The fourth Slovenian IPv6 summit, which will continue its technical agenda, will be held in Ljubljana on 23 and 24 November 2010. Once again, we expect representatives from most leading Slovenian operators, providers and developers of IT services and infrastructure, as well as from relevant ministries and agencies, to attend.
The keynote speaker at the summit will be Patrik Fältström, Senior Consulting Engineer with Cisco Systems, who has been involved with Internet standards since 1989. He is an appointed advisor to the Swedish IT Minister since 2003, covering among other areas the introduction of IPv6. He is also active in several international working groups, including: IETF, IAB, ISOC, ICANN …
The technical panel discussion, which will be the high point of the summit, will be chaired by Daniel Karrenberg, a pioneer of the Internet in Europe and chief scientist at RIPE NCC, which is responsible for coordinating activities needed for the global operation of the Internet. Daniel attended the previous IPv6 summit via videoconferencing.
On the first day of the summit, which is being organised by Arnes, the Go6 institute and theLaboratory for Telecommunications Faculty of Electrical Engineering in Ljubljana (LTFE), two professional workshops will take place concurrently. The first, on IPv6 routing, will be led by Matjaž Straus Istenič (Arnes) and Janez Sterle (LTFE), while the second, on the topic of IPv4 and IPv6 coexistence, transition concepts and mechanisms, will run under the 6deploy programme. On the second day we will hear from the keynote speaker, Patrik Fältström. This will be followed by technical talks, where once again we can expect contributions from leading Slovenian and foreign networking systems experts. The summit will close with a technical debate chaired by Daniel Karrenberg. For more information on the event, visit the Go6 website.
