Apply now: speaking slots for the pre-ICANN69 Virtual ccTLD News Sessions

Date: 
27 July 2020

The ccNSO Meetings Programme Committee (MPC) will organise for the second time a set of Virtual ccTLD News Sessions. There will be 2 options to participate, prior to ICANN69.

Call for presentations

The MPC seeks presentation proposals from the ccTLD community, focusing preferably on one of the following 2 topics:

  1. Policy updates by ccTLD registries during the COVID-19 pandemic
  2. Legislative initiatives that impact ccTLD registries (e.g. the Digital Services Act package by the European Commission, or other similar initiatives around the globe)

Alternatively, the MPC might consider presentation proposals, covering for instance best practices, case studies, recent developments, ccTLD activities and ccTLD management related topics, both from an operational, marketing or legal point of view.
