Declaración acerca de la reunión ICANN 52 en Marrakech, Marruecos

Esta página está disponible en:

Tras la reciente solicitud de Marruecos de posponer el torneo "Copa Africana de Naciones" a causa de posibles restricciones de viajes dentro del continente africano, la ICANN está dialogando activamente con los anfitriones de la reunión ICANN 52 en Marrakech.

La ICANN está considerando posponer la reunión en Marrakech, programada entre el 8 y el 12 de febrero de 2015, en vista de la probabilidad de que los ciudadanos de países africanos se vean afectados por restricciones en sus viajes, lo cual reduciría la participación en la reunión. El modelo multisectorial y desde las bases de la ICANN, se cimienta en la participación amplia y activa de las comunidades de distintas regiones geográficas y diversos sectores de la sociedad.

El personal de la ICANN está trabajando en estrecha colaboración con la Junta Directiva y sus representantes de la comunidad.

Si bien aún no se ha adoptado una decisión, la ICANN tiene presente la importancia de brindar actualizaciones e información acerca de los próximos pasos respecto de la situación y la sede de la reunión ICANN 52.

Domain Name System
Internationalized Domain Name ,IDN,"IDNs are domain names that include characters used in the local representation of languages that are not written with the twenty-six letters of the basic Latin alphabet ""a-z"". An IDN can contain Latin letters with diacritical marks, as required by many European languages, or may consist of characters from non-Latin scripts such as Arabic or Chinese. Many languages also use other types of digits than the European ""0-9"". The basic Latin alphabet together with the European-Arabic digits are, for the purpose of domain names, termed ""ASCII characters"" (ASCII = American Standard Code for Information Interchange). These are also included in the broader range of ""Unicode characters"" that provides the basis for IDNs. The ""hostname rule"" requires that all domain names of the type under consideration here are stored in the DNS using only the ASCII characters listed above, with the one further addition of the hyphen ""-"". The Unicode form of an IDN therefore requires special encoding before it is entered into the DNS. The following terminology is used when distinguishing between these forms: A domain name consists of a series of ""labels"" (separated by ""dots""). The ASCII form of an IDN label is termed an ""A-label"". All operations defined in the DNS protocol use A-labels exclusively. The Unicode form, which a user expects to be displayed, is termed a ""U-label"". The difference may be illustrated with the Hindi word for ""test"" — परीका — appearing here as a U-label would (in the Devanagari script). A special form of ""ASCII compatible encoding"" (abbreviated ACE) is applied to this to produce the corresponding A-label: xn--11b5bs1di. A domain name that only includes ASCII letters, digits, and hyphens is termed an ""LDH label"". Although the definitions of A-labels and LDH-labels overlap, a name consisting exclusively of LDH labels, such as""icann.org"" is not an IDN."
