Tomorrow is a big day - the Internet Society has organized World IPv6 Launch Day as a day "to motivate organizations across the industry...to prepare for and permanently enable Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) on their products and services as Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) address space runs out." In support of this lofty (and necessary) goal, the Internet2 community has organized Megaconference v6, in what we hope will be the biggest IPv6 videoconference ever. Institutions from around the world have contributed time and resources to this event, including OARnet, NDSU, AARnet, the University of Helsinki, MAGPI, ARNES, CEN, and the University of Wisconsin Extension.

While pre-registration is now closed, there is still time for you to participate! Anyone with a standards based (H.323 or SIP) videoconferencing endpoint or software can dial in. Use of IPv6 is encouraged and will help us meet our goal, but everyone is encouraged to join, even if you must use IPv4. Dialing information for your region is available on the official website. We will also be streaming the event on this site if you'd prefer to view the event that way.

We have a great program of presenters lined up, and I hope to see as many people as possible there!
