Description of selection process
The IPv6 Hall of Fame recognizes a select group of IPv6 Protocol standard designers, Leaders, Evangelists, Promoters and Internet practitioners who have made significant contributions to the development and deployment of IPv6. Read on to find out more about the nomination criteria and requirements. About The Nominations Process Individuals worldwide who have played an extraordinary role in the conceptualization, building, promoting and development of IPv6 globally are considered for nomination into the IPv6 Hall of Fame. In addition to those who have been more visible, the IPv6 Hall of Fame seeks nominees who have made concrete impact on the IPv6 development and deployment behind-the-scenes. Criteria for evaluation include:
  •   Impact: The contribution has made an extraordinary impact on the development or growth of the development of IPv6.
  •   Influence: The contribution, relative to the IPv6 development, has significantly influenced: 1) the work of others in the field; 2) Industry and society at large.
  •   Innovation: The contribution has broken new ground with original thinking/creativity that has established new paradigms, eliminated significant obstacles, or accelerated IPv6 development.
  •   Evangelism: The contribution has significantly pushed forward the development and deployment of IPv6.
  •   Industry: The contribution has made facilitative impact on the practitioners at large as a result of the good effect on changing the industrial eco-system.
There is no requirement for the length of time the nominee has worked in/contributed to the development of IPv6, and nominations can be made posthumously. In addition to completing the nomination form, nominations will not require but would welcome endorsement letters. Nominations are reviewed and screened to ensure they meet the nomination criteria and eligibility. The IPv6 Hall of Fame Advisory Board, is responsible for the final selection of the IPv6 Hall of Famers. If you have any questions about the nominations process, please contact 6HoF-contact@ipv6forum.com
About the IPv6 Hall of Fame

The IPv6 Hall of Fame (IPv6halloffame.com) is a recognition program and virtual museum that celebrates the development of IPv6 and the individuals whose extraordinary contributions have made the progress possible. The IPv6 Hall of Fame was launched by the IPv6 Forum. Dr. Vinton G. CERF stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:“ As you know the Internet Society started an Internet Hall of Fame to recognise pioneers, connectors and contributors to the Internet technology and growth, but now I think it’s time to recognise those who led the path to IP version 6 which uses a much larger address space to deal with the challenges of Internet of Things and an increasing user population” Prof. Wu HequanMr. Wu Hequan stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:“ IPv6 has become the most appropriate solution because of the internationalisation of the standard and its maturity. China introduced 15 years ago the large scale CNGI project to study, research and implement IPv6. The Chinese government introduced a plan back in Noember 2017 to deploy IPv6 on a larger scale and made remarkable progress. As the biggest Internet country, China should make a contribution in the development of IPv6. We are willing to work with other countries to promote the deployment of IPv6” Dr. Jun MuraiDr. Jun Murai stated during the launch of the IPv6 Hall of Fame in Nanjing in November 2018:“ I remember when we started to discuss about IPng ( IP Next Generation) and IPv6 from the early 90’ies and I remember many people who have been devoting their time on the design, development and deployment of IPv6. In that sense, the IPv6 Hall of Fame is a great idea to promote their efforts and identify their great contributions to the Internet and also to support the future of IPv6 deployment which is of course very important for the future of the Internet.”
