The full schedule for the London ICANN meeting has now been published. Clearly, the end of June is going to be a busy time for the Internet community.

The London meeting is ICANN’s 50th International Meeting and it coincides with 3 other major events.

The first is the Commonwealth Domain Name System Forum organised by the Commonwealth Telecommunications Organisation.

ICANN’s At-Large community which represents Internet users will also be holding its second At-Large Summit, dubbed ATLAS II. Milathan Chairman Stéphane Van Gelder will be a speaker on one of the ATLAS II panels.

Lastly, a High Level Government Meeting will also be held in London as part of the ICANN meeting week. This meeting is expected to center around recent key issues such as the IANA transition, which will be the focus of much work during ICANN London, to the point that ICANN leadership decided on an exceptional reshuffle of the traditional ICANN meeting week agenda to afford these issues special focus.
