ICANN 57 to Hold in India

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) will hold its 57th meeting on November 3-9 in Hyderabad, India. A broad range of Internet-related topics will be discussed as contractual issues with the retail and wholesale arms of the Domain Name System, internal restructuring and new initiatives for increasing competition on the Internet.

ICANN meetings are held three times each year in different regions of the globe. They offer the best opportunity for face-to-face discussions. They also offer a variety of sessions such as workshops, open forums and working meetings on the development and implementation of Internet policies.

ICANN meetings are all about participation, collaboration and finding solutions to the small – and large – problems that the Internet constantly faces. Participants attain a lot of benefits as they understand how Internet policies are created and how the Internet works. They gain knowledge about the main issues facing the Internet today and in the near future. In addition, they enhance ICANN work by participating in all key developments.

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is a non-profit organization and has been internationally established to assume the responsibility of distributing the fields of addresses in the IP, allocating the protocol identifiers and managing the record system of Generic Top-Level Domains (gTLDs) and Country Code Top-Level Domain (ccTLD).
