STARNBERG, Germany, July 11, 2011 -


Internet pioneer Stephen Crocker will present the keynote speech
at the “ - The Munich Conference on new TLDs” on
September 26th, 2011 in Munich

Stephen Crocker, one of the Internet’s founding architects and
recently named Chairman of the Board of the international
coordinating authority for domain names, ICANN, will present the
keynote speech at the upcoming “ - The Munich
Conference on new TLDs” meeting. His speech on September 26th will
mark the kick-off of the two-day international conference. The
event, which will bring experts in the fields of technology,
trademark law and business from around the world to Munich, will
serve as a platform for discussions centering on ICANN’s newly
adopted program for the introduction of new top-level domain

Being the first of its kind in Europe, the conference offers a
unique opportunity for all interested parties to build valuable
connections and network with experienced industry professionals.
 Additionally, it will deliver answers to all questions
concerning this major change for the Internet

With the introduction of new top-level domains, the Internet
finds itself at a unique point in its young lifetime: until now,
only a small number of endings such as .com, .net, .org or .info
have dominated the Web. Next year however, over 400 applications
for new domain endings such as .shop, .web, .berlin or wholly-owned
suffixes such as .apple, for example, are expected; the resulting
opportunities for Internet users will be as significant as they are

“Who better to open the only event in Europe focusing on this
important topic than one of the people who has had such decisive
influence on the development of the Internet–a tool we all now so
commonly use,” said Markus Eggensperger, co-founder of
united-domains, the host of the conference.

Regarding the upcoming event, Dr. Crocker stated, “The Internet
has experienced unprecedented changes in its 40 year history and
the introduction of new top-level domains will be one such
challenge. I’m delighted that I can contribute the keynote and hope
we can all make the most of this unique moment for the good of the
global Internet community.”
