ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe to enable attendees from around the world to participate in person. ICANN 46 is being held on 7-11 April 2013 at Beijing, China.
Whether you plan to participate in the upcoming ICANN meeting in Beijing remotely or in person, you’re invited to an update on the background and current status of major policy issues which are likely to be discussed during the Beijing Meeting.
The ICANN Policy Staff will provide a briefing on Thursday 21 March at 12.00 UTC and Thursday 21 March at 19.00 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:
- WHOIS related activities
- The locking of a domain name subject to UDRP Proceedings
- Protection of IGO and INGO Names
- IDN ccNSO PDP
- Study Group on Use of Names for Countries and Territories
- SSAC report on Domain Name Registration Data Validation Taxonomy
The webinar will cover other topics which will be raised during or otherwise relevant to the Beijing Meeting. In addition, staff will provide a briefing on the ALAC‘s activities related to current policy development issues of the Supporting Organizations.
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 the 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 recording of the session will be made available shortly after the meeting. The policy staff is always available to answer any questions that you email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
