Australia Korea New Zealand Broadband Summit

There is a series of three in Australian in early December 2006:

Australian IPv6 Summit 2006, Canberra, 4-6 December 2006:
Internet Protocol Version 6 is already being deployed by Australian trading and defence partners in Asia, America and Europe. Ipv6 has the potential for enhanced mobility, easier management, built-in security and an almost unlimited range of new Internet addresses for next-generation devices... The IPv6 Summit offers two days of International and Australian experts addressing these questions and more, plus a new technology showcase and an optional one-day IPv6 Deployment Workshop, a hands-on guide to easy implementation.
Australian Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference 2006, Melbourne, 4-6 December 2006:
... bringing together telecommunication researchers and students with equipment providers, user groups, regulators and infrastructure planners.

Key themes are:

* Broadband delivery and evolution
* Wireless sensor networks research and applications ...
Australia-Korea-New Zealand Broadband Summit, Adelaide, 7-8 December 2006:
... gathers the information technology and communications ministers and leaders within the broadband industry from Korea, New Zealand and Australia to encourage international collaboration in broadband. ... forum for telecommunications carriers, electronics companies, research organisations, telecommunications equipment providers, broadband applications and services developers to discuss and negotiate business and research interests across the three countries.
Unfortunately, unless you already had broadband you may never hear of these events. The Department of Communications, Information Technology and the Arts decided to send out the details of them in a 1.9Mbyte mail message with PDF attachments. This is one thousand times larger than it need be and makes the message much harder to read. There are much more efficient and effective ways to communicate on-line.
