APNIC participating as part of the NRO in the WSIS exhibition

During Phase 2 of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)
in Tunis, 16-18 November 2005, the Number Resource Organization (NRO)
will be participating in the Internet Pavilion at the ICT4all

The Internet Pavilion brings together a number of the key
organisations responsible for both day-to-day management and policy
development in the Internet sphere. Organisations at the Internet
Pavilion will include:

    - Internet Society (ISOC)
    - Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)
    - Number Resource Organization (NRO)
    - Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN)
    - Council of European National Top level Domain Registries (CENTR)
    - London Internet Exchange (LINX)
    - African ISP Association (AfrISPA)

During the week of the ICT4all exhibition, NRO executives and
representatives are keen to meet WSIS participants and exchange
knowledge, experience, and views on Internet activities. NRO
representatives are happy to schedule meetings with participants to
discuss Internet issues in depth. 

Through the Internet Pavilion, we hope to work together with WSIS
participants to promote a greater understanding of existing Internet
governance mechanisms and how these relate to the recommendations of
the Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG) Final Report and wider
WSIS principles.

APNIC is assisting in the NRO's education, communication, and outreach
efforts, which include:

   - Multimedia presentations on RIR history, the NRO, and IP
     addressing and routing
   - An NRO fact sheet available in many languages, including eight
     spoken in the Asia Pacific region
   - Brochures and fact sheets on technical and RIR-specific issues
   - Newsletters, articles, and other documentation

At the Internet Pavilion, co-exhibitors, invited guests, and visitors
will work together to reinforce the very important role that the
Internet has in promoting important areas such as education, economic
development, and knowledge transfer.

The exhibition will take place from 15-19 November at the Kram PalExpo.
