The LACNIC XVII meeting will be held in the city of Quito, Ecuador from 6 to 11 May, 2012 at the Swissôtel Quito with the support of SUPERTEL, Ecuador's Telecommunications Superintendent, and CORPECE, the Ecuatorean e-Commerce Corporation.
The name of the event will be The New Internet Generation: Opportunities and Challenges for Latin America and the Caribbean and its main goal will be to promote Internet development and stability, helping the more than 600 million inhabitants of our region join the Information Society.
The week-long program includes various activities ranging from technical training workshops on new technologies, security, and the promotion of IPv6 adoption, to open technical forums such as the Public Policy Forum and the Security, Interconnection and FLIP 6 Forums. The program also includes the LACNIC Annual Member Assembly, the Government Working Group meeting, and the Annual Assembly and workshops organized by the region's ccTLD association, LACTLD.
We anticipate that the Quito meeting will contribute to the discussion of the issues that are essencial for Internet operation within the region.
