BRUSSELS – The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced in a press release that the third Eastern European Domain Name System Forum will take place from December 4-5, 2018, in Moscow, Russia, following the success of the first edition in Kiev, Ukraine (2016), and the second one in Minsk, Belarus (2017). The event is jointly organized by ICANN and the Coordination Center for National Domains .RU/.РФ.
This event is part of ICANN's regional outreach efforts to raise awareness on issues related to the Domain Name System (DNS), and collaborate with stakeholders on key areas. It comes as a continuation of the earlier engagement efforts to bring global discussions on the DNS to the regional level, and uncover the contexts surrounding the regional perspectives.

Sessions on the first day will cover technical topics. The second day will be devoted to policy-related discussions. The Forum's topics include:

The current state and evolution of the Root Server System
Universal Acceptance
Internationalized Domain Names
Artificial Intelligence and the DNS
DNS abuse
Transborder legislative issues affecting the DNS

ICANN's Chief Technology Officer David Conrad, and Chief Security, Stability and Resiliency Officer John Crain will be at the event participating in discussions related to the evolution and security of the DNS, and the current challenges faced. Other regional and global actors of the DNS industry will also attend the forum, contributing to the sessions with their experiences and areas of expertise.
