ABOUT APRICOT 2004
The 9th Annual Asia-Pacific Regional Internet Conference of Technology
(APRICOT) will be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
from 18-27 February 2004.
Founded in 1996, APRICOT has established itself as Asia-Pacific's
premier Internet Summit where related organizations
converge and host their annual general meetings plus other special events.
Regarded as a highly technical forum, APRICOT is a platform that
facilitates knowledge sharing among the region's Internet
community. The week-long summit comprises seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, Birds of a Feather (BOFs),
as well as other forums, all geared towards spreading and sharing the knowledge required to operate the Internet within the
Asia Pacific region.
As a non-Profit Organisation, APRICOT aspires to advance the skills
and understanding necessary to grow a robust Internet
infrastructure in the Asia Pacific region by pooling the world's top Internet experts together with those who can benefit
most from this valuable knowledge.
APRICOT attendees are the key builders of Asia-Pacific's Internet.
These are individuals who directly impact the
operational deployment and stability of Internet Protocol (IP)-based networks and services.
One fundamental principle of APRICOT has been its vendor-neutral
objectiveness that provides for informed opinion. It
creates a neutral educational forum that provides for frank discussions on the skills, policies and technologies that are
critical for the smooth operation of the Internet network and services infrastructure both regionally and internationally.
This event has a one-year technology horizon. This means that APRICOT
is involved with the latest technologies in
cyberspace today, or those that are likely to emerge within the next 12 months. As APRICOT is only organised once a ear,
special attention is given to the creation of affinity groups that foster mutual support throughout the year. During the
year, these affinity groups play a key role as a source of knowledge and experience.
