David Olive, Vicepresidente Senior, Desarrollo de Políticas, extiende una cordial bienvenida a todos los que asisten a la reunión ICANN62, el tercer Foro de Políticas y el primero en la región de América Latina y el Caribe. El programa intensivo de la reunión ICANN62 fue estructurado por las Organizaciones de Apoyo y los Comités Asesores de la ICANN, y cuenta con cuatro días de sesiones de difusión, intercomunitarias y de alto interés.

Olive señala lo que promete ser un punto culminante de la reunión: la presentación del Premio Ethos Multisectorial 2018. Este premio anual reconoce a un miembro de la comunidad de la ICANN cuyo servicio sobresaliente en múltiples funciones en toda la comunidad ha ejemplificado los valores de colaboración, cooperación y generación de consenso.

La presentación del Premio Ethos Multisectorial 2018 se llevará a cabo en la sesión de bienvenida en la mañana del lunes a las 8:30 en CC Foyer.

    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"""" is not an IDN."
