The RIPE BoF first met at the RIPE 61 Meeting in Rome.
About 50 people attended the first session on Thursday evening. During the week, many people expressed interest in IPv6 access issues and this was the first topic chosen for discussion.
Andy Davidson, EIX WG Co-Chair, chaired the BoF. Marco Hogewoning, IPv6 WG Co-Chair, spoke briefly about his IPv6 CPE Survey.
Dave Wilson from HEAnet reported on his effort to convince the academic community to deploy IPv6 on campus networks.
Both topics sparked plenty of discussion, and many people participated in the talks. The BoF was a success and will be repeated at future RIPE Meetings.
