The Domain Name System Operations, Analysis and Research Center, DNS-OARC, is a membership organisation that seeks to improve the security, stability and understanding of the Internet's DNS infrastructure. Our community includes, but isn't limited to, operators, vendors, and researchers.

OARC is also an open forum for the DNS community to engage, exchange ideas, and strengthen the human network that builds and maintains the Domain Name System

Week Schedule of Events:

DNS Community Day, Colombia

DNS Community Day, Colombia, is an informal gathering aimed at fostering the exchange of insights and experiences among regional participants. The event will feature talks, panels, and round-table discussions, akin to an in-person version of OARC's Mattermost chat server.

All professionals involved in the operation and development of DNS technology and tools are welcome. Whether you are a small Internet provider, a registrar, a large corporation, a researcher, an existing OARC member, or simply interested in DNS, your participation is highly valued as we collectively explore and advance DNS technology.

If you would like to speak with someone about presenting a topic at DNS Community Day, Colombia, please email meeting@dns-oarc.net.

ICANN DNS Symposium (IDS)

This event follows the seventh ICANN DNS Symposium (IDS), which is co-located with ICANN’s Latin American and Caribbean Domain Names Week. DNS Community Day, Colombia is a one-day event within a week-long series that begins with a full day of plenary sessions on 23 September 2024, promising a comprehensive examination of important DNS issues.

The theme for IDS 2024 is "Navigating the Future: Innovations and Challenges in DNS Operations.” IDS 2024 will highlight innovations and challenges shaping the future of DNS from an operator's perspective. The symposium invites researchers, developers, and operators to present on topics including, but not limited to, extending the DNS protocol, optimizing performance, safeguarding DNS communications, and enhancing the reliability and availability of DNS services during attacks or outages.
