APRALO-APAC Hub Webinar - What are IDNs and what does it mean to you?

In collaboration with the APRALO Capacity Building Webinar Series

Do you know that characters used in top-level domains (TLDs) extend beyond
ASCII (American Standard Code for Information Interchange) including other
scripts such as Arabic, Chinese, Cyrillic, Devanagari, Japanese and others?
To determine valid TLD labels in these scripts and their variants, however,
community input is very important. Join us to find out more about IDNs at
our webinar session and learn how you can play a part! The proposed agenda
is as follows:


-          Introduction to Mr. Sarmad Hussain, IDN Program Senior Manager at

-          What are Internationalized Domain Names?

-          What does it mean to you?

-          IDN Work at ICANN

-          Sharing by APRALO representative: IDN from the Label Generation
Ruleset (LGR) panel perspective (TBC)

-          Why and how you can be involved

-          Q&A

* Kindly note that Universal Acceptance of IDNs will not be a focus topic at
this introductory presentation.
