Registration for LACNIC 27 is Now Open
Registration is now open for LACNIC 27, the event that will take place in Foz do Iguaçú (Brazil) on 22-26 May with the participation of noted experts on IPv6, regional interconnection, security and anti abuse.
A large audience is expected –to date there are already close to 400 registered participants– so for the first time a limit of 650 participants has been set (650 full passes including daily lunches, social event ticket and promotional materials). LACNIC’s Development and Cooperation department noted that, once this limit is reached, an option will be enabled to register for a visitor pass that includes access to open sessions, so it is important that you register as soon as possible.
To date there are about 400 registered participants.
The registration fee for LACNIC 27 is USD 300, with an early-bird option (USD 200) available until 24 April.
Payments will also be accepted at the meeting’s registration desk (full price), where only cash will be accepted (US dollars).
The sponsorship program aimed at the LACNIC community received 378 applications and selected 29 individuals from 18 different countries throughout the region.
Topics to be addressed. The final phase of IPv4 exhaustion, IPv6 status in the LAC region, progress made by Latin American and Caribbean IXPs, new threats to cybersecurity, and the new role of Internet governance after the Service Level Agreement for the IANA Numbering Services will be among the central topics addressed at the meeting.
IPv6 will be among the highlights of the event, as Timothy Winters of IOL Laboratory and Mikel Jimenez Fernandez of Facebook have already confirmed their participation as speakers.
Other highlights will include the merger of the Interconnection Forum with the open meeting of LAC-IX and the anti-abuse workshop to be presented in Foz as part of LACNIC’s WARP agreement with M3AAWG to provide training on best practices for network operators.
The event will also include several technical tutorials on Basic and Advanced IPv6, Monitoring, Peeering, BGP and RPKI, and other topics.
