Registration Open CaribNOG 16 Oct 2-3rd 2018
Trinidad and Tobago will host a major regional gathering to advance Internet development in the Caribbean. The event is the sixteenth regional meeting of the Caribbean Network Operators Group, called CaribNOG. It is being held in partnership with the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC).
ARIN and LACNIC are two of five Internet registries responsible for the coordination of Internet number resources worldwide, and both share that responsibility for the Caribbean region. Over the coming months, the two registries and CaribNOG members will work together to ensure the success of the highly anticipated October meeting. Building on the success of CaribNOG 15, which was held in Miami in April, CaribNOG 16 will continue to focus on the issue of network resilience.
"The resilience of the Internet in the Caribbean depends on and affects many other aspects of regional development. At CaribNOG 16, we hope to leverage the presence of a diverse range of stakeholders to create a high-yield environment for technical discussions about the future of the Caribbean internet," said Jamaican-born Stephen Lee, Program Director at CaribNOG and CEO of US-based technology services firm, Arkitechs.
CaribNOG 16 will be part of a five-day event called Internet Week, also supported by the Caribbean Telecommunications Union, the Internet Society, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), and Google. The weeklong conference follows LACNIC's recent announcement of its new partnership with Google to strengthen local Internet connectivity and build the digital entrepreneurship ecosystem across Central America and the Caribbean.
