Welcome Message

Dear NANOG 82 Attendees,

Welcome to NANOG 82 sponsored by Kentik. We hope the following information helps you get the most out of your virtual experience.

Ensure you are logged into your NANOG Profile

Navigate to https://nanog.org/profile/ or click the “Sign In” button located near the top right hand corner of any page on the NANOG website. A sign-in page will appear. Log in with your credentials.

Participate in Conference Chat

The chat is built into the same page of the live stream and will run for the entire length of the conference. You will see three tabs within the chat. The first is for general conversations, the second is to send in questions for the Q&A portion of presentations, and the third is to ask for help. Each of these windows is moderated by NANOG Support or Program Committee members.


The NANOG 82 Agenda is available on the NANOG website. You can also download the agenda to your local electronic calendar via an .ics file after logging in to your NANOG account. Make sure to update your .ics file!

How to take part in the Virtual Expo

Visit the NANOG 82 Virtual Expo throughout the conference to learn about the latest technologies, and connect with representatives from North American companies and beyond. You'll have the chance to win a variety of swag + prizes, and pick up clues for each day’s scavenger hunt. Expo remains open through Friday, June 25, 2021!


We’ll have two 30-minute breaks each day of the conference: 1:30-2:00PM EDT and 3:00-3:30PM EDT. Join us for the last 15 minutes of the 1:30PM EDT break for Kahoot trivia games + win prizes.


Complete the NANOG 82 daily surveys each day of the conference, to enter drawings for a $100 VISA gift card. A winner will be drawn from each day’s responses on Friday, June 18, 2021.


We extend a special thank you to our NANOG 82 Sponsors.
