Nominees for Chair

Izumi Okutani

I have been participating in the APNIC forum since 2000 as a part of my role of Policy Liaison in JPNIC, as well as an interested individual in address management and Internet developments in the APNIC region.

I have also been involved in operations of JPNIC's own address management forum, JPNIC Open Policy Forum, which has given me experiences to be familiar with both an NIR and APNIC fora, and to coordinating discussions between the two fora. Based on these experiences, I have been serving as the Chair of NIR SIG from APNIC 19 in 2005.

I believe we are now at the stage where APNIC and NIRs needs more collaboration on how Internet Registries can play a role to contribute to the operations on the Internet after the exhaustion of IPv4 addresses, for example, in areas such as assisting in maintaining the integrity of routing, and promoting IPv6 deployment in the Asia Pacific region.

I would like to contribute in running the future NIR SIG as a forum for information exchanges and collaboration between APNIC and NIRs, keeping these specific issues in mind.


Nominees for Co-Chair

Jessica Shen

I joined China Internet Network Information Center (CNNIC) in 2004. Currently, I'm the leader of IP group, in charge of IP address allocation, member service and business cooperation. Seven years' working with IP related affairs gives me actual experiences on network operation, IP address management, IP policy, and NIR operation.

With the depletion of IPv4, I have been involved in IPv6 transition activities of CNNIC recently two years, such as IPv6 allocation promotion in China, IPv4 & IPv6 policy suggestions for the government, IPv6 transition trainings for CNNIC IP address members, and IPv6 transition PR.

I have participated in APNIC meetings since 2007. I would like to participate more and do some contribution in the Asia Pacific Region in future.
