The ICANN Open Forum aims to update participants on progress ICANN has made in key areas of its work since last year’s IGF in João Pessoa. 

This is one of the most well attended and interactive sessions at IGF meetings, where participants get the opportunity to engage in an open dialogue with ICANN’s leadership and exchange views on various issues. In particular, the session will provide updates and seek feedback on key projects and processes such as the implementation of the IANA Stewardship Transition, the on-going work on Accountability, ICANN’s strategic planning, and ICANN’s global stakeholder engagement efforts. 

The Open Forum is also an opportunity for ICANN to expand beyond its regular community and reach out to new audience to help them become more acquainted with ICANN related work. 


• Steve Crocker, Chairman of the ICANN Board
• Göran Marby, President and CEO
• Other staff / community to be invited
