AusNOG is a community of network operators who work in ISPs, Content Providers, or other areas of the On-Line Industry in Australia.  In response to overwhelming demand, a group of volunteers decided to organise the AusNOG Conference, with the inaugural conference being held in Sydney in 2007. The event allows for the free exchange of ideas, experiences, and technical information as well as an opportunity to network with other members of the industry over a beer or three.
The annual AusNOG conference has grown in popularity and has gained a reputation as the premier technical event for the Internet industry in Australia.  The programme is technical / operational and does not include any sales or marketing oriented material.  In addition to Australian presenters, AusNOG attracts quality speakers from Asia, Europe, and the United States.
