The Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC) is pleased to invite you to take part in the LACNIC-CARIBBEAN 4 meeting from July 18th to 20th 2012 at the Karibe Hotel, Port-au-Prince, Haiti. This event will be hosted by AHTIC – Haitian Association for the ICTs.
LACNIC meetings provide opportunities to discuss recently completed activities, initiatives and proposals with members and sector representatives, to construct and articulate collaborative efforts for Internet development and stability in Latin America and the Caribbean. In addition to presenting the work that LACNIC has being doing in the region during the last 10 years, this meeting is intended as a space to think about the ways to facilitate IPv6 deployment in the Caribbean as well as technical solutions to face crisis situations like the one experienced in Haiti in 2010.
This meeting will comprise a one day IPv6 workshop with parallel sessions for the technical and non-technical participants. In the following days, it will be the occasion for LACNIC to make a presentation of its institution and activities such as the development of policies for the assignment of internet resources, the RPKI (Resource Certification and Routing Security), initiatives to strengthen the region, participation mechanisms, and discussion forums, among others.
Within the meeting, an exhibition will offer various companies the possibility to showcase their technology solutions for the deployment of IPv6 and tell their experiences in the management of the humanitarian crisis faced by the country in 2010.
As in previous years, and following with its policy of supporting the regional community, LACNIC will be offering a limited number of financial grants to members of the Internet community from LACNIC service region interested in attending the meeting at Haiti.
