** ICANN67 to be held via remote participation-only

The ICANN67 Public Meeting, which was to be held in Cancún, Mexico, will now be held via remote participation-only. This decision was made as a result of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak, considered a public health emergency of international concern by the World Health Organization. Please read the full announcement here.  As a result of ICANN’s announcement and the subsequent discussions, it was decided to reduce the ccNSO meeting schedule for ICANN67 to a strict minimum.   A few highlights:

** ccNSO schedule at ICANN67
  • The ccNSO Council, Working Groups and Committees will continue their work according to their regular year-round schedule, but will not meet as part of ICANN67.
  • Tech Day and the ccNSO Members Meeting have been cancelled and sessions or presentations will be deferred - to the extent possible – to the ICANN68 public meeting.
  • The ccNSO typically meets with the ICANN Board and other supporting organisations and advisory committees at ICANN Public Meetings: the joint meetings between ccNSO, ALAC, GAC, the GNSO council and the ICANN Board - originally to be held in Cancún - have been cancelled.
** ICANN67 schedule

A limited number of ICANN67 sessions will continue to be held, but via remote participation only. A modified remote participation schedule for ICANN67 will become available here.  Those interested in attending the remote meeting should still register here, if they have not done so previously. To learn more about remote participation, visit ICANN Public Meetings.
