ICANN’s webinar dwells on policy update

Global internet coordinating body, the Internet Corporate for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has called for invitation for participation in the upcoming ICANN policy meeting to be held in San Francisco in March this year.

ICANN in a press statement made available to ITRealms Online noted that whether one plans to participate in the upcoming ICANN meeting in San Francisco remotely or in person, its vital to be reminded of the background and current status of each major policy issue currently under discussion in ICANN via the webinar.

Webinar is short name for Web-based seminar; a webinar is a presentation, lecture, workshop or seminar that is transmitted over the World Wide Web (www). Essential feature of a Webinar is its interactive elements, namely the ability to give, receive and discuss information.

ITRealms Online gathered that ICANN’s policy staff would provide a briefing on Thursday 3 March at 13.00 and 20.00 UTC, to summarize 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.

Some of the updates expected via the webinar session include Registration Abuse Policies Recommendations (GNSO), New gTLD Recommendation 6 WG, Post-Expiration Domain Name Recovery (GNSO), Recent WHOIS work, Country names study group (ccNSO), Delegation and Re-delegation Working Group (ccNSO), Joint DNS Security and Stability Analysis Working Group, and Global policy for handling recovered IPv4 address space (ASO).

Officials said that the two sessions would be duplicated and scheduled to accommodate different time zones.

Each session, ICANN said scheduled to run for 90 minutes, and would be conducted in English only.

Also, ICANN said, the meeting would run in Adobe Connect with a slide presentation along with a dial-in conference bridge for audio.

Participants, therefore, are advised to have 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 slides and MP3 will be made available shortly after the meeting. The policy staff is always available to answer any questions that you email to policy-staff at ICANN,” part of the statement read.

However, intending participants have been advised to register to receive the call details, in addition to indicating which call they would prefer to join, 13.00 UTC or 20.00 UTC.
