Mexico City Meeting Schedule Published

6 February 2009

The schedule for the upcoming meeting in Mexico City on 1-6 March is now
published on the Mexico City Meeting Website <http://mex.icann.org/>.

You can view the full schedule here <http://mex.icann.org/node/2429>.

The schedule format has been redesigned to present a clear picture of the
overall structure of the meeting, identifying the different sessions, rooms,
and their associated time slots. Extensive use of standardized session and
break times will provide a buffer between sessions to facilitate a smooth
meeting flow and allow more time for delegate interaction.

Other parts of the schedule that we wish to draw the community's attention
to include:

   - Increase in time allocated to Public Forum, with buffers to allow for
   unexpected overruns.
   - A 90-minute Q&A session dedicated to the New gTLD Applicant Guidebook
   on Monday, 2 March.
   - A Joint Public Meeting on Monday afternoon where representatives from
   the different Supporting Organizations and Advisory Committees will discuss
   and debate the issues of most importance to them. Everyone is invited to
   attend and a feedback session at the end will allow for commentary from the
   - An At-Large Summit will open on Saturday at the Sheraton, with a
   closing report to the community just prior to Thursday's Public Forum.
   Additional sessions will run in the nearby Hotel Melia on Sunday and
   - A number of introductory sessions covering new gTLDs, IDNs and ICANN
   itself are designed to give first-time attendees an overview of the
   organization and its work.
   - The community is invited to attend a public meeting of the new Public
   Participation Board Committee on Wednesday to discuss ways of improving
   participation within ICANN.
   - An e-Crime Workshop is slated for Wednesday afternoon.
   - Staff updates are now scheduled just before Friday's Board meeting to
   allow for presentations that reflect community feedback and give more time
   for public forums.

We hope the community find the new schedule format useful and look forward
to seeing you all in Mexico City.
