Around 30 students from across the Asia Pacific region attended APSIG 2016.

The Asia Pacific School on Internet Governance (APSIG) recently held a three-day series of workshops at the Asia Institute of Technology in Bangkok, Thailand, from 11 to 15 September.

APSIG 2016 provided attendees – around 30 students from across the Asia Pacific region – with a greater understanding of Internet governance issues, from a legal, technical and social perspective.

APNIC’s Pablo Hinojosa was among a group of lecturers that delivered the workshops.

During the same week, the Asia Pacific Top Level Domain Name Association held its 70th meeting – APTLD 70 – also in Bangkok, gathering the ccTLDs from Asia Pacific.

APNIC activities:

  • During APSIG, Pablo gave lectures during two workshops and moderated a third:
    • The first was on the principles of Internet policy. With the aid of APNIC-produced playing cards, he organized an interactive game where the concepts of IP addressing, networking and routing were introduced, together with an explanation of the role of each technical coordinating organization.
    • During the second session, he presented on the IANA transition process and where it is at now.

    • During the final session he moderated a discussion on technology and engineering perspectives.
  • During APTLD, Pablo presented an update on APNIC activities, and also participated in a panel discussion about the IANA transition.
