Dear colleagues,

ICANN’s Office of the Chief Technology Officer is pleased to announce that the fifth ICANN DNS Symposium (IDS 2022) will be held on 15-16 November 2022 in Brussels, Belgium. IDS 2022 will be co-located with the first ever IANA Community Day on 17 November 2022. A workshop coordinated by eco<https://www.eco.de/> on DNS abuse topics will also be held on 17-18 November 2022 with further information forthcoming.

The theme for IDS 2022 is “Examining the effects of both centralization and diversification in the DNS”.

There has been a move toward centralization in the Domain Name System (DNS): the devices of more than 20% of Internet users are configured to use public resolvers, according to some studies; a small set of registry service providers are responsible for a large set of top-level domains; an attack against a single service provider’s infrastructure can affect a large percentage of Internet users. At the same time, there are more public resolver services and more top-level domains than ever. This prompts the question, “Is the DNS overly centralized or adequately diversified?” ICANN invites speakers to present topics on centralization and diversification in the DNS. Presentations could include measurements and fact-based predictions, discussions about risk mitigation and scalability in relation to either greater or lesser centralization, greater or lesser diversity, or both.

We are soliciting proposals for presentations. Please send a one-paragraph description of your proposed topic to ids-proposals at icann.org<mailto:ids-proposals at icann.org> by 14 October 2022. We will publish a preliminary agenda by 1 November 2022.

IANA Community Day is a half-day workshop focused on key technical evolution projects within IANA relating to the DNS. Topics will include a discussion of how to perform a DNSSEC algorithm rollover for the DNS root zone, and reviewing and updating the TLD technical requirements for root zone changes. TLD managers, DNS experts, and other interested parties are encouraged to attend.

For more information on both IDS and IANA Community Day, including schedule, venue and registration information, please visit https://www.icann.org/ids.

Thank you and we hope to see you there!
