This is the -draft- NamesCon schedule, which is tentative and subject to revisions as we receive confirmations from keynotes and session panelists.

Are you registered for NamesCon? Conference access is all or nothing. Registered attendees can participate in all content sessions.

There are sessions that have limited capacity, instructional materials, or other limitations, and may require attendees to indicate they will participate. This is particularly the case on Sunday, January 11 for DomainFest @NamesCon and Workshop sessions during NamesCon.

If you see one or more of these sessions that you can’t miss, such as the Chinese Domaining Masterclass or Workshops like the Amazon Route 53 / EC2 buildout session, make sure to use the sched system to indicate it so that the instructors and workshop leaders have a concept of headcount and capacity limits can be respected.

NamesCon attendees are automatically enrolled in the WaterNight event, and it is possible to attend that event if not attending NamesCon. WaterNight-only passes are available through a separate registration at WaterNight.org.

Panel Discussion: Claims ... Can I register -that- domain?
The new gTLD program included numerous rights protection mechanisms to safeguard the rights of others.  One of these was called 'Claim Notice'.

When a new TLD registration has a match at the second level with an entry in the TMCH, the potential registrant is presented with a 'claims' notice during the registration process that they must click on to affirm that they know there is an existing trademark.   

Did you find an amazing generic dictionary word or otherwise perfect domain name under the new TLDs that matches your company (or idea for one) where you were presented this notice?

Find out some practical guidelines on how to respect the rights of others while respecting your own at the same time.    That perfect domain name may actually be available to you.
