ICANN Meeting, Corinthia Lisboa Hotel, Lisbon, Portugal
What it is: The Country-Code Names Supporting Organization (ccNSO), the ccNSO's representative decision-making body which helps develop policy for country code top-level domains (ccTLDs), convenes both a members meeting and a Council meeting in Lisbon.
Why it's important: The Council and members will consider the ICANN regions, the policy and politics of internationalised domain names at the top level (.idn) and a number of other issues affecting a cross-section of the world's country codes, as well as receiving updates from various members on the latest developments with their ccTLDs.
Who should attend: Anyone with an interest in ccTLD issues specifically, and the domain name system in general, including registrars, registries, businesses, Internet service providers, Internet users, and government representatives.
