Schedule Posted for ICANN’s 30th International Public Meeting

ICANN Los Angeles image Participants have six weeks to plan their ICANN meeting participation and input ICANN today released the schedule for its upcoming 30th International Public Meeting slated for 29 October to 2 November in Los Angeles. “We wanted to get the schedule out well in advance of the meeting so the more than 1,000 people expected to attend can start planning their participation and be aware of the issues on the table,” said Paul Levins, Executive Office and Vice President, Corporate Affairs with ICANN. “The Los Angeles meeting is historic for ICANN – it is our 30th, it marks the end of Vint Cerf’s term as chair, will welcome ICANN’s new chair, and of course there will be discussions of major issues, including new generic top-level domains and internationalized domain names.” “On Tuesday night ICANN will host the meeting’s tribute to Vint Cerf to thank him for eight years of volunteer service on the board, seven of those as chair,” Levins added. The meeting, which also serves as ICANN’s 2007 annual general meeting, takes place at the Hilton Los Angeles Airport. “If you care about the Internet, if you care that it works for you every day, then the ICANN meeting is a great place to get involved,” Levins added. “We encourage the business and technical communities as well as individuals to come along. Best of all, registration is free.” Links to the schedule and the registration form are available online at: This announcement was sourced from
