ICANN GDD Summit 2017

The GDD Industry Summit provides contracted parties an opportunity to engage and address issues of mutual interest and importance. This forum enables direct and one-on-one interaction with members of ICANN's Global Domains Division team. It is not a typical ICANN meeting nor is it solely intended for discussions of policy.

The 6th Registrations Operations Workshop

The Registration Operations Workshop (ROW) was conceived as an informal industry conference that would provide a forum for discussion of the technical aspects of registration operations in the domain name system.

Format and length of ROW#6 will adapt in order to maximize its role and enable as much discussion as needful. We are currently exploring an agenda covering from tutorials to technical and operational experience presentations, use of the testing suite, ROW experts group discussions, etc with a focus on Registration Data Access Protocol (RDAP) deployments and Extensible Provisioning Protocol (EPP) extensions.
