An upcoming workshop will give the Caribbean and Latin American Internet community a valuable opportunity to better understand the complex workings of the global Internet. Hosted by the Latin American and Caribbean Internet Addresses Registry (LACNIC), the workshop will give operators, service providers, regulators, entrepreneurs, students an opportunity to learn more about the latest technology and telecommunications related issues being addressed in the region.
Called LACNIC Caribbean on the Move, the event forms part of an upcoming technology summit held at the Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Paramaribo on July 3 to 4.
"LACNIC would also like to listen closely to the interests and concerns of the Surinamese Internet community, to ensure that we always remain accessible to members and clients of all kinds," said Kevon Swift, LACNIC External Relations Officer for the Caribbean.
Established in Uruguay in 2002, LACNIC is one of the five regional Internet registries that exist worldwide. It is an international non-government organisation responsible primarily for managing Internet numbering resources for Latin America and the Caribbean.
LACNIC Caribbean on the Move is a series of events through which the registry raises awareness of important issues, and listens to the community's experiences in fostering open, stable and secure Internet development.
Including all stakeholders in the wider Latin American and Caribbean region is an important part of LACNIC’s mission, which is to ensure that the regional Internet serves our social, economic and cultural development.
The upcoming event also provides an opportunity to learn more about LACNIC’s work within Latin America and the Caribbean.
Attending LACNIC Caribbean on the move is free, but space is limited so pre-registration is required. Event and registration information are available at LACNIC's official website.
