I hope this post is somewhat on-charter :)
I'd like to extend an invitation (to those of you based in, near or just
passing through Melbourne) to a public talk by Mr Geoff Huston next week,
hosted by the Centre for Advanced Internet Architectures at Swinburne
University of Technology.
Title: "Beyond IPv4"
Abstract: An exploration of the issues relating to the imminent exhaustion
of the Internet's IPv4 space and the Internet's continued
refusal to embrace IPv6.
Date: July 10th 2008
Location: Lecture Theatre EN615, Engineering (EN) Building, Hawthorn Campus
RSVP: Please contact Ms Li Sim Loh (LLoh at groupwise.swin.edu.au) by
July 9th if you are planning on joining us. There will be
tea and coffee immediately after the talk.
Background: On Monday, 16 June 2008, APNIC's chief scientist, Geoff Huston,
spoke at the OECD ministerial meeting about the exhaustion of the
free pool of IPv4 addresses. This is predicted to occur in January 2011,
give or take a few months. When it does happen, it will be impossible
for any new Internet address space to be allocated under the existing
technology of IPv4. Geoff has previously been Chief Scientist within
Telstra's Internet program (during the late 1990s) and Technical Manager
of the Australian Academic and Research Network from 1989 to 1995.
