We are happy to announce we’ve just formalized plans to hold our next ION Conference: ION Costa Rica will be held on Monday, 3 July, alongside the Latin American eScience 2017 Meeting and TICAL. We sincerely thank RedCLARA for their enthusiasm and hard work to bring all the pieces together. Also, we are thankful for the ongoing 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 TLS for Applications. We’re working on a draft agenda and will soon be filling the speaker slots, so if you’ll be in San Jose in July or are already planning to attend and you think you might make a good candidate, please speak up in the comments below or via our social media channels. A quick preview of some potential sessions:
- IPv6 Success Stories – Network Operators Tell All!
- Deploying DNSSEC: A Case Study
- What’s Happening at the IETF? Internet Standards and How to Get Involved
- Where are your MANRS? Working Together to Improve Routing Security
We’re still working out the logistics and registration details, so stay tuned to the ION Costa Rica pages 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 – and we do plan to have onsite simultaneous translation between Spanish and English to maximize participation. (Stay tuned for more information on that as we get closer.)
We’re also working on a couple more ION Conferences for 2017, as well as our 2018 and beyond locations. Are you part of something that might lend itself to co-locating with an ION? Let us know! We hold several 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 an existing ION Conference.
We hope to see you in Costa Rica, or at a future event!
