Welcome Message

On behalf of the Local Organizing Committee comprising of members from CERNET, Tsinghua University and Shandong Quan Cheng Lab, we would like to extend our warmest welcome to all guests to the 54th Asia Pacific Advanced Network (APAN54) Meeting to be held in Jinan, Shandong Province, China from the 22nd – 26th August, 2022.

Due to the continued outbreak of COVID-19, the APAN Board and the Chinese LOC have decided to host the APAN meeting in a hybrid mode. Some participants from the Chinese mainland will attend the meeting physically while other guests will attend virtually.

It has been 25 years since APAN was proposed and formed under a Memorandum of Understanding in 1997. With all the continuous support and efforts of APAN primary members and partners, APAN has become a very important community in the Asia Pacific Region for scholars, experts, teachers, engineers and students from or related to national academic network organizations to share ideas and experiences of Internet development, to face the challenges, and to explore collaboration opportunities. APAN meetings are held twice per year and provides an excellent platform for networking and for academics and scientists to work together to promote national, regional and international Internet development.

APAN54 will have a range of exciting keynote speakers and different varieties of programmes including training, workshops, tutorials, presentations, demonstrations, conference sessions, and discussion panels. We sincerely invite all of you to register for this event and enjoy this exciting APAN54 meeting.
