Dear All,

There will be a WHOIS study group teleconference on Tuesday 8 July at 15:00 UTC
that is: 08:00 PDT (California), 10:00 CDT (Cedar Rapids), 11:00 EDT 
(Washington DC), 16:00 BST (London), 17:00 CEST (Brussels).

See below for dial-in information.

The GNSO Council at its open meeting in Paris, on Wednesday, 25 June 2008, 
unanimously passed the following WHOIS motion as amended.


On 27 March 2007 the Council resolved to form a group of volunteers to review 
and discuss the 'Report on Public Suggestions on Further Studies of WHOIS'; 
develop a proposed list, if any, of recommended studies for which ICANN staff 
will be asked to provide cost estimates to the Council; and deliver the list of 
recommendations with supporting rationale not later than 24 April 2008

On 16 April the Government Advisory Committee submitted to the ICANN Board 
recommendations for future studies of WHOIS

On 22 May the group of volunteers submitted a report to the Council offering 
two opposing viewpoints on whether studies of WHOIS should be conducted

There was not agreement in the Whois Studies volunteer group regarding whether 
or not any studies should be conducted.

Before finalizing a decision regarding whether any studies should be conducted, 
it should be useful to

1) understand the full set of hypotheses to be tested,
2) determine which of those hypotheses, if tested, might provide useful 
direction with regard to Whois policy, and
3) to ensure that the collection of hypotheses adequately cover alternative 
view points with regard to Whois policy.


To reconvene another group of volunteers, which may include members of the 
earlier group and/or new volunteers to:

Review the study recommendations offered through the public comment period and 
the studies requested by the GAC and, based on those recommendations and that 
request, prepare a concise list of hypotheses.
Deliver a report containing the above with any supporting rationale to the 
Council within 6 weeks.
The Council will then decide whether any potential studies should be further 
considered, and if so, identify hypotheses that it would like the staff to 
determine cost, feasibility, potential methodology, and estimated time frames 
for testing.

If you participated in the WHOIS study group and would like to be removed from 
the list and not participate in this group, please let me know.
