因應嚴重特殊傳染性肺炎疫情(COVID-19)第二屆ICANN APAC-TWNIC Engagement Forum延期通知

為因應嚴重特殊傳染性肺炎之重要通知與更新

ICANN APAC、APNIC與TWNIC在多方考量後於今日決定將第二屆ICANN APAC-TWNIC Engagement Forum 與第34屆TWNIC IP政策資源管理會議延期至今年下半年。

由於嚴重特殊傳染性肺炎疫情仍在發展,第二屆ICANN APAC-TWNIC Engagement Forum 與第34屆TWNIC IP政策資源管理會議將延期至今年下半年舉辦。活動主辦機構ICANN APAC、APNIC及TWNIC在考量目前肺炎疫情發展與世界衛生組織已正式聲明武漢肺炎為國際關注的突發公共衛生事件後共同決定延期。

世衛組織認定中國大陸仍為高風險地區,同時世界各國也有相關個案發生,疫情持續發展的風險不可低估。在嚴重特殊傳染性肺炎疫情的發展下,台灣政府相關單位已宣布對中國大陸、香港、澳門等地區入境台灣者進行限制,這將對過境前述地區的會議與會者造成影響。

在目前已有26國發生疫情的情況下,國際旅行亦可能會為講者、與會者或工作人員增加帶來或接觸病毒的風險,為負起身為網路社群一份子的社會責任,我們將會議延後至今年下半年的決定祈望能得到您的諒解。

我們將會持續更新第二屆ICANN APAC-TWNIC Engagement Forum 與第34屆TWNIC IP政策資源管理會議網站 https://forum.twnic.tw以提供您最新訊息。很抱歉因這個決定對您所造成的不便。
