ISOC-AU Events

We believe that the social side of networking is just as important as the professional and infrastructure side. We organise a number of events throughout the year to educate, communicate, and simply bring people together who have a common focus on Internet development – such as get-togethers to discuss ISOC-AU issues, presentations from Internet experts, conferences for in-depth study of a developing interests, or just enjoying a meal together after a formal meeting. Here are some events we have been involved with over the years.
