Over 200 key players in the local, regional and global Internet industry coming together in the African Network Information Centre (AFRINIC) are set to gather in Mauritius at Sofitel Imperial Resort & Spa in Mauritius from 25th – 30th November 2016 to discuss Internetworking for African Development for the 25th time.
Workshops and tutorials will take place from 25 - 27 November 2016 while the plenary sessions will be held from 28 - 30 November, 2016.
AFRINIC holds two open public policy meetings every year in various locations throughout Africa, its service region. AFRINIC meetings provide a unique opportunity for Internet-related individuals and organizations to gather and discuss the policies governing Internet number resource distribution in the African region, to share technical knowledge, attend workshops and tutorials.
Mauritius, which also serves as AFRINIC Headquarters, was chosen to hold the 25th Meeting. Local stakeholders are encouraged to register and get involved.
Plenary sessions bring the various stakeholder groups of the African ICT community together, including the Af* organizations and ISPs, for public policy discussions, presentations and stakeholder panel sessions on:
* The allocation and management of IP addresses and ASNs
* Technical and Internet governance issues
* Networking, peering and security
* Domain names, cyber laws and registrars issues
* Updates of the African registry operations, RIR, IANA, and ICANN updates
Public policy discussions will take place during AFRINIC-25.
