APNIC participated in the 50th Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN 50) meeting, held online for the first time, from 3 to 7 August 2020.

APAN meetings provide a space for the research and education community to share their network-enabled activities during five days of tutorials, workshops, presentations and demonstrations.

APNIC activities:

  • Geoff Huston gave a keynote talk on ‘NREN Challenges’, emphasizing the NREN’s role as a platform for research into networking, among other roles, rather than only as a service network for unrelated research.
