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.
