What it is | At this session ICANN Staff will give an introduction to internationalised domain names (IDNs). The session should cover basic concepts as well as technical rules to be followed if an IDN is considered for future new TLD applications. A short IDNA protocol revision status may be provided as well.

Why it's important | IDNs are functioning differently for different users due to their implementations at the application layer. It is important to understand how this functions and what the implications and possible trade offs are in order to serve your customers and clients best possible.

Who should attend? | All interested in learning basics about IDNs and New TLDs
