APAN was first established as a non-profit international consortium on 3rd June 1997. On 8th August 2009, in order to better meet the challenges associated with the changing environment, APAN was incorporated in Hong Kong as a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee (also known as an association). A brief history of APAN can be found at: http://www.apan.net/about/APAN.php

APAN organizes two meetings each year where its members and other interested participants come together in working groups, BoFs, committees, plenary sessions, and other meetings to review progress, demonstrate advances in technology and applications, and make plans for the future activities. The meetings venues are moved around the various APAN members. More information can be found at www.apan.net under the tab "Meetings".
