ICANN Meetings in Marina del Rey

13-16 November 2000

ICANN's next round of meetings will be held (13-16 November, 2000), in Marina del Rey, California. The meetings are free to attend, and open to any interested person. ICANN encourages broad participation in its bottom-up consensus-development process.

The ICANN meetings are being held at the Marina Beach Marriott in Marina del Rey, California in the United States of America.

Details about the meetings are being posted on this page as they become available. Please check back often!

Updated 10 November 2000

The schedule for the November 2000 ICANN meetings is currently as follows. All meetings take place in the Marina Beach Marriott, unless it says otherwise.

Everyone should be aware that the number of pre-registrations for this meeting is quite large relative to previous ICANN meetings (over 900 so far). Since the meeting venue was chosen last year, long before the agenda was known, we did not anticipate the large crowds. This means that some meeting rooms will be crowded. We are doing our best to make overflow space available, if needed. A little patience and understanding will be asked of everyone.

Network connectivity will be provided in the main meeting hall, including Ethernet hubs and a wireless LAN (IEEE 802.11). So bring your cards!
