Workshop Patronage & Sponsorship

The Domain Name System Operations Analysis and Research Center (DNS-OARC) is a non-profit, membership organization that seeks to improve the security, stability, and understanding of the Internet's DNS infrastructure. OARC's mission includes organizing workshops which build relationships among its community, enable knowledge transfer, and increase awareness of the DNS's significance.

OARC's workshops represent a unique opportunity to increase the visibility of your organization, products and services to the key influencers who operate the Internet's DNS and other key players in the global Internet community.

As a non-profit organization, OARC relies on registration fees, patronage and sponsorship to help with the costs for its programme of workshops.

OARC workshops run for two days comprising a range of technical presentations embodying state-of-the-art knowledge of running and protecting the Internet's mission critical DNS infrastructure, to a global audience. Attendance includes established OARC members and other interested parties including root operators, top-level DNS registries, registrars, ISPs, software vendors and researchers - people often quite difficult to reach by other means.

OARC workshops are generally co-located with the larger RIPE, NANOG, ICANN, and IETF meetings, rotating among European, North American, and other international locations.
