If you’re familiar with the process and nature, please do go ahead and
create a proposal.

We can help with collateral, presentations, and a speaker.

Perhaps the following:

An introduction to Universal Acceptance

Two marked changes in the Internet name space have occurred, but are not
widely adopted.  Hundreds of new Top Level Domains (including IDNs) and
support for non-ascii mailbox names in email (EAI - Email Address

This presentation will provide an introduction to the topics, an
introduction to the Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG -
www.uasg.tech) and the work that is underway to provide documentation,
resources, and mitigation efforts.

The presentation will actively seek out participants from the conference
attendees who will be able to share what they learn when they return home.


Internationalisation and Unicode in domain names and email addresses -
practical steps toward universal acceptance

This presentation will introduce Universal Acceptance and the Universal
Acceptance Steering Group (UASG - www.uasg.tech) and outline the work that
is underway to facilitate acceptance of all domain names and all email


Perhaps something else.

Hello, colleagues:

I'm a big fan of, and regular participant in, the annual
Internationalization and Unicode Conference (IUC), brought to us by the
people who brought us Unicode. I imagine that people who are interested in
Universal Acceptance are likely to be interested in this conference, and
may well have important contributions they could make to it.

So, #1, I'd like to make everyone in UASG aware that the IUC has a call for
participation. The deadline for proposals is Friday, 24. March, 2017.
Please consider proposing a talk if you have something that the IUC
audience would benefit from.

And, #2, I don't recall there being a proper presentation of the UASG
activity at the IUC conference. (Dave Crocker gave a 5-minute "lightning
talk" about Universal Acceptance and the UASG, but that was barely enough
time to say that it existed.)

I would like to see a proposal about the Universal Acceptance Initiative
submitted to the conference this year. If someone is already working on
this, I would like to talk to you off-list and see if it makes sense to
work together. If there is no existing effort, I would like to start one. I
welcome collaboration. I will see to it that a proposal gets submitted.

Best regards,
       --Jim DeLaHunt
