Subject: Expert Working Group on gTLD Directory Services (EWG) Final Report

Dear All:

The Expert Working Group on gTLD Directory Services (EWG) has issued their Final Report<https://www.icann.org/en/system/files/files/final-report-06jun14-en.pdf>. Given your group's interest in this topic, I wanted to bring this to your attention, along with the public sessions the EWG has scheduled at the ICANN London meeting:

 *   An introduction to the Final Report: EWG Overview of Final Report<http://london50.icann.org/en/schedule/mon-ewg-final-overview>, Monday, 23 June, 1515 - 1615
 *   Two cross-community discussion sessions:
    *   EWG Final Report Discussion Session<http://london50.icann.org/en/schedule/mon-ewg-final-discussion>, Monday, 23 June, 1700 - 1900
    *   EWG Final Report Discussion Session<http://london50.icann.org/en/schedule/wed-ewg-final-discussion>, Wednesday, 25 June, 0800 - 1000

The Final Report fulfills the ICANN Board's directive to help redefine the purpose and provision of gTLD registration data, and provides a foundation to help the ICANN community (through the GNSO) create a new global policy for gTLD directory services. This report represents the culmination of an intense 15 month period of work during which this diverse group of volunteers<https://www.icann.org/resources/pages/gtld-directory-services-2013-02-14-en> created an alternative to today's WHOIS to better serve the global Internet community -- a next-generation Registration Directory Service (RDS).

The EWG looks forward to discussing this with the ICANN community. Thank you for sharing this notice broadly.
