Hi all,

Many of you are already aware, but the annual RightsCon Summit Series will be in North America in 2018 (Toronto, May 16-18). Hosted by Access Now, RightsCon is where the world’s business leaders, technologists, engineers, investors, activists, human rights experts, and government representatives come together to build partnerships, shape global norms, showcase new technologies, and confront the most challenging issues at the intersection of human rights and technology.


They are currently accepting session proposals: https://www.rightscon.org/submission/ 


ICANN sends staff to the conference from the region each year, and we expect to do so again this year. 


Could be a good opportunity for a CROP trip as well.


Thanks and have a great weekend!
