In its continuing effort to supply the community with as open a forum as
possible, ARIN is offering individuals who can't attend the meeting in
person the an additional opportunity to participate remotely. As at
previous meetings, ARIN will be offering a webcast of the Public Policy
meeting via RealMedia and multicast feeds that are available to any
interested individual. New for this meeting will be the opportunity for
those not in attendance to post questions and comments to be addressed in
the course of the normal question and answer periods throughout the
agenda. For this meeting, it will be a test of the process, allowing ARIN
to judge the interest in remote participation and receive feedback and
experience. With the knowledge gained from this effort, ARIN will continue
to evaluate the best methods to use to provide opportunities for remote

This method of interactively participating in the meeting will only be
available to those who have not registered to attend the meeting in person
and will only be open during the Public Policy Meeting. Comments received
from remote participants will be moderated and presented to the meeting
during the normal question and answer periods. ARIN will be using a
service called WebEx to provide the interactive portion of the remote
participation effort for this test. ARIN staff has successfully evaluated
WebEx with MacOS, Linux, and Windows-based clients for compatibility.  The
essential component is that these clients have Java-enabled browsers.

For additional information about the interactive participation via WebEx
and or about the RealMedia (provided by Merit) and multicast (provided by
Univ. of Oregon) webcast of the Public Policy Meeting, please see the ARIN
website at:

webmaster at arin.net with "Remote Participation" as the subject by Tuesday,

As the WebEx service requires the installation of a remote client, it is
recommended that you complete the steps outlined in the invitation at

will enable you to download any components you may require to participate
before the actual start of the meeting.  If you need technical support,
