On 27-31 October, the regional Internet community will meet in the Hotel Crowne Santiago, Chile for the LACNIC 22-LACNOG 2014 event.
This is one of the largest annual gatherings of the Latin American and Caribbean Internet community which seeks to create a forum where participants can share their experiences and discuss key issues for the future of the Internet at regional and global level. The meeting will be attended by more than 400 experienced professionals from leading organizations as well as government, academia, and civil society representatives.
The LACNIC 22 event will be held back-to-back with LACNOG 2014, the meeting of the Latin American and Caribbean Network Operators Group, a forum for discussing, learning and collaborating on topics directly related to Internet network operation.
For the second consecutive time, the event will be co-located with FIRST, the Forum of Incident Response and Security Teams, which will take place in parallel with the five technical tutorials.
This activity also includes the Peering Forum. This space seeks to provide the opportunity for the region's major Internet Service Providers, Content Providers, and Internet Exchange Points to discuss and negotiate peering and transit agreements.
Among others, the topics to be covered at the LACNIC 22-LACNOG 2014 meeting include current information security challenges, the strengthening of multistakeholder participation in Internet Governance, the first IPv6 success stories, and the transition of NTIA's stewardship of the IANA functions.
