About the ccTLD News Session

The ICANN79 ccTLD News Session is tentatively scheduled for 5 or 6 March, and will allow for both in-person and virtual participation. Simultaneous interpretation will be available for selected ccNSO sessions during the next ICANN Public Meeting, including the ccTLD News Session. Participants will be able to select the language they wish to speak or listen to. Languages available will be Arabic, English, French or Spanish.

Previous editions of the ccTLD News Sessions had an excellent collection of case studies, statistics, new developments, trends and more. The ccTLD News Sessions have been a part of the ccNSO Members Meetings for several years and has provided a global platform for both experienced and new people to meet, share experiences and discuss ccTLD-related aspects. For reference, the most recent session was held during ICANN78.
