OARC 28 Agenda

OARC 28 is just over a week away! This will be our first workshop in Puerto Rico; and we have a jam packed Workshop programme with time devoted to specific tracks — Operations and Infrastructure, DNSSEC, Software, Keyrolling, Measurement, Protocol Development, Privacy and Lightning Talks.

OARC 28 takes place in San Juan, Puerto Rico on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th March 2018, before ICANN61 (March 10th— 15th).


The scheduled Agenda has now been published, and the OARC 28 website gives you further details including the list of speakers and a précis of each of the presentations.

Day 1 starts at 08:30 PDT where OARC Members can pick up their pre-printed delegate badge. The OARC Business session for members begins at 09:30 AST and ends approximately 11:00 AST.

This is followed by a coffee break where non-members can pick up their pre-printed delegate badges and the main session starts at 11:30 AST and runs through until 13:30 AST.

The Day includes a couple of coffee breaks for networking opportunities and lunch. The Day 2 sessions start at 09:30 AST and last until approximately 18:00 AST (with a coffee break and lunch in between).


We hope you’ll all be able to join us on March 8th and 9th. You may register via the OARC 28 website!

Early Bird registration has now ended so a late registration fee of $100 applies to all attendees (OARC members will now pay $100, non-members will now pay $450). The exception are staff from the Host organisation ICANN who may register for free. Members and ICANN staff should contact us via email for their discount code.


A big thank you to ICANN for hosting OARC 28.
