On the Move broadens its horizons
Following the success of its On the Move events in different countries in the Caribbean, LACNIC has decided to expand the initiative to the entire region of Central America and the Caribbean. Five of these meetings have already been planned for 2016 and will be held in Guatemala, Honduras, Guyana, Dominican Republic and St. Martin.
LACNIC On the Move will seek to promote and develop common regional agendas and make sure that all Latin American and Caribbean players can participate in building an Internet that will benefit our social, economic and cultural development, said Cesar Diaz, LACNIC’s External Relations Manager for Central America.
Meetings will be held over one or two days and will cover multiple topics focusing on Internet communities, governments and the key players that make up the Internet ecosystem.
Over the course of these meetings, experts will share information, experiences and best practices in IPv6 deployment as well as the promotion of Internet Exchange Points (IXPs); these meetings will also cover computer security issues and current discussions on Internet Governance.
The first event will be held on 27-29 April in Honduras; the second, in Guyana on 6-8 June; the third, on 8-10 August in Dominican Republic; and the last event on the On the move agenda will be held in St. Martin on 26-28 October.
