ICANN Elects Dr. M. Stuart Lynn as New President & CEO

January 23, 2001 (Marina del Rey, California, USA) - The Internet
Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) announced today that
the Board of Directors has elected Dr. M. Stuart Lynn to succeed Michael
Roberts as President and Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Lynn will take
office at the conclusion of the Board's next meeting in Melbourne,
Australia, March 10-13, 2001. Mike Roberts, ICANN's current President
and CEO, has held the position since October 1998 and has overseen the
start-up of the organization.

Dr. Lynn has had a distinguished career in computing and information
technology that dates back almost four decades. His most recent position
until his retirement in 1999 was as Associate Vice President for
Information Resources and Communications for the University of
California Office of the President where he served as chief information
officer for the combined University of California system. Dr. Lynn also
served as President and Chairman of the Board of the Corporation for
Education Network Initiatives in California (CENIC).

"We are incredibly fortunate to have found someone with Stuart Lynn's
extensive and varied technical and managerial background to succeed Mike
Roberts," said Vint Cerf, Chairman of the ICANN Board of Directors. "Dr.
Lynn will bring the energy, experience and skills needed to forge
consensus from the diversity of Internet constituencies that have
interest in ICANN and its work. I look forward to working with Stuart,
the Board and the ICANN staff during the coming year." Cerf also served
as the chairman of the Executive Search Committee.

The election of Dr. Lynn concludes a global executive search process
that began in November 1999 and included consideration of more than 300
members of the global Internet community. That input resulted in an
impressive slate of qualified candidates from each of ICANN's five
global regions.

"I am honored to have been chosen for such a unique and challenging
position and look forward to working with all of the members of the
Internet community around the world to achieve ICANN's technical
mission," said Dr. Lynn.

Dr. Lynn has also held positions at Cornell University, UC Berkeley,
Rice University, Baylor College of Medicine, IBM and Chevron. Over the
course of his career he has been active in several professional
organizations including the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM)
and the American Federation of Information Processing Societies. In
1994, he was elected a Fellow of the ACM. In addition, he has served on
numerous boards of directors, advisory committees and as a consultant to
academia, government and industry.

Dr. Lynn holds a M.A. and Ph.D. in Mathematics from the University of
California at Los Angeles and a B.A. and M.A. in Mathematics from Oxford
University. A British citizen by birth, Dr. Lynn is now a citizen of the
United States and resides in Palm Springs, California with his family.

The Internet's ever-increasing points of connection to almost every
element of 21st century life have prompted strong interest in
understanding the social aspects of cyberspace. The popular press
offers wave after wave of speculation and vague forecasts, but what
is really needed to help us understand how to live in our wired world
is research: research that is collaborative, international, and

In September 2000, over 300 people attended the first international
Conference of the Association of Internet Researchers (AoIR) at the
University of Kansas. This Conference built connections among
Internet researchers from across a range disciplines and from around
the globe. In October of 2001, INTERNET RESEARCH 2.0 will offer an
opportunity to reinforce and extend these connections. IR 2.0 will
bring together prominent scholars, researchers, practitioners, and
students from many disciplines and fields for a program of keynote
addresses, paper presentations, formal discussions, and informal

IR 2.0 will be held on the campus of the University of Minnesota, one
of the world's most technologically innovative campuses. The
conference will provide opportunities to network, learn from other
researchers, hear from leading players in Internet development, and
take in the sights and sounds of the Twin Cities of Minneapolis and
St. Paul.

The Association of Internet Researchers invites paper, presentation,
and panel proposals on topics that address social, cultural,
political, economic, and aesthetic aspects of the Internet. We
welcome submissions from any discipline, as well as work from those
producing new media or working in multimedia studies. Panel
presentations which establish connections across disciplines,
institutions and/or continents are especially encouraged. We also
seek presentations which will make creative use of Internet
technologies and techniques, including (but not limited to) digital
art and e-poster sessions.

We suggest the following as possible themes for proposals.

* communication-based Internet studies
* digital art
* distance education and pedagogy
* e-commerce and business
* gender, sexualities, and the Internet
* human-computer interaction (HCI)
* international perspectives on the Internet
* Internet technologies
* law and the Internet, including privacy and copyright issues
* methodological issues in Internet studies
* new media and Internet journalism
* psychology and the Internet
* the "Digital Divide"
* race and cyberspace
* rhetoric and technology

This list is not meant to be exclusive, but rather to trigger ideas
and encourage submissions from a range of disciplines. When we are
able to identify scholars from a range of disciplines pursuing shared
themes, we will work to bring these scholars together for panel

When preparing proposals, please consider the convention's conventions:

* Most conference sessions will be 90 minutes, with no less than the
final thirty minutes reserved for discussion.

* The average time allotted for a paper or presentation will be 15

If these time constraints are not appropriate for your
panel/presentation, please highlight this in your proposal. Also,

presentations. For panel proposals, the session organizer should
submit a 150-250 word statement describing the panel topic, including
abstracts of up to 250 words for each paper or presentation in the

Graduate students are highly encouraged to submit proposals. They
should note their student status with their submissions, and, if they

Student Award will have conference fees waived. Conference organizers
are working to ensure that IR 2.0 is affordable for graduate
students, and indeed, for all attendees. Details of anticipated costs
will be posted to the conference website (
