Remote Participation at ARIN XXIX

Posted: Tuesday, 03 April 2012

ARIN hopes you will join us 22-25 April for ARIN XXIX, but if you can’t make it to Vancouver, we invite you to participate online.  Remote participants are encouraged to 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 XXIX” and select "ARIN XXIX Remote Participant" from the drop-down menu. 

When you register as a remote participant, you should be sure you have a Jabber client and be ready to supply your Jabber Identifier (JID). Your JID will allow you to log in 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.

It is true that there is no need to register is 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.  ARIN believes that remote participants have as much to contribute to the policy process as the in-person attendees. To thank remote participants for taking time out to log in, ask questions, and vote in straw polls, we will be sending verified remote participants an ARIN XXIX t-shirt to thank them for their participation.

All remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) found at:

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 XXIX.  Please contact us at if you have any questions.
