We have noticed the existence of an organisation claiming to organise the ICANN 2018 conference without any authorization from the ENNS. The organisation, called WASET, has a long history of “organising” thousands of conferences every year with the aim of earning money with the registration fees.
ENNS declines any relation with the above mentioned organisation and discourages anybody from participating to their events.
