Hello, everyone:

I just heard from the IUC42 organizers that they have extended the 
deadline for the session proposals to the Internationalization and 
Unicode Conference until Friday, 16 March 2018.  See the update at 

FYI, I have proposed three sessions:

 1. a tutorial on "Email addresses and domain names are NON-latin! Now
    what?". This aims to bring someone who doesn't know EAI and IDNs up
    to speed, emphasising breadth of coverage and sacrificing technical
    depth as necessary, preparing them for the presentations in the main
 2. a presentation on "Top issues in Universal Acceptance of non-Latin
    email addresses and domain names". This brings the IUC news about
    what issues are most important recently for Universal Acceptance. It
    doesn't try to explain the technical specs and requirements. I will
    be coming to this group for your nominations of which are "top
    issues in UA".
 3. a presentation on "Implementing Email Address Internationalisation
    (EAI) and International Domain Names (IDNs)". This covers the
    technical specs and requirements of EAI and IDNs, but with more
    brevity than a tutorial. I will emphasise depth over breadth. I see
    it as an alternative to #1, if they want UA content in a shorter form.

I think there is still room for other UA proposals, especially something 
about practical experience rolling out email systems in non-latin 
scripts, e.g. in India.  I would be happy to flood the submission pile 
with UA content. Do you have questions? I am happy to share what I know 
with anyone who is making an IUC42 proposal.

Best regards,
