Technology and Governance for an Open and Secure Internet

Daily Recaps

Welcome to the fifth daily recap of the activities at LACNIC 19 in Medellin, Colombia!

On Thursday, May 9, 2013, three of LACNIC 19's parallel activities took place: LACTLD Assembly, FLIP-6 and the Regional Interconnection Forum.

The highlights of the morning were the LACTLD Board reelection of Frederico Neves (. BR) and the launch of the agreement between LACNIC, AEPROVI, CISCO, ANDEAN to help strengthen Internet (read the press release here)

The highpoints of the afternoon were the reports of the other Regional Internet Registries (ARIN, APNIC and RIPE, AFRINIC had done its presentation previously) and the First Latin America and Caribbean Peering Forum, during which 12 companies got together to negotiate issues related to direct interconnection between the countries of the region.

Thursday came to a closed with LACNIC members Assembly and a BoF (Birds of a Feather), which are informal group discussions on topics of specialized interest, in this case on IPv6 and Routing.

In the LACNIC members Assembly the annual report, the general balance sheet, inventory, expenses and resources accounts, the report of the external auditors and the fiscal commission report as of December 31, 2012 were presented and approved.  Vecchiatti Cassio was ratified as a member of the fiscal commission. The assembly rejected the nomination of Moacyr Francischetti Correa so José Enrique Díaz Jolly continues in his position at the electoral commission.

Join us tomorrow for LACNOG, the Public Policy Forum conclusion and the closing ceremony. This is the last daily recap but we will soon publish a comprehensive summary of the event.
