IPv6 Transition Conference (Final Count Down to IPv4 Exhaustion in 2011)
 Chairman :  Ma Yan, Miwa Fujii, Kenny Huang, Che-Hoo CHENG, Tony Hill
  (Jointly organized by APAN, APIPv6TF and IPv6World.Asia)

 Members :  Ma Yan, Miwa Fujii, Kenny Huang, Che-Hoo CHENG, Tony Hill

 Objectives :  

IPv4 address exhaustion is running up rapidly. Simultaneously, IPv6 deployment is also accelerating but we need to increase this momentum, as the IPv4 address free pool will most likely exhaust at Regional Internet Registries (RIRs) by the end of 2011. APNIC has been allocated eight (8) /8 from Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA) in 2010 which is the largest number of allocations among RIRs. At the brink of IPv4 address exhaustion, the APNIC region is showing the strongest Internet growth.

The APNIC region can orchestrate efforts to make a smooth transition to IPv6 and showcase rapid IPv6 deployment. APRICOT-APAN 2011 will be the last major opportunity to have a large scale IPv6 conference prior to the IPv4 address exhaustion. APAN, APIPv6TF and IPv6World.Asia have worked together to develop a full day conference focused on IPv6 on 22/02/2011 as part of the APRICOT-APAN 2011 conference track program.

This conference will provide our audience with an opportunity to prioritize while we transition to IPv6.
