ICANN Public Forum
The public forum is the Community's opportunity to make comments and ask questions on the main topics at each meeting directly to the Board and in front of the rest of the community.
For transparency, a scribe feed is provided both in the room and via remote participation in real-time to allow all comments and questions raised during the session to be viewed by everyone.
Remote participants have the opportunity to raise questions and/or comments via the chat room during the session.
An additional channel of communication will be available for the first time during the Public Forum in London. ICANN will use several remote video hubs scattered around the globe, similar to what was utilized during the NETmundial conference in Brazil. These hubs will allow remote participants to ask questions via a live video stream. More information on these hubs will be forth coming.
- Each speaker will get two chances to address the specific issue as it is discussed.
- 2-Minutes to make initial remarks.
- 2-Minutes minutes later in the queue for any possible follow-up remarks.
- Time restrictions will be strictly adhered to.
- In an effort to facilitate as many questions as possible, Board responses are limited to the same time restrictions as the community, specifically 2-minutes.
- Board responses to follow-up questions will also be limited to 2-minutes.
All members of the ICANN Community.
Because the Public Forum has been abbreviated to only 2-hours (from it's usual 4-hours) during ICANN50, the entire session will be wide open to any and all subjects of community interest.
