ICANN 现延长与冠状病毒相关的《差旅和会议指南》的有效期至 12 月 31 日

面临这一前所未有的时期,我衷心希望您和您所关爱的人都能保持安康。尽管 2019 冠状病毒病 (COVID-19) 带来了诸多限制,但社群仍旧承担了大量工作,我们对此感激不尽。

我想告诉大家 ICANN 组织现已根据持续蔓延的疫情调整了其《差旅和会议指南》。

我们的团队通过与全球多位差旅、安全和安保专家展开合作,正持续积极地关注当前形势,遵守来自世界卫生组织 (World Health Organization)美国疾病控制与预防中心 (Centers for Disease Control) 的指示。我们还在采取所有必要防范措施,确保病毒接触和传播程度降至最低。

在与董事会、支持组织和咨询委员会 (SO/AC) 的领导人们一起进行审慎考量和合作后,我们将暂停进行面对面会议和商务差旅的决定有效期延长至 2020 年 12 月 31 日。此外,本组织的员工还将在年底前继续居家办公。简言之,面对这个历史性时刻,对这份指南进行延期是明智而正确的。在关注当前形势期间,我们将定期重审这份指南,并向大家通告任何调整。

我们的社群和员工的健康与安全是我们的头等关切。至少在 2020 年底前,我们认为开始旅行或鼓励集会都是草率的。我们不愿意冒险任由 COVID-19 给我们的社群和员工持续带来长期的健康影响。此外,差旅格局目前尚不稳定,这使得任何差旅都更加复杂且充满风险。

我们深知对许多人来说,这是个极其困难的时期,我们十分想念与大家面对面进行交流、相互联系和开展合作的日子。在这个充满不确定性的时期,我期待着能与大家继续通过虚拟方式进行联系。

    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."
