AusNOG holds an annual conference focusing on the operation of service provider networks.  The events are the primary technical conference for network operators in Australia.  AusNOG Conferences are limited to 200 attendees and attract the top network engineers in the country.  The events are usually sold out before the close of registration.  AusNOG conferences attract quality domestic and international speakers and have gained a reputation for being both informative and relevant.  AusNOG is a technical conference with a focus on the operation of large networks and associated infrastructure.  There are no sales or marketing presentations allowed on the programme.
Each AusNOG conference includes the AusNOG Social on the evening between the 2 days of presentations.  The AusNOG Social is a social event aimed to encourage personal and professional networking between the attendees.  Increasing the cooperation between Network Operators in Australia is one of the primary goals of AusNOG.  Encouraging the country's key engineering staff to meet and socialise has had a positive impact on the industry.
