Working Groups

The IXPUG working groups provide a virtual means to meet more regularly with other IXPUG members between yearly face-to-face meetings.  The working groups were started to foster greater collaboration and knowledge-sharing related to topics of particular interest, and are a great way to get involved in the IXPUG community.

How to Join a Working Group

Working groups are open to anybody that wishes to join.

Instructions for dialing into individual meetings are included below.  If you wish to be added to the mailing list for a working group, please contact the organizer directly.

Proposing a New Working Group

New working groups are started when there is a significant amount of interest in a topic and sufficient momentum to sustain it.  If you would be interested in attending a work group focused on any of the topics below (or would like to propose a new topic), please let us know by posting in the working group discussion forum.
