NZNOG meetings provide opportunities for the exchange of technical information and discussion of issues relating to the operation of network services, with particular emphasis on New Zealand.

NZNOG has invited presentations on relevant topics. Suitable topics include, but are not limited to: Operation of the DNS in New Zealand; Carrier IP network structures; Internet exchange activities; VoIP deployment; IP Routing theory or practice; Access technologies; Network management tools and practices.
