ICANN Publishes ICANN60 By the Numbers Report

icann60_logoToday [20 Dec], ICANN published the ICANN60 By the Numbers report, which includes technical, demographic, and attendance statistics. This report summarizes our findings from ICANN‘s second Annual General Meeting of the new meeting strategy. This report is part of ICANN‘s commitment to transparency.

By the Numbers Report highlights include:

  • 1,929 checked-in participants, with 718 listing their region as APAC
  • 23% of attendees participating for the first time
  • 407 sessions held, for a total of 696 hours
  • 84,955 schedule website page views
  • 116.6 terabytes of data as network traffic
  • 13% of network traffic was Interrnet Protocol version 6 (IPv6), a 3% increase from ICANN58 Copenhagen

Our goal is to improve on the statistics we collect, and to look for trends by comparing meeting data over time. Learning about trends gives us greater insights into how we are meeting the needs of attendees, and informs the kinds of changes we need to make.

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 not-for-profit public-benefit corporation with a community of participants from all over the world.
