UPDATE: President and CEO of ICANN Fadi Chehadé, former FCC Commissioner Robert McDowell, and U.S. Coordinator for International Communications and Information Policy Daniel A. Sepulveda will join Lawrence Strickling of NTIA in the panel discussion.
In March, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration of the Department of Commerce asked the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) to convene global interested parties to develop a proposal to transition the U.S. government’s stewardship of the Internet’s Domain Name System. The Administration’s decision is an important milestone in the evolution of Internet governance.
