Dear All,

APRALO organizes a webinar on IDNs and I'd like to extend this 
invitation to all of you. Indeed, this is an introductory webinar from 
an end-user perspective, still it can be of interest to many. Please, 
help us spread the word about it.

The details in the text below.

Thank you.

Best regards,
Lianna Galstyan



Dear all,

On behalf Satish Babu and Justine Chew, the Co-Chairs of the 
APRALO Policy Forum, we would like to invite you to join the *APRALO 
Webinar on "Internationalized Domain Names: Advancing the IDN Agenda for 
a More Inclusive Internet"* scheduled for *Tuesday 27 July 2021 at 08:00 
UTC for 90 mins*.

The GNSO Council had in June 2021 initiated the Expedited Policy 
Development Process on Internationalized Domain Names (EPDP on IDNs) to 
provide it with policy recommendations on the definition of all generic 
top-level domains (gTLDs); management of variant labels; and how the IDN 
Implementation Guidelines should be updated in the future.

Given the particular importance of IDNs for the Asia-Pacific region 
given its linguistic and cultural diversity, the APRALO Policy Forum 
has, in association with the At-Large Capacity Building Working Group 
(CBWG), organized this introductory Webinar on IDNs to assist in 
building the capacity of our RALO members and other interested At-Large 
members to engage meaningfully in the work of the EPDP on IDNs.

The webinar will provide attendees with an introductory understanding of 
IDNs from an end-user perspective, and will cover topics such as the 
basic concepts; the work done on IDNs since its launch in 2011; the 
process of delegation of IDNs into the Root Zone; IDN Variants and their 
management; IDN-based aspects of Subsequent Procedures; and the context 
of the EPDP on IDNs.

The 3 speakers joining webinar moderator, *Satish Babu*, are:

*1. Emily Taylor, CEO, Oxford Information Labs
2. Sarmad Hussain, Sr Director, ICANN UA & IDN Programs
3. Justine Chew, ALAC Member & At-Large liaison for Subsequent Procedures*

*Agenda & Speaker Profiles*: https://community.icann.org/x/x4n8CQ 

*Languages*: English, Chinese


Please join us and share this invitation widely. All welcome!

Thank you.

Kind regards,

ICANN Policy Staff in support of the At-Large Community
