Dear Councilors,

Please join us on 29 November (2:00-6:30pm) in Vancouver at this important conference on international data protection and privacy issues related to the WHOIS database.

We expect a lively and informative exchange on these complex and sensitive issues - so please consider attending this open meeting. Thanks.

See you in Vancouver,


Privacy Conference at Vancouver ICANN Meeting:
Building Bridges on ICANN’s Whois Questions

Tuesday, November 29th,  2:00 PM - 6:30 PM

Sponsors: Noncommercial Users Constituency, Public Interest Registry & The Registry Constituency

++  Draft Agenda  ++

Session I:  Data Protection Commissioners, ccTLDs and Registrars

This session invites Data Protection Commissioners to discuss their data protection laws. It also profiles several ccTLDs and Registrars who have changed their Whois procedures (or are in the midst of changing them) based on these laws. What are the changes? How are they working? How do they allow personal data to be made available to those who need it? (This session will feature considerable time for questions and discussion with the audience.)

Session II: Experts on Other Areas of Internet Privacy

The Whois debate takes place within the larger context of Internet privacy, but in the ICANN community we rarely refer to outside models. How do online service providers, ISPs and others handle requests for personal data in other Internet areas, including chatroom and email identities? What do these models offer in our work on the Whois dilemma?

Session III: Registrars, Registries and NCUC Present Their New Plans for the WHOIS Databases

Registries, Registrar and Noncommercial Users Constituency recently put forward different plans to change the gTLD Whois Database to provide protection for personal data. For the first time in a public forum, they will present and discuss their proposals. (Considerable time for input and discussion with the audience planned.)

Building Bridges to the Public. This Conference will reach out to civic and social Internet-based organization throughout the world. Attracting new organizations with their insights and concerns will help infuse the Conference and GNSO Whois process with a new level of interest and relevance.

Questions/Suggestions. If you have questions, suggestions for speakers, or organizations you think should be invited, please contact Kathryn Kleiman of the Noncommercial Users Constituency at KathrynKl@xxxxxxxx

Open to All
