Hello all,

It will be exiting to participate in the Latin generation panel work. I have followed the ICANN work for IDN in the root zone during the last couple of years.

I am a native speaker of Swedish, and I live and work in Sweden. I have a BA in Phonetics/Linguistics at Stockholm University, Sweden, many years back. I have also done research work, teaching and never-finalized graduate studies at Stockholm University during the years after I got my BA.

Since 1999 I have worked as DNS specialist both at the .SE TLD and at an ISP in Sweden. The last three years I have worked for IIS (.SE TLD Registry) who is contracted to be the ICANN Pre-Delegation Testing (PDT) Service Provider that tests all the New gTLDs before they are added to the root zone. The PDT includes tests of second level IDN compliance both against the IDN standards and other policy. We have processed thousands of IDN tables, and we have seen many different flavors. Having a background in Linguistics has been helpful in that work. IDN is an interesting intersection of language, culture and DNS.

As I understand, the next meeting in the panel is at 11 January 2017, so talk to you then.

Dear All,

I am pleased to welcome Mats Dufberg, who is the DNS specialist at the Internet Foundation of Sweden (IIS<https://www.iis.se/english/>), to the Latin GP.  Mats comes with a background in linguistics and with extensive experience of working with IDN tables or LGRs at the second level.  I would request Mats to introduce himself in a bit more detail.
