BRIDGETOWN, Barbados -- The 13th regional meeting of the Caribbean Network Operators Group, or CaribNOG, will take place in Barbados from April 18 to 19, 2017.

CaribNOG is the region’s first volunteer-based community of network engineers, computer security experts and tech aficionados.

“At CaribNOG 13, we’re expecting a large turnout of network operators, telecommunications regulators, academics, Internet service providers, engineering and computer science students, special interest groups and government representatives, drawn from across the region and around the world,” said Bevil Wooding, founder of CaribNOG and internet strategist with Packet Clearing House.

Since its establishment in 2010, the community’s unique spirit has made it one of the most highly anticipated events on the regional calendar. For Caribbean uber-geeks, CaribNOG’s twice-yearly meetings make it easily distinguishable from other regional tech conferences.

Major global Internet organisations also look forward to the gatherings because they provide a rare opportunity to meet and socialise with the community of professionals responsible for the Caribbean’s computer networks.

CaribNOG13 follows on the heels of a very successful CaribNOG12, held in Philipsburg, Sint Maarten, as part of Internet Week Sint Maarten. At CaribNOG 12, some 50 industry professionals from Curacao, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Trinidad and Tobago, Uruguay and USA came together from October 24 to 26 to exchange information, trade perspectives and share experiences.

Supported by the Caribbean Telecommunications Union, Packet Clearing House, ArkiTechs and The BrightPath Foundation, the three-day gathering featured a slate of international experts, who conducted hands-on sessions covering technical, social and policy aspects of Internet infrastructure, cloud computing and cyber security.

Registration details and event information are available on the official CaribNOG website www.caribnog.org.
