AFRINIC holds two open public policy meetings every year in its service region, in various locations throughout Africa. AFRINIC meetings provide a unique opportunity for Internet-related individuals and organizations to gather and discuss the policies governing Internet number resource distribution in the African region, to share technical knowledge, and to attend workshops and tutorials. There are public discussions during the AFRINIC meetings. AFRINIC-25 is scheduled for 25th to 30th November 2016 at Mauritius.
For AFRINIC- 25, there are plenary sessions for the various stakeholder groups of the African ICT community, including the Af* organizations and Internet Service Providers (ISPs), for public policy discussions, presentations and stakeholder panel sessions on:
- The allocation and management of IP addresses and Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs)
