Workshop Number: 87

Title: IPv6 Around The World: Surveying the Current and Future Deployment of IPv6

Concise Description:
IPv6 adoption is an issue of central importance in Internet governance discussions, and recent years have brought us to a point where major networks in both the developed and developing world have deployed or are planning to soon deploy IPv6. The momentum towards a v6-enabled Internet is now irresistible.

There remain concerns, however, about lack of access to information and education about IPv6, and the potential for this to disadvantage stakeholders in developing regions. The aim of this workshop is to showcase some of the ways in which IPv6 is already being successfully employed in a variety of networks throughout the world, as well as discussing ways in which all stakeholders can ensure that they have the information and access that they need to be part of the IPv6 Internet.
