DURBAN, SOUTH AFRICA
SAFNOG-3 are utilizing the iWeek Registration System for easier consolidation of attendee information.
As Africa develops her regional infrastructure, it has becomes more important to be able to build and sustain regional communities in support of the same. While not intended as a replacement for existing mailing fora, SAFNOG hopes to be able to provide a discussion forum, and build a community for matters specific to the sub-region.
SAFNOG is open to all ISP's and Internet related organisations from around the world. As such it has no owners, just a small group of dedicated individuals who look after the mailing list and organise the regular meetings.
Targeted at network and operations engineers in Southern Africa.
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.
