The 2019 call for proposals closed this past June 17. A total of 27 proposals were received.
Over the next few months, the final locations will be selected together with the root server operators working with LACNIC on the + RAICES program. The selection will consider the criteria set forth in the call for proposals, including each institution's national and international connectivity, the ASNs with which it is interconnected, the number of beneficiaries, and their financing capacity.
We estimate that the first sites will be selected by early August, and the selected institutions will be duly informed of the next steps they must follow.
