What happens to IANA?

Thursday, 13. November 2014
18:00 - 21:30
Hochschulstrasse 4 / room 105, 3012 Bern


For a long time core functions of the Internet, such as the the overall administration of Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (IANA), have been under supervision of the US government. Recently, the US government announced its intent to transition part of its oversight role to the global multistakeholder community. This announcement attracted a great deal of attention and has sparked some very lively discussions. You can find more information on ISOC’s IANA transition website.

We invite you to an event where the IANA transition process will be explained by experts. You will also get an update on its status and other interesting topics regarding ICANN and IANA.
