Message from the Executive Committee Chairs

We will hold the JANOG50 meeting from July 13th to 15th, 2022, in Hakodate, Japan.
This meeting is a discussion place for not only network operators but also people from a wide variety of professions can gather and discuss.

The theme of JANOG50 is “Change.”

Our lifestyle and workstyle were changed dramatically due to the COVID-19 pandemic two years ago.
Network technology has an important role in these changes.
And we believe that many things will continue changing in the future using network technologies.
On the other hand, some things won’t be changing or things that want to protect from changing in the future.
We hope you will actively discuss these various opinions in this meeting.

We are considering a system of participation and presentation utilizing both online and offline due to the remaining COVID-19 impact.

We, the JANOG50 Executive Committee, will keep it changing with the situation to maximize the power of this community.
And we would like to hold a meeting for everyone can be excited.

Also, we will continue to hold NETCON (NETwork troubleshooting CONtest) as we did the last JANOG49. Please join it!
