Preregistration. If you plan to attend the meetings in person, you must preregister. If you plan to attend via webcast, preregistration is optional but is recommended to assure that you receive reminder messages just before the start of each session. Preregister with ICANN to attend in person or online.
Openness and Archival. The meetings listed above will be open to all interested parties. The comments and questions of remote participants will be read to the assembled group and archived online. The archive will also include a video recording of all plenary sessions, an archive of presentations delivered, and comprehensive scribe's notes of certain plenary sessions.
other meeting sessions? As shown on ICANN's
meeting schedule, there are also a number of additional meetings
taking place in Marina del Rey. However, these additional sessions will
not be webcast.
Remote Participation Over The Internet
Viewing and Hearing the Meeetings. We will offer a live real-time audio and video feed from the public meetings listed above. In addition, we will post the meeting scribe's notes in real time.
Participating in the Meetings. Online participants will be able to submit text comments in real-time. Questions and comments submitted over the Internet will be sent to technical staff present in the meeting room. Those real-time messages relevant to the topic currently being discussed will be processed by the moderator who will select certain messages for presentation to the assembled group for a response similar to that provided to a concern raised at a microphone in a Q&A session. All messages will be archived on this site.
How do I get connected on the day of the meeting? Shortly before each event made available by webcast, a prominent link will be added to the top of this page. Check back here just before the start of each meeting, then follow that link.
Pre-meeting comments. Before the meeting, you may submit comments to ICANN via the ICANN Public Comment Forum.
