Visuel 44ème Réunion ICANN


AFNIC is gearing up for the 44th ICANN meeting, to be held in Prague from 24 to 29 June 2012. Our teams will be taking turns to host AFNIC stand number 14 throughout the week. The meeting will provide the registry operator with an opportunity to discuss the wide range of projects related to ccTLDs (IDN launch, accreditation of registrars, etc.) and to review the latest events concerning the new gTLDs, for which a total of 1,930 application packages have been filed worldwide, 54 of them by French companies or local authorities, and 16 promoters of projects have already retained AFNIC solutions…

The 44th ICANN meeting should also be marked by:

  • The last attendance of Rod Beckstrom, the current ICANN President and CEO, who will be leaving office in July. The name of his successor will also be announced;
  •  No doubt extremely keen debate on the prioritizing of the study of gTLD application packages (digital archery);
  • The first negotiations between project backers on the same TLDs;
