ICANN第52届会议会址迁至新加坡 | 原定于摩洛哥马拉喀什的会议现延至2016年初举行

鉴于社群对下届全球性会议(原定于2015年2月8日至12日举行的ICANN第52届会议)的参会人数颇为担忧,并考虑到本次会议将是对IANA管理权移交和ICANN问责制进行讨论的一次关键性会议,ICANN现决定将原定于摩洛哥马拉喀什召开的会议迁至新加坡举行,会期保持不变。

ICANN董事会在进行了内部讨论,仔细审核了即将在2015年召开的三次会议的后勤因素、可选方案和社群请求,并考虑了举行一次成功会议的需求后,最终通过表决程序做出这一决定。

ICANN一直以来都与摩洛哥政府机构、会议主办方官员和ICANN的支持组织(SO)和咨询委员会(AC)领导们进行着积极磋商。

ICANN第52届会议会址现定为新加坡莱佛士城会议中心,即ICANN第41届会议(2011年6月)和ICANN第49届会议(2014年3月)的会址。

囊括最新信息的会议网站将在不久之后建立。差旅支持团队将按照正常流程联系获得差旅补助的旅行者们,处理他们参加ICANN第52届会议的预订工作。

鉴于非洲地区对于推动ICANN全球化进程尤为重要,董事会因而再次确定有意将2016年初的首次ICANN会议定在摩洛哥马拉喀什召开。

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."
