Dear Colleagues,

For the first time, the next MENOG meeting (5 – 9 April 2009: Manama, 
Bahrain) will feature world-class workshops on Routing and IPv6 for 
network operators and engineers from the Middle East. These three-day 
workshops will include a full lab, designed for network engineers and 
operators who are running existing ISP infrastructure. The workshops 
will be of particular interest to attendees with a working knowledge of 
configuration fundamentals and who are interested in scaling their 
network operation, or who are about to deploy a new network. In addition 
to world-class, hands on training, participants will get a certificate 
for attending these workshops.

The Routing Workshop will focus on OSPF/ISIS and BGP as well as 
configuration best practices while the IPv6 Workshop will focus on
routing protocols, co-existence and network deployment. The workshop 
instructors are experienced in the Internet Operations community, having 
given many similar workshops at other major regional Operations meetings 
(such as APRICOT, SANOG, AfNOG etc).

Both workshops will run for three days, from Sunday 5 to Tuesday 7 
April. A fee of €235 applies to workshops.

For more information on these workshops, see:

Apart from the fee for these workshops and your accommodation, the MENOG 
event is FREE to attend. It runs in parallel with the RIPE NCC Regional 
Meeting, which is held in the same venue from 8 – 9 April.  Once you
