*900-1200: Workshop. IDNs

> This workshop will provide detailed information about the IDNA protocol. The IDNA protocol is a mechanism to handle non-ASCII characters in domain names in a standard fashion, and it is currently under revision. The protocol is allowing Internet applications, such as browsers, to use domain names with non-ASCII characters by converting them to ASCII labels that the DNS will understand and process. As such the protocol provides the foundation of what characters are considered valid and can be used in IDNs. On top of the protocol restrictions, registry operators will supply additional registration policies to eliminate for example confusion between two visually identical domain names, as much as possible.

The protocol revision is done by the IETF, and as speakers in this session we have the main authors of the proposed revised protocol. They will provide you with important information about what changes are proposed compared to the current version of the protocol, and why these changes are necessary.

1300 - 1430: Workshop: Translation Programme

> This workshop will allow members of the community to hear about developments in the implementation of multilingualism in ICANN, and to see more details of the more than 200 responses to the translation survey conducted in advance of the Paris ICANN meeting.
