About AFRINIC Meetings

AFRINIC holds two open public policy meetings every year in various locations throughout Africa, its service region. AFRINIC meetings provide a unique opportunity for Internet-related individuals and organisations to gather and discuss the policies governing Internet number resource distribution in the African region, to share technical knowledge, and to attend workshops and tutorials.

* The allocation and management of IP addresses and ASNs
* Technical and Internet governance issues
* Networking, peering and security
* Domain names, cyber laws and registrars issues
* Updates of the African registry operations, RIR, IANA, and ICANN updates

Public policy discussions will take place during AFRINIC-25.
