The 13th International Conference for ccTLD registries and registrars in the CIS, Central and Eastern Europe (TLDCON 2020) will be held online on September 7-8

The Coordination Center for TLDs .RU/.РФ announces that the registration for the 13th International Conference for ccTLD registries and registrars in the CIS, Central and Eastern Europe (TLDCON 2020) is open. For the first time, the conference will be held online, on September 7-8, which makes it possible to significantly expand attendance and include new participants in discussing the development of the Russian and international domain industry.

Per tradition, participants will discuss information security, infrastructure development, legal support, marketing, and relations between registries and administrators over two days. Russian and foreign speakers will share their experience and knowledge and will talk about how the domain world survived the COVID-19 pandemic and what must be done today to maintain a free, stable, and safe internet.

The preliminary TLDCON 2020 program is now available on the conference’s website. The first day, September 7, will open with the plenary session, 2020: Industry in New Conditions. How Do We Live on?” Participants will discuss how approaches are changing to ensuring the stable and safe operation of the internet infrastructure at the international, regional and national levels. They will talk about what registries and registrars are focusing on, how demands on the multi-stakeholder model of internet governance in general and ccTLDs in particular have changed in this region.

On the same day, participants will be able to learn which new global and regional initiatives in the Universal Acceptance of IDN domains have surfaced recently and how long we have to wait for the introduction of Russian-language email formats. Moreover, the participants in the session dedicated to internet regulation will discuss the main regulatory trends in the region and how they influence ccTLDs in the context of global industry changes. The speakers will share their ideas in this area and have a dialogue with the audience who will be able to suggest proposals on the topic.

On September 8, the second day of TLDCON 2020, will be a ‘technical’ day: speakers will talk about the development of the DNS system, what is being done to ensure its security and how DNS logging is becoming a valuable source of data for information security specialists, DNS architects, market experts and analysts, as well as whether DNS data is a well from which 21st century oil, that is, big data, comes from.
