Building and Sustaining Regional Communities
As Africa develops her regional infrastructure, it has become 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.
We are pleased to announce that SAFNOG-6 will be taking place virtually on September 27-28, 2021. While we were looking forward to a physical meeting this year, the world is still facing the ongoing challenge of the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), and this makes it imperative that we hold the meeting virtually to ensure the safety of all while looking forward to meeting again in person in the near future.
The SAFNOG-6 Virtual Conference will be a two-day event of engagement and knowledge sharing on topics relevant to Internet Operations and Technologies such as IPv4 / IPv6 Routing and Operations; Internet policy (Security, Regulation, Content Management, Addressing, etc); Network security issues (NSP-SEC, DDoS, Anti-Spam, Anti-Malware); and IXPs and Peering, to name a few.
SAFNOG is a non-profit organization, and as such, we warmly welcome sponsors to contribute to the success of SAFNOG. Kindly take a moment to view our Sponsorship Matrix. Each sponsorship opportunity includes the additional benefits as described, which are based on the organization's sponsorship level.

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.
