Background paper: No Background Paper Uploaded


Concise Description:
IGF Meeting – 2011
Nairobi, Kenya
27-30 September 2011

ICANN Open Forum Proposal

The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) is an internationally organized, non-profit corporation that has responsibility for Internet Protocol (IP) address space allocation, protocol identifier assignment, generic (gTLD) and country code (ccTLD) Top-Level Domain name system management, and root server system management functions. As a private-public partnership, ICANN is dedicated to preserving the operational stability of the Internet; to promoting competition; to achieving broad representation of global Internet communities; and to developing policy appropriate to its mission through bottom-up, consensus-based processes.

The purpose of the open forum is to brief the IGF participants on ICANN's work since the IGF Vilnius meeting, and to provide updates on areas such as new gTLDs, IDNs (Internationalized Domain Names), Affirmation of Commitments (AOC), as well as other technical issues of interest to the community.
