What is JANOG?

JANOG (JApan Network Operators' Group) is a network operators group, which was established in 1997 for network engineers in Japan. It's an operational and technical community to discuss technologies and operational practices around the Internet.

It runs semi-annual meetings, a mailing-list (janog <at> janog.gr.jp) and working groups (called 'WG') which are to discuss about a technical and operational topic intensively. WGs are formed when a request arises from JANOG members.

The main methods of communication are the mailing list and the semi-annual meetings.

The JANOG mailing list is free and open which anyone may subscribe. There are 7300+ mailing list members as of July 2015.

The meetings are held in January and July of each year in various cities in Japan. No registration fee is required for the meetings (except for social events during the meetings). The number of participants are around 500-800+ depending on meetings.
