GAC Meetings typically contain a number of forms of documentation that are published on this website for public information. At meetings there are presentations and various types of papers distributed; in addition, at the end of every ICANN meeting a formal communiqué is issued by the GAC, commenting on the issues that have been discussed. Finally, transcripts of open sessions are released a few weeks after meetings. 

Since mid-2013, GAC meetings have been open, except for the Communiqué drafting sessions. This was the case at ICANN 52, ICANN 51, ICANN 50, ICANN 49, ICANN 48 and ICANN 47. This means that anyone can attend a GAC meeting or follow the meeting live online in real-time, or consult detailed meeting records after the meeting.
