From 31 May to 2 June CENTR held its annual Jamboree meeting in Prague, kindly hosted by CZ.NIC, the Czech national domain name registry. With more than 190 in-person participants and over 90 online, this is the first time the whole community has gathered in-person since the Jamboree in 2019.
The Jamboree is one of CENTR’s flagship events that brings together the whole CENTR community for three days of cross-working group sessions and networking. This year, all participants gathered in a plenary room to exchange ideas and information on a range of topics, including DNS Abuse, registrant verification and validation, web crawling, the possibility of creating a CENTR ISAC, the NIS 2 directive, registrar agreements, DNSSEC automation and more. For the second year in a row, the CENTR Registrar Day was also held in conjunction with the Jamboree.
Many participants underlined how much they enjoyed meeting people in person again, and how incomparable it is to meeting online. Though different to previous Jamborees, it is clear that there was value in having a single track of sessions, bringing all the working groups together in one room for the three days, as well as the registrars on the last day, to discuss joint issues in the domain name industry as a community.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank CZ.NIC for being such a fantastic host, providing the perfect environment to allow members to meet again and to catch up after two years online. We would also like to thank our Working Group chairs and vice-chairs, and the session participants, without whom it would have been impossible to run this event.
All relevant documents and reports have been made available to CENTR members and the participating registrars on the meeting pages.
