ICANN Cairo: Working Session on Single-Character Names Added to Schedule

ICANN logoICANN has added an open Working Session on Single-Character Second-Level Domain Names to the schedule for Wednesday 5 November 2008, from 1700-1800 Cairo Time. The working session will be in Al Saraya 2-4.

Several gTLD registries have submitted requests to ICANN on the allocation of single-character second-level domain names in their respective gTLDs, including DotCoop, dotMobi and NeuStar, Inc. (.BIZ). More information on these requests can be found at icann.org/en/registries/rsep/. In addition, in June 2008, ICANN solicited public comment on a Single-Character Second-Level Domain Name Allocation Framework document (see announcement at icann.org/en/announcements/announcement-2-13jun08-en.htm).

Participants attending the 33rd International Public ICANN meeting in Cairo, Egypt are welcome to attend this working session.
