We would like to thank everyone involved in the RIPE NCC
Regional Meeting in Dubai. The event was very successful
and feedback from attendees has been positive. The meeting
has given us a much clearer impression of the IP networking
issues specific to our members in the Middle East region.
The following mailing list has been set up to help continue the
discussions started at the regional meeting in Dubai:
The purpose of the mailing list is to:
- Encourage further discussion of IP networking issues specific
to the Middle East region;
- Provide a forum capable of gathering the input of Local Internet
Registries (LIRs), Network Operators and governments from the
area for future meetings on Internet resource administration in the
- Discuss the possibility of forming a Middle Eastern Operators
Forum or similar group. (Information on the European Operators
Forum, can be found at: http://www.ripe.net/ripe/wg/eof/ ).

automatically been subscribed to the mailing list. To un-subscribe
