ion_conferences_blue_pngIt’s almost time for our last two ION Conferences of the year in Krakow, Poland, and Toronto, ON, Canada!

Our first 2013 event in Singapore was fantastic – we had industry experts from across the globe answer your deployment questions, with a mix of high-level strategic discussions, real-world deployment experiences, and lots of networking opportunities.

The next two events both have jam-packed agendas with IPv6DNSSEC, and Routing information that will be brought to you by top-notch experts. ION Conferences are also a great way for us to get your direct feedback on what else you need to get started, so that we know what new resources to add to the Deploy360 site next.

Here are some details on the two upcoming events.

Krakow, Poland

ION Krakow will be co-located with the Polish Network Operators’ Group (PLnog). PLnog is one of the largest NOGs in Europe with around 600 network engineers, operators, providers, and other assorted IT professionals converging for two days of technical sessions, panel discussions, case studies, and networking. They’ve got a medieval theme this year, so we embraced it and had some fun with our session titles.

  • Monday, 30 September 2013
  • PLnog taking place 30 September – 1 October
  • Registration Information. We have a few free passes for ISOC members, and a 25% discount code for everyone else. (ISOC membership is free, so why not join?)
  • Agenda sessions include:
    • An ISOC Poland Overview of the Local IT Landscape
    • Slaying the Two-Headed Beast: Challenges and Triumphs of DNSSEC
    • Fortifying the Castle: An Update on Global IPv6 Deployment
    • Routing Around Catastrophe
    • Protocols of the Round Table: BCOP Efforts Update
    • Global IPv6 Tournament: Who will take the IPv6 Crown?
  • Speakers from around the globe from companies including ISOC Poland, StatDNS, OpenDNSSEC, Cisco, Deutsche Telekom, and more.

Toronto, ON, Canada

ION Toronto will be co-located with the Canadian ISP Summit. This is the second time we’re partnering with that conference, so we expect to see some familiar faces and continue some great discussions from our last event there. We’ll bring high-level discussions and technical information to systems administrators, engineers, and network administrators from both large and small service providers and enterprise networks.

  • Monday, 11 November 2013
  • Canadian ISP Summit taking place 11-13 November
  • Registration Information. ION Toronto (only) is FREE to attend. We also have a discount code if you’d like to attend the full Summit. Registration is filling up, though, so act soon! 
  • Agenda sessions include:
    • ISOC Canada
    • Why Implement DNSSEC?
    • Deploying DNSSEC: A .CA Case Study
    • IPv6 Deployment Update: Where Are We Today?
    • IETF Update
    • Best Current Operational Practices: A Global Perspective
    • Improving the Resilience and Security of the Internet’s Routing
  • Speakers from companies including ISOC Canada, Afilias, CIRA, UNH-IOL, Verisign, and more.

If you’ll be in Krakow or Toronto, please join us and let us know on FacebookTwitter, or Google+ (using the hashtag #IONConf), or email us.

If you can’t be there in person, we’re working out webcast details and will provide more information later. After the events, check the web pages to find featured presentations and other highlights.

We hope to see you out there!
