IPv6 Summit in Denver Prepares Industry for Transition
(DENVER) – The Rocky Mountain Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) Task Force (RMv6TF), in conjunction with Regional North America IPv6 Task Forces, announced it will host the 2013 North American IPv6 Summit technology conference for the sixth year in a row on April 17-19, 2013 at the Grand Hyatt in Denver, Colorado.
The largest IPv6 conference in North America this year, the summit will host more than 500 IPv6 networking professionals including technology leaders, systems architects, engineers and researchers. This career-enhancing event will help attendees master the transition to IPv6, offer IPv6 certification, and ensure network professionals stay relevant and ahead of the curve in their profession through the next 10 years. The educational event includes an optional pre-conference tutorial session and a 2-day general session on IPv6 related topics.
“With the ever-growing number of devices connected to the Internet, the transition to IPv6 is critical. The Internet’s continued growth and need for more IP addresses ensures us that IPv6 is the key to the continued economic growth,” said Scott Hogg, Chair-Emeritus, RMv6TF
“The speaker lineup includes a diverse number of presentations and demonstrations from IPv6 professionals and exhibitors with practical information and real experience. Students are encouraged to submit an abstract based on forward-thinking research and development that showcases current and future IPv6 topics no later than March 1, 2013. One submission will be selected by a panel of IPv6 experts and invited to attend the conference and present their research to colleagues and leaders in the industry. Additionally, the selected speaker will receive a stipend from RMv6TF.”
Registration for the conference is open and early bird rates apply through the end of February.
