SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Back to Top

Recognizing the vital importance of the Internet to U.S. innovation, prosperity, education, and political and cultural life, NTIA has made it a top priority to ensure that the Internet remains open for innovation. For example, NTIA is part of a Department-wide Internet Policy Task Force which is identifying leading public policy and operational challenges in the Internet environment. NTIA, working with other U.S. Government agencies, is evaluating the adoption and deployment of Internet Protocol version six (IPv6) addresses for industry and government. A workshop will be held to discuss industry and U.S. Government perspectives. Speakers, panelists, and participants are likely to focus on what is being done to encourage utilization of these resources and to facilitate further public discussion on Internet Protocol version four (IPv4) address resource depletion, and the adoption and deployment of IPv6 addresses.

The agenda for the public workshop will be posted at least one week prior to the workshop on NTIA's Web site at http://www.ntia.doc.gov.

Aneesh Chopra, Chief Technology Officer of the United States, will moderate a panel of industry experts. Vivek Kundra, Chief Information Officer of the United States, will moderate a discussion among Federal agency representatives. NTIA Deputy Assistant Secretary, Anna M. Gomez, will deliver opening remarks, and NTIA Administrator and Assistant Secretary, Lawrence E. Strickling, will deliver closing remarks.
