Time: 
Wed, 2011-09-28 14:30 - 16:00

Concise Description:
In October 2009, the Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) approved the creation of internationalized country code top-level domains (IDN ccTLDs) in the Internet that use the IDNA standard for native language scripts. In May 2010 the first IDN ccTLD were delegated in the Internet DNS root.

For the First Time in Internet History, Internet users are now able to browse and use the internet domain name system “DNS” in their native languages, having a multilingual DNS will have an economic, social and linguistic effects on the global internet users access to the internet specially the developing countries. IDNs are expected to facilitate easily internet access to a more wider population and encourage more local content development .

The workshop objective is to present the current status of IDN implementations, sharing the best practices and experiences of IDN Top Level Domains Operators and identifying the key challenges facing IDN adoption. The speakers will exchange their experiences in implementing and Operating IDN ccTLDs, show best practices and outline the challenges that might prevent the successful adoptions of IDNs.

Fiona Alexander: IBSA proposal undermines multistakeholder model. There are ways govt can be involved already. eg ICANN GAC. #IGF11 #CIR
