ICANN Posts Schedule for Paris Meeting 22-26 June

9 April 2008

ICANN today posted the schedule http://par.icann.org/schedule for its
public Meeting to be held in Paris 22-26 June.

"With two and a half months to go, there are some important changes to
the schedule that attendees need to know." said Paul Levins, Executive
Officer and Vice President, Corporate Affairs. First, the meeting will
end on Thursday the 26 of June. Historically the Board meeting has been
held on the Friday morning of these meetings. That has involved an
additional day's time and expense by participants. In response to
feedback and in the interests of economy, this meeting will see the
Board meeting take place on Thursday evening with the meeting ending
that night". Mr Levins said.

"Furthermore, ICANN is keen to encourage participation by all
stakeholders and at this meeting we will be holding a series of sessions
identified on the agenda as Business Access Agenda targeted at the
business community" said Paul Levins.

"Finally we will be holding sessions dealing with the work of the
President's strategy group, new gTLDS and the future, workshops on IDN
fastrack, IPV6, protection of registrants, GNSO improvements
implementation, Review of the At-Large Advisory Committee and translation."

"We look forward to welcoming all attendees at Paris for what should be
a fruitful and engaging meeting" Levins said.
