The Asia Pacific OperatorS Forum - the NOG for the Asia Pacific Region

Co-chairs: Philip Smith (APNIC), Tomoya Yoshida (Multifeed) and Matsuzaki Yoshinobu (IIJ).


APOPS is the Network Operators Group for the Asia Pacific region. APOPS meets twice a year, during the February APRICOT summit and during the August APNIC conference.


APOPS was established as a mailing list for ISP operations engineers as early as 1996. With the growth of the Internet in the region, the first APOPS meetings were held as part of the APNIC annual members meeting in 2000.

Up until the end of 2006, APOPS meetings have been held during the annual APRICOT conference and the mid-year APNIC meeting.

From 2007, APOPS took on a greater role within the Asia Pacific Internet Operations community, forming the general plenary session of the APRICOT conference (following a revamp of the multi-track programme format of APRICOT). And APOPS formed the general plenary session at the joint SANOG 10 and APNIC 24 meeting in New Delhi in August 2007.

Next Meeting:

The next APOPS meeting will be held as part of APNIC 38 in September 2014.
