Whether you plan to participate in the upcoming ICANN meeting in Cartagena remotely or in person, you're invited to a quick reminder of the background and current status of each major policy issue currently under discussion in ICANN.
The ICANN Policy Staff will provide a briefing on Monday 22 November at 14.00 and 20.00 UTC, summarizing policy issues across the different ICANN Supporting Organizations, namely the Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO), Country Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO) and Address Supporting Organization (ASO). Amongst other topics, updates will be provided on:
- Vertical Integration Policy Development Process (GNSO)
- Registration Abuse Policies Recommendations (GNSO)
- Registrar Accreditation Agreement (GNSO)
- WHOIS Studies (GNSO)
- Internationalized Domain Names PDP (ccNSO)
- Delegation and Re-delegation Working Group (ccNSO)
- Global policy for handling IPv4 address space (ASO)
The two sessions are duplicates, scheduled to accommodate different time zones. Each session, scheduled to run for 90 minutes, will be conducted in English only. The meeting will be run in Adobe Connect with a slide presentation along with a dial-in conference bridge for audio.
Participants will have opportunity to ask questions at the end of each session. During the course of the webinar, questions may be submitted using the chat function of Adobe Connect. If you are not able to participate in either of the live sessions, the slides and MP3 will be made available shortly after the meeting. The policy staff is always available to answer any questions that you email to email@example.com.
