The fiftieth meeting of ICANN, the organization with global responsibility for allocating domain names on the Internet, will be held in London from June 22 to 26, and attended by several thousand people (representatives of government bodies, professionals and civil society stakeholders) in various think tanks and working groups.

The evolution of ICANN and particularly the transition of the IANA function are listed on the agenda, as well as the future of the Whois database or that of ATLAS, the ICANN At-Large Summit.

Afnic will take part in all of these discussions as the spokesperson for its members and to defend its vision of an Internet open to innovations and respectful of the rights of each user.

Afnic also intends to give the French ccTLD pride of place on its stand as well as the French geoTLDs for which it provides the technical management (.paris, .bzh, .alsace, .aquitaine and .corsica).
