ICANN83 Policy Forum Location Announced

11 June 2024

Today, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced that Prague, Czech Republic, has been selected as the location for the ICANN83 Policy Forum. The event will be held from 9–12 June 2025 at the Prague Congress Center.

ICANN holds three Public Meetings each calendar year in different regions around the world. ICANN Public Meetings are an essential element of ICANN's multistakeholder model and provide a venue to progress policy work, conduct outreach, exchange best practices, conduct business, and interact with other members of the ICANN community, Board, and organization.

These meetings, typically comprised of more than 100 different sessions, are an important opportunity for individuals and representatives from ICANN's various stakeholder groups to discuss issues related to the ICANN policy-development process. Participants may attend either in-person or remotely. Meetings are free to attend and open to everyone.

More Information


ICANN's mission is to help ensure a stable, secure, and unified global Internet. To reach another person on the Internet, you need to type an address – a name or a number – into your computer or other device. That address must be unique so computers know where to find each other. ICANN helps coordinate and support these unique identifiers across the world. ICANN was formed in 1998 as a nonprofit public benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
