We hope to see you at ARIN 31 in Bridgetown, Barbados on 21-24 April, but for those of you unable to attend in person, we invite you to participate online. ARIN offers a number of features that allow remote participants to contribute to policy discussions and other meeting sessions as part of our commitment to providing a community-wide, open forum.
In order to participate remotely, you must complete your free registration. Visit https://www.arin.net/ARIN-31/, select "Register for ARIN 31," then select "ARIN 31 Remote Participant" from the drop-down menu.
Just as with previous ARIN meetings, you will need a Jabber client and we will need your Jabber Identifier (JID) when you register. Your JID will give you access to the ARIN 31 chat rooms. For details, visit:
ARIN considers in-person and remote participants to be equal contributors to to the Policy Development Process. Registered remote participants may submit comments during normal question and answer periods and "raise their hand" to be counted during polling. To thank remote participants for taking time out to log in, asking questions, and voting in straw polls, ARIN will be sending verified remote participants an ARIN travel mug to thank them for their participation.
If you cannot register for ARIN 31 remote participation for any reason, you may still view the webcast or live transcript on the ARIN website during general session hours. We'll be sure to remind you before the meeting to check the schedules for remote participation and download the meeting materials. The discussion guide and Number Resource Policy Manual (NRPM) will help you to follow along with proceedings, but be sure to check out the other great online resources we have compiled about new services and hot topics in the Internet technical community. Note that all remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP) found at:
Whether you attend in person or remotely, we look forward to your participation at ARIN 31. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
