ICANN announces a full-day IDN workshop in Vancouver

A full-day IDN workshop will be held during the ICANN meeting in
Vancouver. This workshop will build on discussions concerning deployment
of internationalized top level domains that occurred during the IDN
workshop in Luxembourg.

ICANN is issuing this formal call for papers to those who wish to
actively participate in the sessions on internationalized top level
domain deployment. Presentations should last 15-25 minutes, with time
for questions from the floor. Papers should be submitted by 15 November

The Luxembourg IDN workshop described opportunities associated with the
deployment of internationalized TLDs (sometimes described as "idn.idn").

The Vancouver workshop will focus on various topics, including:

Identifying and assessing IDN TLD implementation issues, and
Potential risks of IDN TLD deployment to a global interoperable Internet.

All interested parties are invited to provide suggestions for topics and
questions that should be addressed during the workshop, to the
IDN-Vancouver Discussion Forum (see below).

Discussion in the on-line forum below is also open for the review of the
following documents. These documents are focused on the implementation
of IDNs at the top level.

National and Local Characters for DNS Top Level Domain (TLD)
