 Hi Julia, Bart and Glen,

Following up with the room allocation/schedule for the JIG sessions in Beijing 
from the discussions on the call.

Currently the session is scheduled for:
Joint ccNSO / GNSO IDN Working Group (JIG)
Date: 8 April 2013 - 16:30 - 18:15      
Room: Function 8AB

Currently, the session on Monday overlaps with the APRALO Roundtable on IDN 
I wonder if it is possible to move it to:

1530-1700 in Function 8AB

Also, as sent earlier in the email to the WG mailing list and discussed in the 
call, would like to change the session title and description to:

Acceptance of IDN TLDs: Community Recommendations for ICANN Actions

Based on practical operational experience, not all systems (e.g. browsers, spam 
filters, registration databases, user profiles, ISPs, etc.) work seamlessly 
when new TLDs are added.  Users may experience failures in resolution or other 
issues with newer TLDs, which in turn impacts consumer trust on the DNS.  The 
issue of the Universal Acceptance of TLDs (Top-Level Domains) is critically 
related to the introduction of new gTLDs, as well as the introduction of IDN 

This session will focus on the 4 key recommendations from the working group to 
address the issue:

A. Recommend IDN TLD operators (including IDN ccTLD, IDN gTLD and IDN gTLD 
Accredited Registrars) to support Universal Acceptance of IDN TLDs in their own 

B. Allocate specific resources for the advocacy of Universal Acceptance beyond 
the development of informational materials and toolkits

C. Development of informative reference materials for new IDN TLDs (including 
gTLD and ccTLD) to handle issues of Universal Acceptance

D. Direct efforts, lead by staff, with the participation from the community, 
for further studies to investigate the scope of the issue and what other 
services or actions could be taken by ICANN to support the Universal Acceptance 
of IDN TLDs beyond outreach and awareness campaigns

Who should attend?
Registrars and Registries, New gTLD Applicants, New IDN ccTLDs.
