The North-American At-Large Organisation (NARALO) invites you to its Showcase event held at the ICANN meeting in San Francisco. We are happy to announce that Dr. Vinton Cerf has confirmed his participation and will be giving a keynote address. Mr. Cerf is widely recognized as one of “the fathers of the Internet” and is the co-designer of the TCP/IP protocols and the architecture of the Internet. His contributions have been acknowledged and lauded, repeatedly, with honorary degrees, and awards that include the National Medal of Technology, the Presidential Medal of Freedom and membership in the National Academy of Engineering.
This event will give NARALO an opportunity to present its member organizations, highlight the role of North American Internet users in the Internet eco-system and reach out to local organisations. It will promote NARALO’s profile in the North American Internet community and try to draw new participants into its policy processes. (click here for the complete program).
When & Where
North American At-Large Organisation
At-Large is the name for the community of individual Internet users who participate in the policy development work of ICANN. More than 125 At-Large Structures representing the views of individual Internet users are active throughout the world.
At-Large supports global participation in ICANN by individual lnternet users who want to influence decisions that affect everyone’s use of the Internet every time they use the net. ICANN At-Large provides essential policy advice to ICANN, including guidance on how to ensure changes to the Internet’s addressing system can help ensure the Internet becomes a more trusted and safe place, how Internationalized Domain Names (“local language” domain names) are implemented, and how additional new top-level domains (.info, .name, .museum, etc.) are introduced.
