Update on Cross Community Working Groups
What It's About: An update on the GNSO's recent decision to convene a cross-community drafting team with other SOs and ACs to develop a set of operating principles for future cross community Working Groups
Background: The GNSO Council had approved an initial set of principles developed by a GNSO Drafting Team in 2012 and requested feedback from the other SOs and ACs. The ccNSO provided detailed comments and suggestions, on the basis of which the GNSO intends to convene a new DT to comprise participants from all interested SOs and ACs, co-chaired by the ccNSO. ICANN Staff has prepared a paper summarizing the draft principles and ccNSO feedback, and will present its recommendations to the GNSO for the way forward in this session.
Who Should Attend: Anyone interested in developing principles for the effective functioning of cross community WGs on policy issues of common interest across SOs and Acs.

Background: The GNSO has commissioned several studies on various aspects of the publicly-accessible Whois gTLD data directory system. This session will be an update on the two remaining studies – on Privacy and Proxy Service Abuse, which was recently published for public comment, and on Whois Misuse, which was recently completed and will be published for public comment following the Buenos Aires meeting. The GNSO will also consider how the results of these studies can inform ICANN's ongoing efforts to refine the provision of gTLD data directory services.
