The North American Network Operators' Group (NANOG) will hold its 26th
meeting October 27-29, 2002, in Eugene, Oregon. The meeting will be hosted
by the University of Oregon and Sprint. Registration opens September 4.

NANOG 26 is a special occasion - the first joint meeting with ARIN, the
American Registry for Internet Numbers. ARIN manages IP numbers for North
and South America, the Caribbean, and sub-Saharan Africa. NANOG will meet
as usual from Sunday to Tuesday, and ARIN from Wednesday to Friday,
Oct. 30 - Nov. 1.

NANOG conferences provide a forum for the coordination and dissemination
of technical information related to large-scale (i.e.,
national/international) Internet backbone networking technologies and
operational practices. Meetings are held three times each year, and
include two days of short presentations, plus afternoon/evening tutorial
sessions and special forums. The meetings are informal, with an emphasis
on relevance to current backbone engineering practices. NANOG conferences
draw over 500 participants, mainly consisting of engineering staff from
national service providers, and members of the research and education

The meeting will be held at the Hilton Eugene and Conference Center. For
