Remote Participation at ARIN XXVIII

Posted: Thu, 18 August 2011

ARIN hopes to see you on 12-14 October for ARIN XXVIII, but if you can’t make it to Philadelphia, we invite you to join us remotely.  Remote participants may contribute to policy discussions and other meeting sessions as part of ARIN’s on-going effort to create a community-wide open forum.

In order to participate remotely, you must register for the meeting. To register for free, visit Click “Register for ARIN XXVIII” and select "ARIN XXVIII Remote Participant" from the drop-down menu. 

Before you register as a remote participant, you will need a Jabber client and a Jabber Identifier (JID). Your JID will allow you to login to the meeting chat rooms.  For all the details visit:

Before the meeting, be sure to check the schedules for remote participation and don’t forget to download the meeting materials which will be available online. The meeting program, discussion guide, and other supporting documents will help you to follow along.

Registration is not required to view the webcast or live transcript, but as a registered remote participant, you will be able to submit comments during normal question and answer periods and “raise your hand” to be counted during polling. All remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Complete information about remote participation is available at on the remote participation page of our website.

Whether you plan to be on-site or can only take part remotely, we look forward to your participation at ARIN XXVIII.  Please contact us at if you have any questions.
