ICANN Posts Schedule for Paris Meeting 22-26 June

9 April 2008

ICANN today posted the schedule <http://par.icann.org/en/schedule> for its
public Meeting to be held in Paris 22-26 June.

"With two and a half months to go, there are some important changes to the
schedule that attendees need to know." said Paul Levins, Executive Officer
and Vice President, Corporate Affairs. First, the meeting will end on
Thursday the 26 of June. Historically the Board meeting has been held on the
Friday morning of these meetings. That has involved an additional day's time
and expense by participants. In response to feedback and in the interests of
economy, this meeting will see the Board meeting take place on Thursday
evening with the meeting ending that night". Mr Levins said.

"Furthermore, ICANN is keen to encourage participation by all stakeholders
and at this meeting we will be holding a series of sessions identified on
the agenda as Business Access Agenda targeted at the business community"
said Paul Levins.

"Finally we will be holding sessions dealing with the work of the
President's strategy group, new gTLDS and the future, workshops on IDN
fastrack, IPV6, protection of registrants, GNSO improvements implementation,
Review of the At-Large Advisory Committee and translation."

"We look forward to welcoming all attendees at Paris for what should be a
fruitful and engaging meeting" Levins said.
