The AfNOG Workshop on Network Technology aims to offer advanced training to
people who are in the process of developing and enhancing an
Internet-connected network with regional and international connectivity. The
target audience includes senior and mid-level technical staff of commercial
Internet service providers (ISPs), academic networks, government networks,
or NGO networks.

This workshop builds on the experience of previous AfNOG workshops held
annually from 2000 to 2010 in eleven different African countries, and also
the Internet Society's INET workshops, held annually from 1993 to 2000 at
eight locations around the world. The workshop's instructors are an
international team with many years of experience operating large networks
and teaching about network operations.

The workshop is divided into Six parallel tracks:

   - SS-E - Scalable Internet Services (in English), focused on the design
   and operation of email, web, and other Internet services, in ways that can
   scale to handle large numbers of end users.
   - SI-E - Scalable Network Infrastructure (in English), focused on the
   design and operation of networks using routers and switches, in ways that
   can scale to handle large numbers of interconnected sites.
   - NM –  Network Monitoring & Management (English)
   - AR  -  Advanced Routing Techniques (English)
   - CT   - CERT Training (English)
   - SI-F - Infrastructure Reseaux IP (en francais), similar to track SI-E,
