WHOIS Technical Requirements Survey Webinar
23 May 2012

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.

The Generic Names Supporting Organization (GNSO) Council's WHOIS Survey Working Group (WSWG) requests community input on a draft WHOIS Technical Requirements Survey, to assess the content of the survey before releasing it for public solicitation.  In parallel with the Public Comment period, the Working Group is hosting two webinar sessions to brief the community on the background of this effort and to solicit input from experts on technical requirements for a new WHOIS protocol, in particular people knowledgeable about technical aspects of WHOIS who can help assess if the survey asks the right questions and in the right style to elicit useful and clear technical feedback.  The Working Group seeks specific suggestions on changes to language and questions that will make it clearer for experts to complete.

Members of the Working Group will provide a briefing on Friday 1 June at 13.00 UTC and Friday 1 June at 20.00 UTC, summarizing the purpose of this effort and reviewing the work called for in the Working Group's charter.

The webinars will also review the sections of the survey as they relate to the proposed technical requirements outlined in the GNSO WHOIS Service Requirement Report - http://gnso.icann.org/issues/whois/whois-service-requirements-final-report-29jul10-en.pdf that was prepared by Staff at the GNSO Council's request in July 2010.

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 the opportunity to ask questions at the end of the 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 recording of the session 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.
