Istanbul to host Face-to-face meeting of CCWG-Accountability, CWG-Stewardship

The Cross Community Working Group on Enhancing the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Number (ICANN) Accountability (CCWG-Accountability) and the CWG-Stewardship will each hold a face-to-face meeting in Istanbul, Turkey the week of 23-27 March 2015, reports ITRealms.

The CWG and CCWG leaders coordinated the location, agreeing that holding their respective two-day meetings consecutively was the best way to apply resources and manage joint efforts.

ITRealms also reports that these decisive meetings are scheduled to help reinforce each group's respective project plans and timelines, both anticipating drafts for public comment in April.

According to ITRealms findings, the meetings are open to observers through Adobe Connect, and the working sessions will be recorded and transcribed.

ITRealms recalls that the second of two Working Sessions for the CCWG-Accountability was held last December. 

The CCWG-Accountability is expected to deliver proposals that would enhance ICANN's accountability towards all stakeholders.

The goal is for the transition proposal regarding the IANA functions to be communicated to NTIA in a timeframe which is consistent with the expiration date of the current IANA Functions Contract, which is set at 30th September 2015. 

The CCWG-Accountability will therefore work as expeditiously as possible to identify those mechanisms that must be in place or committed to before the IANA Stewardship Transition in light of the changing historical contractual relationship with the U.S. Government and those mechanisms for which a timeline for implementation may extend beyond the IANA Stewardship Transition.
