What is a RIPE Meeting?

A RIPE Meeting takes place over multiple days, bringing together Internet service providers, network operators and other interested parties from around the world to:

  • Participate in discussions about the policies and procedures used by the RIPE NCC to allocate Internet number resources
  • Participate in the RIPE Working Group sessions to discuss current technical and policy issues
  • Share experiences, latest developments and best common practices
  • Develop their network of peers in the Internet community
  • Network during breaks and socials

Each meeting consists of plenary presentations, working group sessions and Birds of a Feather discussions (BoFs).

RIPE Meetings are open to everyone. They bring together people from different backgrounds, cultures, beliefs and genders. The RIPE community is unique and prides itself on providing a safe, supportive and respectful environment.
