This workshop was primarily an information session about Internet Exchange Points in the various regions worldwide; their roles and various sub-committees/bodies.
Those attending were able to find out about latest developments in various regions e.g. in LACNIC (Latin American and Caribbean Region - 3 new IXPs launched in past year - Haiti, and Netherlands Antilles (St. Maarten, Curacao); Re-instatement of IXP in Africa on September 11, 2009)
Benefits of having these IXPs were outlined e.g. cost of transit.
