GNSO Next-Generation Registration Directory Services to replace WHOIS Policy Development Process Working Group Face to Face Meeting

Sign up or log in to save this event to your list and see who's attending!

Overview: This is a face-to-face meeting of the GNSO Policy Development Process Working Group on a next-generation gTLD Registration Directory Service (RDS) to replace WHOIS (Next-Gen RDS). This Working Group has been tasked by the GNSO Council to provide it with recommendations on the following questions: What are the fundamental requirements for gTLD registration data and is a new policy framework and next-generation RDS needed to address these requirements? The majority of this WG meeting is expected to focus upon using available inputs to develop a comprehensive and inclusive list of possible requirements for gTLD registration data and directory services.
Who should attend and why: Community members that collect, store, provide, or use registration data using the WHOIS system today have a vested interest in the outcome of this PDP. The WG is currently gathering available inputs and possible requirements for gTLD registration directory services. This session provides an opportunity for WG members, WG observers and guests to help shape possible requirements to be deliberated upon by this WG. The WG will strive to reach consensus on requirements, using them to decide if and why a next-generation RDS is needed to replace WHOIS.
What to expect from this session: This session will be led by RDS PDP WG chair Chuck Gomes, supported by vice chairs David Cake, Susan Kawaguchi, and Michele Neylon and by ICANN Policy Staff members Marika Konings and Lisa Phifer. During this session, the WG will focus on making progress on near-term tasks outlined in the WG's work plan (see https://community.icann.org/x/oIxlAw and the session agenda).
This meeting will be open to both WG members, WG observers and guests. For further information about this PDP, please see https://community.icann.org/x/rjJ-Ag.
