Public Comment: Proposed ICANN Meeting Dates 2014 - 2016

21 February 2011

While ICANN continues to examine the overall structure of its meeting dates and geographic rotation, it is important to move forward with future planning. In an effort to secure the dates for ICANN meetings through 2016, staff recommendations have been developed for public review and comment. Approving the meeting dates is important to prevent conflicts with other community events and to allow all participants sufficient time to plan their travel and attendance.

The proposed dates below have been selected based on careful avoidance of important holidays, celebrations, and observances around the globe. Similarly, every effort was made to identify and prevent scheduling conflicts with other community events.

ICANN will not be able to accommodate every request for a date change. However, in an effort to be fully cognizant of holidays and occasions from countries and religions around the world, we would like to provide an opportunity for comment so the ICANN Public Participation Committee of the Board can move forward with approving the dates.

Deadline and How to Submit Comments: The Staff is opening a 15-day public comment forum, from 21 February to 8 March 2011, and invites community comments on this topic.

To submit comments: Comments are welcome via email to meeting-dates-2016 at icann.org<mailto:meeting-dates-2016 at icann.org>. This public forum will be open through 8 March 2011.

To view comments: An archive of all comments received will be publicly posted at http://forum.icann.org/lists/meeting-dates-2016/.
