What is JANOG

JANOG is the JApan Network Operators' Group. As with a number of other communities which share the same last three letters NOG, JANOG is a forum for network operators, and it focuses on Japan.

JANOG's two major activities are semiannual meetings and a mailing list. Semiannual meetings are held in various cities in Japan in January and July, and gather 400+ participants. The mailing list - janog[at]janog.gr.jp has 6000+ subscribers as of June 2013.

Join our Meetings?

Our Meetings are in Japanese but we welcome non-Japanese speakers.

Try asking secretariat[at]janog.gr.jp to find details of the meeting and let us know how we can help you joining JANOG meetings if you are interested! We have had several non Japanese speakers presenting at JANOG, or even as just participants.

Presenting at JANOG Meeting

In making a presentation at JANOG, we would appreciate your considerations for the general JANOG attendees, who are mostly not familiar with communicating in English.

Non-Japanese speakers usually arrange an informal interpreter, or have their slides translated in Japanese by a volunteer.

If you are interested in making a presentation at JANOG but cannot arrange an interpreter yourself, you could try consulting the i18n team. Although we cannot guarantee, we may be able to help you on volunteer basis.

What Kinds of Topics Are Appropriate?

JANOG presentations are highly technical in content, and focus on operational issues of critical importance to the operations community.

Attendees are quite sensitive to keeping JANOG presentations non-commercial, and product pitches are strongly discouraged.

As long as it is non-commercial, we are open to any discussions about the internet technologies, operational experience, case studies or any other information relavent to the operations community.


CFP will be annnouced for every JANOG meeting on the JANOG mailing list. Based on the CFP announced, please submit the primary speaker, moderator, or author should submit presentation information and an abstract to meeting-34[at]janog.gr.jp by Email before the set deadline.

       Preferred contact email address

We recommend you to bring extra batteries as power outlets are often limited.

An effort to get JANOG contents available in English - JANOG i18n Team

JANOG has started an effort to communicate in English with a voluntary team. This team is called the "i18n - internationalization" team. This English page is one of the efforts, and some meeting content and documents are often translated into English. Please stay tuned to this page.
