LACNIC is pleased to invite sponsors to support its annual meeting LACNIC XIII to be held in Curaçao, Netherlands Antilles from May 16th to 21st, 2010.
LACNIC is a membership-based non-profit international organization established in Montevideo, Uruguay, responsible for allocating and administrating IP addresses and other related resources (Autonomous System Numbers and Reverse Resolution) for the region of Latin America and the Caribbean. It is one of the five Regional Internet Registries (RIR) that exist worldwide and it is in charge of administrating these resources in a responsible manner, guaranteeing equal access for all of the region’s Internet operators and the application of community service criteria.
As part of its mission, LACNIC contributes to the development of regional capabilities through training and transmission of Internet-related technology, promoting the adoption of technological advancements and standards within the industry, strengthening the relationships with the main stakeholders of the Internet within the region.
Through its annual meetings, discussion fora and technical coordination activities, LACNIC is strongly involved with the Internet community of the region contributing to achieve these goals.
Description of the Event
LACNIC meeting is the event that takes place annually in different cities of the Latin America and the Caribbean region. Within the framework of this meeting, several activities take place, such as: Technical Training workshops, the Regional Interconnection Forum, the Network Security Event for Latin America and the Caribbean, the Latin American IPv6 Forum, the Public Policy Forum, Roundtable meetings, Regional Government working groups, and the Annual Members’ Assembly. Additionally, other regional organisations such as LACTLD (the association of ccTLDs of the region) take part in the meeting, participating in common activities as well as organizing a Policy workshop and having their annual members´ meeting.
The target audience is extremely broad, including among others, Internet service providers, regulatory bodies, academic networks, ccTLD operators, NAP operators, civil society representatives, governments and professionals from the telecommunications industry in general.
The last LACNIC meeting held in the city of Panama in 2009, had more than 300 attendees from 40 countries from Latin America and the Caribbean as well as from outside the region. For this reason, this is a unique opportunity to reach this important audience.
As a not-for-profit organization, LACNIC depends on its sponsors contributions to hold these meetings. Through their contributions, we reduce delegate participation costs. This enables the widest range of members from the regional community to attend these important meetings.
