For our in-person attendees, if you’re interested in learning more about ARIN’s Resource Public Key Infrastructure (RPKI) offerings and how it can help secure your resources, we encourage you to attend our ROA-thon on Sunday, 16 April. ARIN experts will help guide your first Route Origin Authorization (ROA) and answer any questions you may have about RPKI. Following the ROA-thon, drop by the ARIN 51 Happy Hour on Sunday evening and say hello to your colleagues. Then, on Monday evening, be a small fish in a big pond at the ARIN 51 social event at the Tampa Bay Aquarium.

The ARIN 51 chat in the Zoom webinar will be monitored to ensure that all of our attendees adhere to the ARIN Participants Expected Standards of Behavior.

For our virtual attendees, ARIN will host our popular Table Topics event on Tuesday, 18 April. With subjects ranging from IPv6 deployment to Internet number resource policy development (and more!), you’ll find plenty to talk about with members of the ARIN Advisory Council, Board of Trustees, ARIN staff, and others.

ARIN 51 Fellowship Program

Internet number resource policy is, like other areas of Internet governance, powered by community participation. To encourage and foster new voices and active members within the ARIN region community, the ARIN Fellowship Program provides a specialized, interactive learning opportunity to individuals interested in these aspects of Internet operations and their professional growth alongside it. Held in a hybrid format — with three virtual sessions leading up to ARIN 51 and the option to attend the meeting either in person or virtually — this program provides the framework for Fellows to dig deeper into discussions related to ARIN’s Policy Development Process and learn about ARIN’s work and services. Fellows will be paired with an ARIN community member mentor to guide them through the program.

The application period for the ARIN 51 Fellowship Program is open until 25 January 2023, and you can apply at
