GRNOG, the Greek Network Operators Group, is “a community of professionals that are involved in the design, implementation, provisioning and operation of Greek Internet services, networks and infrastructure”. The purpose of this group is to create a human network of professionals with common technical interests; to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and information among its members; to promote the cooperation between companies, bodies and parties related to the Greek Internet; to disseminate Greek and global Internet developments, emerging technologies, best operating practices and standards; and to develop tools, policies, practices and means of communication that facilitate day-to-day operations and long-term design and planning. www.grnog.gr]
Among other activities, GRNOG organises technical meetings and workshops. Those meetings are quite successful, with a large number of attendees from several companies and diverse sectors. Actually, these meetings have succeeded in being established as “the events where Greek networking people meet and discuss”.
