The RIPE NCC hosts Roundtable Meetings to discuss Internet management issues relevant to government, regulators and industry partners. The agenda generally includes presentations relating to IP address management policy-making, Internet governance and RIPE NCC technical activities.
The last was a joint event with CENTR, the European country code TLD organisation, held in Brussels on 1 October 2014. The meeting was attended by around 100 representatives of government, national regulators and industry.
The list of previous Roundtable Meetings is also available.
These meetings keep governments and regulators informed on current issues surrounding the governance and operation of the Internet, including:
- IPv6 adoption
- Depletion of the IPv4 address pool
- Registration of Internet resource data, including Internet resource certification
- Internet statistics and analysis
- Internet governance
