This Workshop on Network Technology is held from 24 to 30 May 2008, in conjunction with the ninth meeting of the African Network Operators Group, AfNOG 2008, the eighth public meeting of AfriNIC, AfriNIC-8, and several other meetings from 31 May to 6 June 2008.
The venue for the workshop is the Ecole Mohammadia d'Ingénieurs, and the venue for the meetings is the Golden Tulip Farah Hotel, both in Rabat, Morocco.
The workshop aims to offer advanced training to operators of existing African Internet Service Providers (ISPs) who are participants in the process of developing and enhancing a national Internet with regional and international connectivity.
This workshop builds upon the experiences of the previous AfNOG workshops held in Cape Town (South Africa) in 2000, Accra (Ghana) in 2001, Lomé (Togo) in 2002, Kampala (Uganda) in 2003, Dakar (Sénégal) in 2004, Maputo (Moçambique) in 2005, Nairobi (Kenya) in 2006, Abuja (Nigeria) in 2007, and the Internet Society's INET workshops held from 1993–2000 at eight locations around the world.
AfNOG 2008 was made possible by generous contributions from several sponsors.
The goals of the Workshop are:
An intensive program of instruction is planned for the workshop, composed of three instructional tracks in English, and one in French. Participants attend only one of the tracks, since the tracks run concurrently. All participants will engage in extensive hands-on training, setting up and managing prototype infrastructure and services.
Detailed information for each track appears below.
