The international Domain pulse conference was held in Winterthur on Monday and Tuesday under the heading of ‘Critical Internet infrastructure: maintaining sovereignty and protecting against abuse’. This year’s two-day event was organised by SWITCH, the registry for .ch domain names.
Domain pulse, the annual domain conference for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, returned to Switzerland on 6 and 7 February 2023. The conference revolved around the question of how politicians and operator organisations can maintain sovereignty over the Internet, protect it from attacks and make it more resilient to failure in times of international conflict. Around 300 participants attended presentations and panel discussions with national and international experts – both from within and outside the Internet industry.
