We have been having a discussion in the Diversity about this.   
Some stats that I have for Latin America:
8 newcomers signed up for Internet Draft Review teams
1 newcomer participating in IPPM
But, that is only what I know via personal information.  I don't know how to do this automatically.   I suspect that these newcomers are not likely to get funding to participate in Berlin.  But, we can get them to be active on email lists (as a start).

BTW… if there’s a way to keep track and measure that additional active participation from Latin America I’ll be happy to do it.

I’m open to suggestions on how it can be than.
