ICANN’s 32nd International public meeting opened in Paris yesterday morning.
There are several hot topics on the agenda and judging by the crowds of people at last night’s welcome cocktail, attendance levels are good.
If you’re interested in finding out more head over to the meeting’s official site where you can find details of meetings, talks, presentations and more.
The areas that are bound to attract attention this week are quite diverse and encompass topics such as new TLDs, the launch of .tel (dottel), Whois (again!), registry failover, the registrar agreement and both IDNs and IPv6. (Can you say “acronym hell”??)
Of course no ICANN meeting would be complete without an equally busy social agenda and last night’s welcome cocktail at La Defense (photo above) was no different. Wednesday’s gala dinner is being held in yet another famous Parisian landmark (more on that Thursday I hope!)
