ICANN WEBINAR: Cross Community Working Group (CWG) On IANA Naming Related Functions: Current Progress and Key Issues

ICANN logoFollowing the request of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) for ICANN to “convene a multistakeholder process to develop a plan to transition the U.S. government stewardship role” with regard to the IANA Functions and related root zone management, a Cross Community Working Group (CWG-Stewardship) was formed with the purpose of developing a consolidated transition proposal for the elements of the IANA Functions relating to domain names.

Since its last webinars on 3-4 December 2014, the CWG-Stewardship has received and reviewed nearly [60] public comments, and has continued to work on preparing its proposal for transition, including during an intensive work weekend on 10-11 January. The CWG-Stewardship is also in the process of reviewing its timeline for submission of a proposal to the IANA Stewardship Transition Coordination Group (ICG). The CWG-Stewardship will present substantial information regarding current progress as well as the key issues under consideration, in order to provide the community a preview in advance of further detailed work during the ICANN 52 Meeting in Singapore.

The CWG-Stewardship is holding two identical webinars at different times to facilitate participation across time zones. The webinars will take place on:

  • 3 February from 14:00 – 15:00 UTC (time zone converter here)
  • 3 February from 21:00 – 22:00 UTC (time zone converter here)
