Joint At-Large & NCUC Outreach Event at ICANN63

Your Guide to ICANN Architecture

MONDAY, 22 OCTOBER 2018 10:30 - 12:00 | 12:15 - 13:15 LOCAL TIME (BARCELONA)

Room 113, Conference Center

Join us in the beautiful city of art and architecture - Barcelona - to discover the architecture of ICANN and art of policy making. Building on the success of the joint At Large & NCUC sessions at ICANN58, ICANN60, ICANN61 and ICANN62, this session represents a joint event of the ICANN At-Large community and Non-Commercial Users Constituency (NCUC) for local academia, civil society and Internet end users.

Aligned with policy and outreach activity during the ICANN63 Annual General Meeting in Barcelona, the agenda is built around policy issues and specific topics. This interactive session aims to help attendees - both newcomers and seasoned community members who want to know more about policy - to get their head in the ICANN policy architecture and to give them real background information on the issues At-Large and the NCUC are working on, and the differences and similarities between NCUC and At-Large positions.
