Organizer 2: Technical Community, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)

Speaker 1: Adiel Akplogan, Technical Community, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)
Speaker 2: Emma Pearce, Private Sector, Western European and Others Group (WEOG)
Speaker 3: Chérif Diallo, Government, African Group


Panel - 90 Min


The session will be moderated by ICANN
Adiel Akplogan from ICANN will present ICANN’s work related to the evolution of the DNS and how ICANN is keeping the DNS secured and resilient
LoRa Alliance will provide an overview of the deployment of IoT networks and its vision of the future of Internet Of Things
Dr Chérif Diallo will explain the challenge of these new evolution from a developing country point of view


We will ensure that the final participant line up is diverse in all aspects.
While this is a requirement it is also necessary to have the sort of wide and comprehensive debate we are looking for. This is a global, not just a
developed country issue. We also will have participants from different stakeholder groups.

Emma will give an overview of the LoRA Alliance's vision of the future of the IoT and will discuss with Adiel and Chérif about the technical implications on DNS.

He will ensure that it is issues that are raised by audience that are addressed by participants as well as pre-agreed questions. We will ensur there is a two-way dialogue from start to finish. No monologues, no PowerPoints (perhaps except for a few factual slides from ICANN org) though will, of course, allow participants breadth to fully answer questions.

5G and LoRaWAN will shape the future of the Internet of Things and the future of the digital economy. 5G is considering has a revolution compared to 4G et 3G evolutions and LoRaWAN should allow the interconnection of billions of objects in the coming years.
These evolutions will drastically change the architecture of the Internet and will bring new technical and economic challenges to the DNS infrastructure

Online Participation

On-line participation, for many reasons, will be a critical part of this Session. We want more than tweets but real contributions; which will be fed into session (to Moderator) so opinions can be linked to those from those people present. These will not be taken at end but on same basis as comment / questions in room. we will also encourage, as appropriate, the moderator to have the participants ask questions to on-line contributors

Laurent has direct experience on facilitating remote participation from ICANN Sessions.
