Welcome to APRICOT 2024, held in Bangkok, the vibrant capital of Thailand!

The 28th APRICOT presents a technical program with plenty to offer for all those attending in person and online.

APRICOT 2024 highlights

Don’t miss the Opening Ceremony on Tuesday, 27 February to hear keynote speakers Mona Jaber of Queen Mary University of London discuss the ‘Intelligent Internet of Things for Sustainable Development Goals’ and Randy Bush of IIJ discuss the ‘RIR Social Contract’.

In addition to the usual APOPs sessions, which feature presentations about BGP, networking, RIPE Atlas and RIS, there are also new Innovation sessions on securing Internet routing, traffic management and coherent optical transceivers. Make sure to attend the APNIC IPv6 Deployment session to hear IPv6 deployment use cases at universities in Indonesia, China, and India, and the APNIC Panel Discussion on the rise of CDNs and what that means for the Internet and address policy.

Get an update on IXPs and connectivity at the two APRICOT Peering Forums, including the peering personals on Wednesday, and dive into the Network Technologies, Internet Security and Operations sessions on Thursday, to get the latest updates on topics including satellite technology, API security, and lawful interception.

On Friday, hear from the APNIC Secretariat at three AGM sessions. The more technically-minded will enjoy the Operations and Innovation sessions, and the Lightning Talks, where you’re invited to share a presentation on topics that are timely, interesting, or even a little crazy!

The Closing Plenary ends the conference, with Afzal Abdul Rahim discussing digital sovereignty and the future of the Internet.
