Dear Colleagues,

AfriNIC is issuing a call for proposals to Governmental Institutions, 
Civil Society and Private Sector Organisations willing to host the 
AfriNIC-15 and AfriNIC-17 Public Policy Meeting.

Our events represent an important platform for the Internet community to 
discuss policies and issues that are relevant for the African region. 
These events also offer a prime opportunity to share knowledge and 
experiences in network operations. As you may know, the majority of 
attendees are technical decision makers from ISPs, telcos, regulatory 
bodies and network operators in the African region. Hosting such events 
arises public awareness on the country as well as contributes to the 
service of our whole Internet community.The local meeting hosts thus 
receive optimum exposure being associated with such events and 
particularly in collaboration with AfriNIC, being a key player in IP 
address distribution and Internet development in the region.

Upon selection, a site visit to the hosting country will be coordinated, 
within the meeting year, to finalise all details regarding the hosting 
of the AfriNIC meeting.

Detailed guidelines for interested parties including the hosting 
requirements and budget information can be found at:

AfriNIC-15: 19-25 November 2011


AfriNIC-17: 24-30 November 2012


Please submit your proposal on or before:

15 March 2011 for AfriNIC-15

15 April 2011 for AfriNIC-17

Please feel free to contact the AfriNIC meeting team should you require 
any additional information or for any inquiries at <meeting at afrinic.net>.

Thank you & regards
