Discussion list

The LACNIC discussion lists are exchange locations in which we aim to facilitate consensus and agreements for the development of the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean. We view discussion lists as the best way to represent and promote the interests of our region. However, we do not negate the value of other participation channels such as chats and periodical physical meetings.


In this list we publish information related to LACNIC’s most important activities such as calls for nominations and elections, presentation of projects, information regarding LACNIC and other important regional meetings, and general topics related to the development of the Internet in Latin America and the Caribbean.

Public Policy

This space is used for the discussion and presentation of proposals for the distribution of Internet resources in Latin America and the Caribbean. This is the starting point for the criteria and rules that LACNIC applies in the allocation of IPv6 and IPv4 Addresses, as well as ASN and their related services.


This list is used to discuss topics specifically related to Internet development in the Caribbean.

IT Women

The purpose of the list is to share information and facilitate networking among women who are part of the technical Internet community of Latin America and the Caribbean. This would include sharing of opportunities for attending and presenting at different events, applying for fellowships, engaging in the governance processes of the region's technical organizations and more. It is also a platform for sharing technical experiences and initiatives led by our colleagues across the region.


In this list we share information related to the FRIDA Program's most important activities such as calls for nominations and presentation of select projects.
