Internet Society And Latin American Internet Leaders Gather In Panama For INET Regional Conference

Leading Latin American and international technologists and policy makers will gather in Panama City on Friday, 29 May, for the INET Latin America Regional Conference, organized by the Internet Society to bring together regional Internet leaders to explore emerging issues of significance to Internet development, deployment, and use.

The INET conference is being held alongside the LACNIC XII Conference, also being held this week in Panama City, which brings together representatives from different sectors of the Latin American and Caribbean Internet community, academia, civil society, telecommunications industry leaders, and government to discuss issues such as regional interconnection initiatives, IPv6 deployment, network security, and Internet policy.

The INET program will feature a presentation on Internet Governance by Raúl Echeberría, ISOC Board of Directors member and LACNIC Executive Director, and presentations by Christine Runnegar and Sally Wentworth from the Internet Society’s Public Policy team on Multilingualism and Regional Internet Access Issues.

“INET conferences provide a critical venue for fostering communication and collaboration among regional Internet leaders,” said Sebastian Bellagamba, manager of the Internet Society’s Latin American Bureau. “Local challenges and opportunities are best met by action that leverages both the technical expertise and policy experience of leading Internet community experts.”
