> SAO PAULO BRAZIL – 19 October 2010 – The Internet Society today 
> announced the first meeting of the Network Operators Group of Latin 
> America and the Caribbean (LACNOG <http://www.lacnog.org/en>), taking 
> place in Sao Paulo 19 to 22 October 2010. The event will convene 
> technologist and operational experts from leading Internet providers, 
> equipment manufactures, organizations responsible for Internet 
> coordination and the academic networking community and will provide a 
> forum for the discussion and exchange of information on key 
> operational issues impacting the Internet in the region.
> Christian O’ Flaherty, Internet Society Regional Development Manager 
> for Latin America, commented: “There was a need for a pan-regional 
> network operators group in Latin America so the Internet Society 
> worked together with the Internet community in the region to make it 
> happen. We look forward to advancing information sharing and the 
> discussions of mutual opportunities and threats to the industry in the 
> region.”
> The event will for the first time bring together people in the region 
> responsible for the creation, maintenance and operation of Internet 
> networks and provides a forum for discussion, coordination, and the 
> exchange of best practices between networking professionals. The event 
> is co-located with related events: the Latin American and Caribbean 
> Internet Addresses Registry meeting, LACNIC XIV <http://lacnic.net/>, 
> which includes its Public Policy Forum, and the Forum of the Brazilian 
> Autonomous System Networks (PTT Forum 2010), organized by the 
> Brazilian Network Information Center (NIC.br 
> <http://isoc.org/wp/newsletter/NIC.br>).
> The Internet Society, as part of its Regional Development program, 
> strives to advance the Internet landscape in emerging Internet regions 
> and the collaborations that create the right environment for the 
> Internet to flourish. In the case of the LACNOG event, the Internet 
> Society convened together a broad range of Latin American 
> organizations to deliver the inaugural event. The program committee, 
> comprising individuals from Internet companies, coordinating bodies, 
> and academia in Latin America, issued a regional and international 
> Call for Presentations and selected the most topical and relevant to 
> the region to create the agenda. The resulting programme 
> <http://www.lacnog.org/en/meetings/lacnog-2010/agenda-lacnog-2010> will give 
> participants the opportunity to dive into key areas, such as IPv6 
> deployment, Security, Mobile, and traffic exchange issues that affect 
> the industry. Additional sessions will cover interesting and relevant 
> topics including case studies relating to Emergency Recovery following 
> Earthquakes in Chile and Haiti and DNSSEC deployment.
> The staging of the first LACNOG event and the creation of a pan Latin 
> American Network Operators community will be further strengthened 
> through additional meetings and online discussions.
