ION Costa Rica Agenda & Speaker Updates

Have you registered yet for ION Costa Rica? The event will be held on Monday, 3 July, in San Jose, alongside the Latin American eScience 2017 Meeting and TICAL. We’ll have a full-day program so we can cover topics including IPv6, DNSSEC, Routing Security and MANRS, and what’s happening at the IETF.

Megan Kruse and Kevin Meynell will be there from Deploy360, and we will be joined by our colleague Christian O’Flaherty from Internet Society’s Latin America & Caribbean Bureau, so please come and say hello.

We will have both English and Spanish speakers, and translation will be available. We’re looking into webcasting now and will let you know for sure in a couple of weeks.
