Paris Chosen as Site of ICANN's 32nd Public Meeting
France will host world Internet community 22-27 June 2008
17 August 2007
*MARINA DEL REY, Calif.*: Paris, France will host the Internet Corporation
for Assigned Names and Numbers' 32nd International Public Meeting from 22-27
At its 14 August 2007 meeting, the ICANN Board accepted the proposal put
forward by *Association pour la Gouvernance de l'Internet en France, en
Europe, et dans le monde* (AGIFEM).
"ICANN is looking forward to working with AGIFEM and welcoming the global
Internet community to Paris," said Paul Levins, ICANN's Executive Officer
and Vice President - Corporate Affairs. "We had two highly competitive
proposals to host the meeting slated for ICANN's European region – a
testament to the great local Internet communities in France and Serbia."
Each year ICANN holds three meetings in different regions around the world.
These meetings constitute an essential part of ICANN's global
consensus-building and outreach efforts. The ICANN Meetings Committee sets
the regions in which ICANN will hold its meetings. Proposals are then
solicited from organizations interested in hosting the ICANN Meeting.
ICANN has received a number of competitive bids to host the 31st Public
Meeting, slated to be held 10-15 February 2008 in the Asia-Pacific region.
They are being closely evaluated and a decision will be made shortly.
