Santiago Meetings

August 24-26, 1999

ICANN will be holding its next series of meetings in Santiago, Chile, on August 24-26, 1999. Any interested person is welcome to attend and participate; most meetings will be broadcast live over the Internet, with remote participants able to submit comments and questions in real time.



The local Host Committee, chaired by Florencio Utreras, has prepared a web site with full details relating to meeting venues, lodging options, and meeting schedules.

ICANN is grateful to Sr. Utreras and the Host Committee for volunteering their time to organize these meetings; and to the College of Economic Sciences, University of Chile in Santiago, Chile, for donating the use of its auditorium and meeting rooms.
