On April 20, 2011, ICANN announced its approach to move forward with the IDN
Variant TLDs Issues Project by publishing the Final Proposal for the
195 KB] and the Call
for Volunteers<http://www.icann.org/en/topics/new-gtlds/idn-variant-tlds-call-for-volunteers-case-study-teams-20apr11-en.pdf>[PDF,

in the delegation of IDN Variant TLDs.

Today, we are pleased to announce the formation of six case study teams,
comprising a total of 66 experts from 29 countries and territories. In
addition, six organizations are in the process of being selected to be local
hosts for each of the case studies. A local host organization will provide
meeting and other facilities to support the case studies work. A decision
and announcement will follow shortly.

Individual members are listed at the end of this announcement and they offer
expertise in the following areas: DNS, IDNA, linguistics, security &
scalability, policy, registry/registrar operations, and community

On Saturday, 18 June 2011, all-day project team meetings are being planned
in Singapore at which the case study teams will meet together in plenary
sessions and in individual breakout working sessions.
