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 at http://www.icann.org/en/public-comment/#ird.

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, see: http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html <http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedform.html> ). We will send you an e-mail reminder before the event with log-in and dial-in details. Please DO NOT RSVP to any other ICANN staff members e-mail address.

Warm regards,
ICANN Policy Development Support
