No Gap to Mind: The GNSO in London

No Gap to Mind: The GNSO in London

It has not yet been three months since ICANN 49 and already the GNSO community is in the final stages of preparations for the fiftieth ICANN Meeting. Despite the proximity of the two meetings, the London agenda is as packed as ever and so ICANN 50 is set to be an extremely busy and hopefully equally productive meeting for the GNSO.

Downtown Los Angeles, California

ICANN 51 – Los Angeles

Los Angeles will be the site designated for ICANN 51 scheduled for October 2014. The official venue is the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza. Perfectly situated on the fashionable West Side of Los Angeles, California, adjacent to Beverly Hills, this elegant, iconic hotel offers easy access to all the sights of this vibrant city. The agenda will continue to focus on ICANN's accountability and the transition of IANA stewardship to some future mechanism to be determined. While the New gTLD Program has advanced considerably since the application round opened in 2012, status and outstanding issues will also continue to be discussed in Los Angeles. For more information please visit the London meetings page.
