DNS Week is a four-day week of events organized by LACTLD(1) and .PR Top Level Domain (Manager of .PR) that will take place in San Juan, Puerto Rico, from August 20th to 23rd, 2019. Within the framework of .PR Top Level Domain’s 30th Anniversary, the initiative aims to bring together the Caribbean ccTLD (Country Code Top-Level Domain) community with stakeholders and representatives from the regional Internet ecosystem in order to address and discuss different topics related to the Domain Name System (DNS).

The DNS Week will begin with an IPv6 training hosted by .PR Top Level Domain and the Internet Society Puerto Rico Chapter. This first event will take place on August 20-21 and it will be opened to all interested parties. The LAC DNS Forum will be the second event held during the DNS Week, on August 22. The Forum, organized jointly by ICANN, LACNIC, Internet Society, Public Interest Registry, .PR Top Level Domain, and LACTLD, will be focused on issues related to the domain name industry and its commercial opportunities. Stakeholders from the industry, the technical community and the Internet policy field are invited to participate.

The DNS Week will close with a training for regional Top Level Domain registries, on August 23. Organizations and stakeholders interested in learning and discussing the different issues that affect the Domain Name System are invited to participate in the DNS Week and share their regional perspectives and experiences.
