A BoF, held at 11:00 on Tuesday, 16 September during APNIC 38, discussed a proposal for the creation of an APNIC Cooperation SIG. The proposal for the creation of the SIG will be presented at the APNIC Member Meeting (AMM) on Friday, 19 September for its endorsement by Members.
Here’s the draft Charter for the Cooperation SIG – which is open for community comment:
- The Cooperation SIG is a forum for discussion about broader Internet issues like Public Policy and Internet Governance, which are related to APNIC community interests, but which involve governments, other organizations, and other communities.
- The Secretariat will report to the SIG about APNIC’s outreach activities and seek advice and guidance on future activities.
- The SIG will act as a forum to develop and clarify the APNIC community’s position on issues of relevance to the public sector, or on matters for which a community position has been sought.
- The SIG should focus on information sharing, outreach, capacity building, and other activities that will advance APNIC’s vision for a global, open, stable, and secure Internet.
The presentation slides from the BoF and the video of the session are available below.
The APNIC EC looks forward to hearing the community’s views on the proposal at the AMM.
