The Internet industry's annual iWeek conference, set to run from 10 to 14 September 2012 at Crystal Towers in Cape Town has opened for registration. As usual, attendance at the conference is free and a premier opportunity for both local and global Internet industry players to come together to discuss issues, share experiences and learn.
This year the event promises to be even more informative than before. The joint hosts, the Internet Service Providers' Association (ISPA) and UniForum SA, will be joined by the .ZA Domain Name Authority (ZADNA), the South African chapter of the Internet Society (ISOC- ZA) and the Wireless Access Providers' Association (WAPA). Each of the partners will have dedicated time to present, with some presentations falling into three focused tracks - business, technology and regulatory. Workshop on Internet freedom
"Our conference partners will greatly enrich the content available to delegates, and we are confident that the streaming of presentations into the three tracks will make the conference much more accessible," says Jaap Scholten, co-chair of ISPA.
Some of the conference highlights include presentations and panel discussions from ZADNA and UniForum looking at global and local developments in the domain name space, workshops on Internet freedom in South Africa and next generation Internet, as well as sessions on cyber security.
Other highlights include presentations on SIP peering, wireless communities and license-exempt bands as well as best practices in wireless installation. The annual general meetings of both WAPA and ISPA will also take place.
