51 fellows successful for ICANN57

The global coordinating organization for internet unique identifier, otherwise known as Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) has released 51 candidates as successful fellows to India towards the 57 ICANN public meeting in earlier November this year, reports ITRealms.

The public meeting, ITRealms gathered that those selected were from 35 countries and they will be attending the public meeting in Hyderabad, India, between 3 and 9 November 2016. 

ICANN also said of those 51 selected, 17 are returning fellows from at least one previous meeting and various experience levels, 10 of whom will be coaches to the 34 attending as first time fellows.

The selected fellows, ICANN said, represent all sectors of society including civil, government, ccTLD Operations, academia, facets of the business community, technical, security and end user groups.

ITRealms further recalls that an independent selection committee assessed the 319 fellowship applications received for this meeting; 76 of those met minimum requirements for possible selection. 

ICANN in a newsletter made available to ITRealms said priority was given to applicants who not only meet minimum program requirements, but who are current residents of developing and least developed nations and who are interested in participating in ICANN and its supporting organizations, advisory committees, stakeholder and constituency groups.
