The American Registry for Internet Numbers (ARIN), a nonprofit association that manages the distribution of Internet number resources, announced today that its 25th public policy meeting, ARIN XXV, will be held April 18-21, 2010, at the InterContinental Toronto Centre in Toronto, Ontario. The meeting provides the Internet community a chance to discuss IPv6 policy, IP addressing trends, and the challenges of IPv6 adoption.

“The Internet has become an irreplaceable part of how consumers and businesses communicate,” said John Curran, president and CEO of ARIN. “With less than 8% of IPv4 addresses still available, our mission is to consider any policy changes necessary for this transition to occur smoothly, and to continue discussions about this important issue. ARIN XXV will include important discussions on draft address allocation policy proposals, including several proposed changes that may affect IPv6 adoption.”
