The NextGen@ICANN Program
The NextGen@ICANN program remains the same for Meeting A, B and C: it is an education and awareness based experience, designed for a smaller, younger and more region-specific group of participants. Applicants must be between the ages of 18 and 30, live in the region of the meeting and be engaged in some level of higher education, with focus on Internet related subject matter. Each selected member will deliver a 5-10 minute presentation on a topic relevant to the community. Recent presentation topics include Internet governance, DNS and the future of the Internet.
