The UK IPv6 Task Force, in conjunction with RIPE and the European IST IPv6 Cluster, is presenting a programme of IPv6 events from 23rd-24th September 2004.

IPv6, the new version of the basic Internet Protocol upon which all Internet communications run, has now reached maturity in the standardisation processes within the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF). As a result, leading router and systems vendors are delivering commercially supported IPv6 products. These products have allowed a number of national and international networks to deploy production support for IPv6 communications in their backbones, including, but not limited to, many academic research networks.

The UK IPv6 Deployment Conference is targeted at those interested in the current state of play in IPv6 deployment. It aims to present an overview of state-of-the-art in the latest IPv6 deployment technology, including:

The Conference is co-located with the 49th RIPE Meeting of 20th-24th September, at which Europe's ISPs will gather to discuss technology and policy.

We have scheduled a free European IST IPv6 Cluster meeting on the afternoon before the UK IPv6 Deployment Conference to allow our delegates the opportunity of attending an attractive, fuller one-and-a-half day programme of leading edge IPv6 talks and discussion should they wish to do so:

14:00-18:00: European IST IPv6 Cluster meeting, Michelangelo Room

Each topic will be followed by an open debate.

Friday 24th September:
