The RIPE Diversity Task Force is looking for local network operator groups, hacker spaces, computer science students and other Internet-focused groups from the local area to take part and share local perspectives with the RIPE community.
The RIPE community will be calling Marseille home for five days next year. RIPE 76 takes place on 14-18 May 2018 at the Palais du Pharo. Upwards of 600+ people from all over the world will meet to share best practices, discuss the latest technical developments affecting the Internet, debate the merits of policy that affect network operations and more.
