During the ARIN PPC at NANOG 64, we will provide remote participation options, including a webcast, live transcript and chat rooms. The PPC Discussion Guide is also now available.
The live transcript will record the presentations and discussions from the meeting floor, so you can read along to enhance your webcast viewing. There will also be a variety of chat room options available to registered remote participants. Remote registration is free.
ARIN makes all the materials used during the meeting available on its website. Closer to the meeting, you will be able to download a copy of the discussion guide, including the text of the proposals under discussion, the most recent version of the Number Resource Policy Manual and the Policy Process.
We strongly encourage you to log in to both chat rooms before the
meeting begins to test this functionality so that you can participate
fully when the meeting starts. Please see the details below about
registering for remote participation and setting up your XMPP client of
choice before this time.
Due to recent changes in some browsers, most especially the latest versions of Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, there are some steps you may need to take to view the live transcript. The live transcript currently requires Java to be enabled in your browser, and if it's not enabled, you will need to follow the steps provided here to view the live transcript.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will be working towards a better solution in the future.
Copies of presentations and meeting materials are available on the ARIN website.
The chat rooms are for the express use of remote participants. You must
register as a remote participant and register your Jabber ID (JID) in
order to submit comments and questions and vote in straw polls. Chat
Rooms will open before the meeting begins. Please note that all times listed on the agenda are Pacific Time.
Onfirstname.lastname@example.org: In this chat, moderated by representatives from the Advisory Council (AC), you will be able to ask questions for inclusion in the policy discussions. Questions will be entered into the discussion alternately with the microphone queues on the meeting floor.
Handsemail@example.com: When the chair poses a question, a moderator will submit it to the chat room, and participants will be given an opportunity to "raise their hands." The poll count will be included as part of the vote count in the meeting record and provided to the AC for use in its deliberations.
Please note: There is a variable time delay between actual events at the meeting venue and the webcast. Although the channel monitor will inform the chat room that the presenter has asked for questions, you should ask your question as soon as you can.
Remote participants need to do two things to participate in the ARIN
meeting chat rooms. ARIN supports the XMPP protocol for chat – XMPP is
also known as Jabber. You must select and install a client, and then
register yourself as a XMPP user on the XMPP server of your choice. Once
these two actions are complete, you will able to register as a remote
participant and be active in the chat sessions. If you already use XMPP,
be sure to enter your JID when you submit your registration.
There are a number of options available for installing XMPP clients
including using a stand-alone client for desktop or mobile devices or
using a web browser-based client. The majority of users choose to
install a client on their own computer.
There is a listing of clients available at that are available at http://xmpp.org/xmpp-software/clients/. Most of the clients on that list are free to install and use. At
ARIN, most staff members use Pidgin on Windows and Linux; the Mac users
rely on Adium or iChat. We are highly familiar with these clients, and
recommend their use.
If you don't want to install any clients or
plug-ins on your machine, you can setup an account on websites like
jwchat.org . Just setup an account and log in! As an added bonus, by
registering on a website, you now have your Jabber ID (JID) and you can
skip the next step.
Once you have selected your XMPP client, you will need to register with a
XMPP server to get a Jabber ID (JID). Your JID is required on the
remote participation registration form so you can log in to the
restricted meeting chats. A list of available services at https://xmpp.net/directory.php. Your resulting JID should look like an email address. For example, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that we have had issues with Google IDs in the past, and
we cannot guarantee interoperability if you chose to register using

All registered remote participants are subject to the Remote Participation Acceptable Use Policy (AUP). Registration is not required to view the webcast or the live transcript.
Please be sure to register your Jabber ID (JID) before the meeting
begins. We will make every effort to add late remote registrations at
the next scheduled meeting break, but we strongly encourage you to
pre-register to make sure you don't miss out on any of the action.
Please make sure you register as a remote participant and supply your
JID in time to participate.
Each XMPP client has a different process to join rooms, so you should
consult your specific client documentation for details. In many of the
clients, each room is defined as a "group". The two things you will need
to know are the group name and server. The group names are referenced
above under "Chat Information." These groups will be on the
