During Phase 2 of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), to 
be held in Tunis November 16-18 2005, ARIN will be participating with 
the Number Resource Organization (NRO) in the "Internet Pavilion" at the 
ICT4all exhibition.

The Internet Pavilion brings together a number of the key organizations 
responsible for both day-to-day management and policy development in the 
Internet sphere. Organizations at the Internet Pavilion will include the 
Internet Society (ISOC), the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the 
Number Resource Organization (NRO), the Internet Corporation for 
Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN), the Council of European National Top 
level Domain Registries (CENTR), the London Internet Exchange (LINX), 
and the African ISP Association (AfrISPA).

The purpose of the Internet Pavilion is to help WSIS participants 
understand how the existing governance mechanisms work and how these 
mechanisms relate to the findings of the Working Group on Internet 
Governance (WGIG) Final Report and the WSIS principles in general. The 
Internet Pavilion will facilitate an understanding of why a 
collaborative and cooperative governance model is essential to the 
success of the Internet and the roll out of the Information Society in 
the future.

ARIN is assisting in the NRO's education, communication, and outreach 
efforts, which include multimedia presentations on RIR History, the NRO, 
and IP addressing and routing, and paper collateral such as an NRO fact 
sheet, a technical one-sheet, and RIR-specific fact sheets, newsletters, 
articles, and other documentation.

The Internet Pavilion will act as a medium through which the 
co-exhibitors and invited guests will reinforce the very important role 
that the Internet has in promoting education, economic development, 
knowledge transfer, etc.

The exhibition will take place from 15-19 November at the Kram PalExpo.
