Member Meeting (AMM) will be held directly after the Policy SIG. Here, APNIC Members can learn more about APNIC’s operations and financial performance.

The Number Resource Organization Number Council (NRO NC) election will also be held on Thursday, with on-site voting taking place from 09:30 to 14:00 (UTC +7). The successful candidates for the position open for election will be announced during the last session of the AMM.
