ICANN69: Registration and Meeting Schedule Access

12 October 2020
By Ashwin Rangan

As you may have read in my earlier blog, ICANN69 is rapidly approaching, and we have made several changes to enhance and secure the meeting sessions.

One of the new requirements is that everyone must register for ICANN69 in order to view the schedule and participation links within the event website. We developed a new tool to implement this change, which connects several of our meeting platforms. The complexity of linking these systems together has created some delay between registration and gaining access to the schedule. We are working with the concerned service provider to resolve these issues.

You can now sign up directly from the event website for immediate access to the schedule.

We apologize to anyone who had trouble gaining access to the schedule. Please register early and sign up to attend sessions.

Please be aware that some Chrome users have reported difficulty opening the registration link after signing into their ICANN account. Such users are forced into a loop, in which they are directed to the homepage repeatedly. This is due to changes in the way Chrome manages third-party cookies. If you experience this issue, use Chrome “incognito mode” or try another browser. Our service provider is actively working to resolve this issue.

Additionally, we have received several requests to make the agenda available to those who have not registered. A PDF of the full schedule has been posted on the event website homepage for unrestricted access. Users must still sign in to participate and view session participation links.

If you experience any difficulty registering for ICANN69, please contact our team for assistance.
