Bogotá welcomes a unique regional event
The next major regional Internet community event will take place in Bogotá (Colombia) from 28 September to 2 October, a major event where six relevant meetings and leading Latin American and Caribbean ICT experts will converge.
Each year, LACNIC holds this meeting during the second semester, co-located with LACNOG, the Latin American and Caribbean Network Operators Forum. The week-long event also welcomes meetings of other relevant organizations that also contribute to Internet development in our region: FIRST, LACTLD, Internet Governance Training, the LAC-i-Roadshow.

This unique event’s program includes technical training workshops on new technologies, security, the promotion of IPv6 deployment, the current status of Internet Governance, information security incident management, the impact of the new gTLD (generic top-level domain) program, critical Internet infrastructure stability and other key topics. In addition, the program will also include four days of presentations and panel discussions on current issues, as well as keynotes delivered by leading international experts.
IPv6 deployment will be the central theme of LACNIC 24, with a focus on IPv6 technology as an enabler for the Internet of Things (IoT) or the digital interconnection of everyday objects to the Internet.
LACNOG 2015 will serve as a platform for members of the LACNOG community to share their experiences in network operation and infrastructure development, as well as to discuss technical implementation issues and best operating practices.
The Global Forum for Incident Response and Security Teams (FIRST) will meet during the first day of the event, when participants will share information on vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and other issues affecting the operation of computer security incident response teams.
Likewise, the regional organization that groups Latin American and Caribbean ccTLDs will hold its member assembly and a policy workshop during LACNIC 24.
In addition, Colombia has organized a round table on Internet Governance to discuss the progress made in terms of net neutrality and online freedom of expression.
Last but not least, participants will have the chance to attend the LAC-i-Roadshow, a space designed by ICANN for raising regional awareness on key issues having to do with the transition to IPv6, the impact of the new gTLD (generic top-level domain) program, and critical Internet infrastructure security and stability.
