ISOC At ICANN52, Tuesday: Constituency Day and A Meeting of Internet Society Members

Tuesday at ICANN 52 is what is usually called “constituency day” within the ICANN community as all the various supporting organizations, stakeholder groups and constituency groups hold their individual meetings. You can see this quite clearly if you look at the ICANN schedule for today.

From an Internet Society point of view, our interests continue to be around the IANA transition and accountability points Konstantinos Komaitis outlined in a post last week. Today provides an opportunity to learn more about what the different groups within ICANN think about those issues – and also learn what other concerns the different groups have. Some of our team will be attending the meetings of individual groups, while others will be attending the joint meetings of the ICANN Board with the various groups. These sessions with the ICANN Board provide a good view into what the groups view as their highest priorities and concerns. You can follow along at these links:

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.

ISOC@ICANN Members Meeting

As we have done at ICANN meetings for quite some time now, we’ll hold our Tuesday evening “ISOC@ICANN Members Meeting” from 19:00-21:00 in the Morrison Room of the Swissotel. This meeting provides an excellent opportunity for all Internet Society members and chapter leaders who are attending ICANN52 to gather together, share information and learn more about ISOC-related activities. The event page in our Connect site has more information and we look forward to an enjoyable evening of conversation and collaboration. The meeting will be streamed live on for any members wishing to join in remotely.

As Tuesday draws to a close, many of us will naturally head to the “Music Night” sponsored by Afilias and the Public Interest Registry (PIR), before we get ready for a busy day on Wednesday. If you are here at ICANN 52, please do say hello if you see us in any of the sessions – and we look forward to meeting with many of you at the Members Meeting tonight.
