With less than two weeks to go, activity is ramping up for APNIC 42. The packed program features three days of technical content, including presentations from international technical experts, tutorials, and the popular Lightning Talks.

Here are just a few sessions to consider when you’re planning your schedule.

  1. Keynote speakers Zaid Ali Kahn will talk about rolling out IPv6 at LinkedIn and Prof. Rohan Samarajiva will discuss connectivity in the Bay of Bengal at the Opening Ceremony.
  2. Philip Smith will provide helpful, practical advice on how to migrate your network to IPv6 at the IPv6 Transition Strategies tutorial.
  3. Geoff Huston features in several sessions, talking about IPv6 performance, RPKI and more.
  4. Kam Sze Yeung will discuss CDNs and Internet Traffic Analysis.
  5. Merike Kaeo will talk about IPv6 security and cyber abuse through the DNS.
  6. Jonathan Brewer will discuss a peering strategy for the Pacific Islands.
  7. The FIRST Technical Colloquia, facilitated by Adli Wahid, will provide a forum to share information about Internet security vulnerabilities, incidents, tools and other issues that affect the operation of incident response and security teams.

Policy SIG

Two proposals are up for discussion:

  • prop-116: This proposal helps to ensure the distribution of the ‘Final/8’ block (103/8) is consistent with its original purpose, for distribution for new entrants to the industry.
  • Proposal to revise SIG Chair election procedures: This proposal identifies two issues with the current SIG Chair election procedures and seeks to resolve them. First it classifies remote participants as eligible voters in the election and second ensures the two-year term of service are aligned for Chair and Co-Chair, even after the early resignation of a Chair.

The proposals have been summarized and translated for your convenience.

Have your say and participate in the SIG either in person, or remotely on Wednesday, 5 October.
