We’re delighted to welcome you to Taichung, Taiwan, for APNIC 44. This is the fifth APNIC conference we’ve held in Taiwan and thanks must go to our local host, TWNIC, and the Taichung City Government for their support in organizing the event.
Cisco’s Anand Oswal and APNIC’s Geoff Huston will headline a packed program featuring three days of technical content, including presentations from international technical experts, tutorials, and the popular Lightning Talks.
We’re pleased to have Minister Ho Chen Tan — from the Ministry of Transportation and Communications, Taiwan — and Taichung City Government Mayor, Chia-Lung Lin, join us to share their welcome remarks.
For those of you who cannot attend in person, most of the sessions will be webcast and transcribed.
If you have any queries about your number resources or membership, visit the APNIC Lounge adjacent to the Registration desk. APNIC staff will be on hand to assist. If you update your whois contacts or create your ROA while at the lounge, you’ll get a cool T-shirt. You might also win a prize just for dropping by!
