Candidate Statements and Bios
||Dr. Enkhbat. D|
|Biography not yet available|
||LIANG Ming Cheng|
I am current Executive Director of TWNIC, responsible for ccTLD (.tw) operation and service enhancement, IP resource management, and Internet technology development; as well as continuing interaction and collaboration between TWNIC and the global Internet community.
During late 90’s, I had joined the TANET (Taiwan Academic Network) Project, which was driven by the Ministry of Education to build and develop the largest IP network for the academic community in Taiwan. Continuously, I have involved in the later TANET 2 Project, which is the IPv6-based, next generation TANET.
I have been a committee member of the International Union of Radio Science (URSI) since 1997 and an active senior member of the IEEE since 2002. With my experiences in dealing with IPv6 policy and address allocation / assignment management, I was appointed as the co-Chair of the IPv6 Deployment and Development Program of NICI (National Information and Communication Initiative) of the Executive Yuan in 2005.
Since 2005, I have actively participated in various Internet-related activities, such as IPv6, VoIP, IDN and Internet Governance. Recently, I have been appointed as chair of ccNSO IDN Working Group, and elected to sit on the APNIC Executive Council.
I believe that I will contribute my time, knowledge, resources, and full involvement to DotAsia and its members, and hope it will be beneficial for future development of DotAsia.
