You are receiving this message because you preregistered to attend ICANN's
upcoming public meetings in Yokohama, Japan (July 12-17) via webcast.
To better plan which sessions to join via webcast, you may find it helpful
to review the schedule ICANN has posted at
<http://www.icann.org/yokohama/#schedule>. The schedule clearly designates
sessions to be webcast; you'll find that major plenary sessions will be
webcast, including the DNSO's meetings and the GAC Public Forum on July 14,
the ICANN Public Forum on July 15, and the ICANN Board of Directors Meeting
on July 16.
To join the webcast each day, go to
<http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/icann/yokohama>. During and just before
webcasts, a prominent link on this page will allow you to enter the remote
participation area. Please be sure to join us online at the proper time,
being aware of time zone differences. For example, ICANN's Public Forum
begins at 8:30AM local time on July 15 -- which is, for example, July 14 at
11:30PM in UTC, and July 14 at 7:30PM in US Eastern time.

session to local times in other time zones. Similarly, ICANN's Board of
Directors meeting, beginning at 9:00AM local time on July 16, begins at
midnight at the start of July 16 in UTC and at 8PM on July 15 in US Eastern
time, with more times available via
In preparation for the meetings, you may want to review the meeting agenda,
as posted at <http://www.icann.org/yokohama/#agenda>. From that page,
you'll also find public comment spaces on major agenda items.
We intend to make available complete archives at the conclusion of each day;
go to <http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/icann/yokohama> to access such archives,
to join the webcast, and to preregister others to attend remotely.
Access to the remote participation system requires a 28.8kbps or faster
modem, with best access over 56k or faster connections. Access to the live
audio and video feeds requires the RealPlayer, version 5.0 or later (G2 or
later strongly recommended), available for free from
<http://www.real.com/products/player>. Finally, access to the live chat and
dynamically-updated scribe's notes areas requires a JAVA-capable browser (IE
or Netscape version 3 or later) or a dedicated IRC client.
Finally, if you're not already subscribed to ICANN's announcements list, you
may find it helpful to join in order to receive important future
announcements from ICANN. See
<http://www.icann.org/announcements/announcements.htm> for instructions.
We look forward to seeing you online during the meetings!
