The Caribbean Network Operators Group (CaribNOG) and ICANN will be jointly hosting CaribNOG's 9th Regional Meeting and the LAC-i-Roadshow at the Golden Palm Events Centre in Castries, St. Lucia, from 27 Apr to 1st May 2015.
CaribNOG is a forum designed specifically to create greater levels of technical collaboration in the Caribbean. A key objective of CaribNOG is to better position the Caribbean to address critical technology challenges and issues and to collaboratively derive relevant solutions. CaribNOG meetings draw industry experts from across the region and around the world to the beautiful islands of the Caribbean.
Founded in 2010, over the years CaribNOG has been building its reputation as an influential forum where network technicians and technology professionals share experiences and participate in high-tech training exercises and workshops. This ninth event comes on the heels of two very successful meetings held in Dominica and Curacao during 2014.
The LAC-i-Roadshow is one of the projects of the LAC Strategy, a strategy that was developed by the different stakeholders groups represented at ICANN from the LAC region. It is designed to raise awareness across the region on key topics related to the DNS critical infrastructure such as the transition to IPv6, SSR (Security, Stability and Resiliency) and the impact of the new gTLD program. To ensure a well distributed set of events, there will be four editions of the LAC-i-Roadshow per year: The Caribbean; Andean Region; Mexico and Central America and South America. Each event of the LAC-i-Roadshow will be led by local champions on each of the subjects complementing their expertise with other experts from the region when appropriate.
CaribNOG 9 is expected to attract speakers and participants from Latin America, Europe, Africa and North America. The international nature of gathering affords St Lucia a unique opportunity to showcase itself and OECS to the world as a significant technology hub.
Further information on the CaribNOG 9 event including the agenda will be made available soon.
