Mailing lists

APNIC hosts public forums to facilitate discussion on a range of topics related to Internet addressing and networking. The majority of the discussion occurs on mailing lists maintained by APNIC. This is complemented by publicly accessible face-to-face forums conducted at the twice-yearly APNIC Conferences.

Anyone with an interest is encouraged to attend or participate in any way. However, we please ask that you be mindful of the Code of Conduct that applies to the mailing lists.
