As the first "hybrid" event since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, ICANN 74 marked a return to in-person meetings, with a limited number of vaccinated participants attending sessions in the Netherlands. The Policy Forum ran from June 13 to June 16, 2022. The Prep Week for the event ran from May 31 to June 2, 2022.[1]

Return to In-Person

The meeting was the first to feature an in-person gathering since the initiation of safety measures in response to COVID. Attendees noted that registration for some sessions was quickly fully booked.[1] the overbooking appeared to be mostly related to room size and limitations on attendance. ICANN CIO Ashwin Rangan noted that the lessons of the pandemic would improve the experience for both in-person and remote attendees:

The switch to virtual meetings more than two years ago presented us with the opportunity to further innovate and advance the way we get together as a global community. Since then, we have significantly enhanced the meeting experience for participants from around the world. We look forward to blending the knowledge gained through the virtual meetings with the option of in-person participation to make ICANN74 more inclusive and equitable for all who attend.[2]

Topics

Prep Week

  1. The Phase 1a Initial Report of the Policy Development Process to Review the Transfer Policy Working Group was presented at Prep Week, [3] with an expectation that the public comment period for the report would open on or around ICANN 74.
    • The initial report concerning inter-transfers (changes in registrars) to be published Q2 of 2022; at ICANN 74, the focus will focus on intra-transfers: change of registrants.
  2. The Prioritization Framework pilot was also a topic during Prep Week in the Planning & Finance Update Session.[4] Participants in the pilot process praised the efficiency and work product of the pilot.[4] Xavier Calvez clarified that, in principle, recommendations and policy objectives would only go through the prioritization framework one time.[4]
  3. Updates and details from the SUBPRO Operational Design Phase were also shared and discussed during Prep Week.[5]
    • special focus on possibly updating the rules on Application Change Requests (ACRs) to resolve contention sets, lengthening the objection period, determining the interest/potential volume of applications, and outlining how long the ODP process may take (10 months), followed with a 3-month allowance for the ICANN Board to consider the ODA
  4. DNS Abuse persisted as a salient topic; the GNSO's small team on DNS Abuse was optimistic about its work and said that it had received a lot of input from across the community and generated many fresh ideas on tackling the issue
  5. The session on ICANN's Evolution of the Multistakeholder Model involved several participant polls, which reflected an interest in ICANN improving inclusivity, accountability, and the culture (moving away from silos)

Policy Forum

  1. DNS Abuse:
    1. the ALAC and ccNSO have sessions from each organization's perspective.[6] [7]
  2. Prioritization:
    1. The Prioritization Framework is featured in a broader plenary session on priority-setting.[8]
  3. The SSAC is presenting on the progress of the Name Collision Analysis Project.[9] Due to a small meeting room, seats for the presentation were fully reserved before the commencement of the meeting. NCAP project members also held working group meetings during the conference.
