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

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 - 
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
