Kon’nichiwa. APNIC is pleased to welcome you to Kyoto, Japan for APNIC 56.
There’s plenty of great content to look forward to over the next few days, including five technical sessions on topics including routing, DNS, multihoming, automation, and satellites. There are also two FIRST/APCERT/APNIC security sessions, an IPv6 deployment session, a Lightning Talks session, and more.
Don’t miss the Opening Ceremony with keynote speakers Jun Murai, who will discuss the Internet’s future in the Asia Pacific, and Yosuke Kaneko, who will talk about interplanetary networking — from Earth to the Moon, Mars, and beyond.
There will also be a very special 30th Anniversary Panel discussion looking back on 30 years of the APNIC community with Internet luminaries, including Elise Gerich and David Conrad.
