It’s official! Our next ION Conference will be ION Bucharest on 12 October 2016. This time, we’ll be co-locating with the Romanian Network Operators’ Group (RONOG). We’re very thankful for the enthusiasm and support we’ve received from RONOG. Also, as usual, this ION has generous support from our ION Conference Series Sponsor Afilias.
We’ll have a half-day program and cover some combination of our favorite topics including IPv6, DNSSEC, Securing BGP, and the IETF. We’re working on a draft agenda and will soon be filling the speaker slots, so if you’ll be in Romania in October or are already planning to attend RONOG and you think you might make a good candidate, please speak up in the comments below or via our social media channels. The agenda may include things like:
- Update from ISOC Romania Chapter
- IPv6 Update
- IPv6 Deployment panel
- DNSSEC & DANE
- RPKI & Routing Security
- Collaborative Security & Mutually Agreed Norms for Routing Security (MANRS)
- What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved
We’re still working out the logistics and registration details, so stay tuned to the ION Bucharest website or this blog for more information. We’re also hoping to live stream the ION, so even if you can’t be there in person you’ll be able to follow along online. (Stay tuned for more information on that as we get closer.)
We’re also working on one more ION Conferences for 2016, as well as our 2017 and beyond locations. Are you part of something that might lend itself to co-locating with an ION? Let us know! We hold three or four events each year in locations all over the world, and we are open to all sorts of opportunities. Contact us to discuss co-location possibilities, or how your company could sponsor ION Bucharest or a future ION Conference.
We hope to see you in Bucharest on 12 October, or at a future event!
