The Asia Pacific
OperatorS Forum - the NOG for the Asia Pacific Region
Co-chairs: Philip Smith (APRICOT) and Matsuzaki Yoshinobu (IIJ).
APOPS is the Network Operators Group for the Asia Pacific region.
APOPS now meets annually, during the February APRICOT summit.
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.
From July 2019, APOPS was brought under the auspices of APNOG, the Asia Pacific Network
Operators Group Ltd, the non-profit organisation responsible
for the delivery of the annual APRICOT Summit.
The next APOPS meeting will be held as part of APRICOT 2023.
