With over 1,800 insider participants, the ICANN conference extended the topic of creating “new ICANN” at the 46th conference in Beijing and initiated a five-year strategic plan of new ICANN. Meanwhile, it established some work groups to discuss the role of ICANN in the public duty framework, the identification technology innovation, the cooperation and innovation of interested parties, the ecological roles of global organizations, and the future internet management, with the hope that more regions and interested parties would contribute to the development of ICANN.
