Please see below information on two webinars scheduled for 16 February that
will discuss the interim report of the Internationalized Registration Data
Working Group (IRD-WG).
Dear ICANN community,
On 26 June 2009 the ICANN Board approved a resolution (2009.06.26.18:
<http://www.icann.org/en/minutes/resolutions-26jun09.htm#6>) requesting that
the GNSO and the SSAC, in consultation with staff, convene an
Internationalized Registration Data Working Group (IRD-WG) comprised of
individuals with knowledge, expertise, and experience in these areas to
study the feasibility and suitability of introducing display specifications
to deal with the internationalization of registration data.
The working group has produced an interim report that discusses several
potential models for internationalizing domain registration data, and is
seeking feedback from the community about the models and on other key
questions via a Public Forum that is open until 14 March 2011. See the link
The working group will provide an online briefing (webinar) on February 16
2011 at 14.00 and 20.00 UTC. We welcome the community's participation.
The two sessions are duplicates, scheduled to accommodate different time
zones. Each session, scheduled to run for 60 minutes, will be conducted in
English only. The meeting will be run in Adobe Connect with a slide
presentation along with a dial-in conference bridge for audio.
Participants will have opportunity to ask questions at the end of each
session. During the course of the webinar, questions may be submitted using
the chat function of Adobe Connect. If you are not able to participate in
either of the live sessions, the slides and MP3 will be made available
shortly after the meeting. The policy staff is always available to answer
any questions that you email to policy-staff at icann.org
<mailto:policy-staff at icann.org> .
In order to participate, please RSVP via email to the GNSO Secretariat
(gnso.secretariat at gnso.icann.org <mailto:gnso.secretariat at gnso.icann.org>)
to receive the call details. Please indicate which call you would like to
join, 14.00 UTC or 20.00 UTC (to convert those times into your local time,
