SANE 2004 is an initiative of:

Stichting NLnet: The non-profit NLnet Foundation originated in 1989, but incorporates networking activities which go back as early as 1982. The foundation (in Dutch called "Stichting NLnet" or shortly "NLnet") has played a major role in raising the so called pan-European "UNIX" Network and the commercial and public Internet network provision in Holland. NLnet supports scientific research and 'Open Source' projects. Furthermore it synchronizes its activities with other organisations in the network field.

NLUUG: The independent Netherlands Unix User Group is mainly focussed on knowledge interchange through conferences, newsletters and special interest groups. The NLUUG was part of the birth of the Internet in the Netherlands 15 years ago. An activity which became autonomous in a later phase and grew into UUNET Nederland. Since 1985 the NLUUG has organised conferences twice yearly and was involved with the European EurOpen and EUUG conferences. About 800 companies are registered members of the NLUUG and make use of its services.

and with the cooperation of USENIX: the Advanced Computing Systems Association: Since 1975 the USENIX Association has brought together the community of engineers, system administrators, scientists, and technicians, at both commercial and scientific institutions, working on the cutting edge of the computing world. USENIX organises conferences and forums, student programs, publications on innovative and practical IT-solutions and maintains an on-line library.
