6DISS Workshop in Bulgaria
  University of Plovdiv
  27-29th of June, 2007

  6DISS, SEEREN, BREN and University of Plovdiv are organizing
  an IPv6 workshop, which will locate at the campus of the University
  of Plovdiv, 11th auditorium from 27th to 29th of June, 2007.

The 6DISS project with the cooperation of Bulgarian Research and Educational Network and University of Plovdiv are co-organizing the 2nd South-East Europe IPv6 Training Workshop in Plovdiv (Bulgaria) on 27th to 29th of June, 2007. 

What does it mean “IPv6”?
The Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) is expected to overcome the limitations of the today Internet. The Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) forms the basis of the Internet and allows devices to communicate over diverse networks. Even though, IPv4 has been extremely successful, the continuous growth of the global Internet requires that the overall architecture evolves. IPv6, the new version of the Internet Protocol, is developed by the IETF to cope with the evolving communication needs. IPv6 is designed to support increasing numbers of users, new applications and services and to allow for the Internet expansion. It provides practically unlimited address space, built-in mobility and security support, easy configuration of end systems, enhanced multicast features, etc, that could be used for deploying a ubiquitous network, where end-users could be connected at any time, from any location, with any device to the global Internet.

Who should attend the training?
The SEE IPv6 Training Workshop is being addressed to people that operate research or commercial networks or develop new advanced applications. All participants should have good understanding of the IPv4 protocols and technologies. Prior knowledge of IPv6 is not a strict requirement but all participants should at least follow the 6DISS E-learning training module. Also refer to past 6DISS workshops 

What is the training plan?
For three consecutive days, IPv6 experts will give technical presentations on IPv6-related technologies, such as transitions mechanisms, routing protocols, and applications. In addition to the theoretical sessions, hands-on training will be given at the local PC lab. Participants will be asked to complete simple technical exercises and create a small IPv6-enabled network, and use some of the available applications. After the end of the training, participants should be able to build an IPv6 testbed on their own in parallel to their IPv4 production network and connect it with an IPv6 upstream Internet provider.
