ISOC at ICANN52, Thursday: Public Forums and IANA Transition and Accountability

Dan York
By Dan YorkDirector, Content and Web Strategy

On this final day of ICANN 52 in Singapore, the main events will be the Public Forum and the Public Meeting of the ICANN Board. Both of these are events where any member of the ICANN community can ask questions of the ICANN Board, staff and other leaders. They operate under very strict timelines (2 minutes per speaker) and usually provide an interesting view into the concerns and interests of the wider ICANN community. You can follow along remotely at:

All times are Singapore Time which is UTC+8. The meetings will all be recorded for later viewing if you are unable to watch them live.

I’ll note that 13 Internet Society chapters are among the groups acting as “Remote Hubs” to allow gatherings of members to view the public meetings and also contribute questions remotely. If you live in one of these regions you can join from the remote hub locations.

Before the Public Forum, though, there will still be several sessions related to the IANA transition and accountability points Konstantinos Komaitis outlined in his post last week. Additionally, there will be an Internet Governance session where our own Sally Wentworth will be participating. The full schedule is online, but you can follow these specific sessions at these links:

On the technology side, the primary activity is the morning meeting of ICANN’s Security and Stability Advisory Committee (SSAC). In this public meeting, SSAC leaders will explain the group’s recent activities and ask for advice of the community:

And with that, our time at ICANN 52 will draw to a close. It’s been great meeting so many of you a the sessions – and if you have not been following along with what we’ve been doing this week, please also view our other public policy posts and technology posts related to ICANN 52.

Internet Society Board of Trustees Meeting

While the ICANN 52 activities will end today, our Internet Society work in Singapore will continue with our ISOC Board of Trustees meeting taking place on Saturday and Sunday. Several Internet Society staff members as well as the Board of Trustees will be around from today through the weekend.

See you all at ICANN 53 in Buenos Aires!
