ICANN56 英才计划和 NextGen@ICANN 计划的申请事务通知

1 月 22 日,ICANN 针对将于 2016 年 6 月在巴拿马共和国巴拿马城举行的 ICANN 第 56 届会议启动了 NextGen@ICANN 计划和英才计划的申请轮次。

鉴于拉丁美洲兹卡病毒严重爆发,ICANN 已于 2 月 5 日宣布 ICANN56 将更换会址。目前,寻找不受兹卡病毒影响的新会址的工作正在稳步推进。ICANN 期待着在未来的 ICANN 会议中,有机会返回巴拿马召开会议。

这个消息对项目申请人有什么影响呢?

考虑到 NextGen@ICANN 项目是与会议举办区紧密相连的,因此目前 ICANN 已经暂停了该计划的申请流程,静候新会址的发布。一旦新会址确定,我们将对 ICANN56 的这一计划的状态做出决定。

但合格的英才计划申请人仍旧可在 2016 年 2 月 19 日前提交申请;入选英才计划的学员名单将于 2016 年 3 月 25 日在 ICANN 网站上公开发布。

本轮英才计划申请的特殊之处在于:只有曾经至少参加过一次 ICANN 英才计划的老学员才可提交申请。这一决定源于新的 ICANN 会议战略/ 会议 B 重点关注政策制定和 ICANN 社群的现有工作,因此只有积极参与 ICANN 多利益相关方模型社群活动的本计划老学员才有资格提交申请。

英才计划

ICANN 英才计划项目旨在寻找来自发展中国家的参会人,有助于拓展明智选民的基础,使其能够参与到多利益相关方的流程中来,凭借其经验来表达其所在地区和其他地区的心声。自 2007 年设立以来,英才计划项目已经组建了一个强大的团体,包含一批在互联网生态系统内,活跃在 ICANN 各大社群和各互联网治理实体机构内的参与人。他们的参与方式包括:撰写文章或博客、针对自下而上的政策制定流程提供在线评论或亲自发表评论、参与互联网大会和专家组讨论、在工作组中执笔撰文、为新成员提供指导、为地区领导人提供支持,或是自行成为地区领导人。

NextGen@ICANN 计划(目前不提供针对 ICANN56 的申请机会)

NextGen@ICANN 计划仍旧在会议 A、B 和 C 中举办:这是基于教育和认知的体验计划,针对更年轻、更地区化的更小一群参与人。申请人必须介于 18 至 30 岁之间,居住在会议所在地区,并具备一定的高等教育水平,关注与互联网相关的主题事务。每位入选成员将就社群相关主题发言 5-10 分钟。最新的发言主题包括互联网治理、域名系统和互联网的未来。

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."
