APDN/APTLD Monthly Update – April 2000
————————————–

1. APTLD Meetings in Seoul, 2000.2.26 – 3.1 
 
There were series of meetings related to APTLD in Seoul as follows;

   2000.2.28 APTLD Domain Names Workshop
   2000.2.29 APTLD Member Meeting
   2000.3.01 Multilingual Names Session during APRICOT’2000

You can find the meeting summary and presentation materials in www.aptld.org.

2. APDN Incorporation

During the meetings, it was decided to rename APTLD to APDN, but keep APTLD
to designate ccTLD activities.  APDN is being incorporated now, and will be
completed sometime this spring.  As the first step, APDN Bylaws are being
revised by the group headed by Dr. Erica Roberts with help of Dr. Tan Tinwee
and Gita.

3. Multilingual Domain Names Consortium(MINC)

During the meeting, it was decided to form a consortium to spin off APTLD
activities on the multilingual Internet names with APTLD blessing.  MINC
BoF was held during Adelaide IETF on March 27.  See the meeting summary in
www.aptld.org.  It was decided to hold the following meetings for MINC
launching;

   2000.5.11-12  Final MINC preparation meeting in San Francisco hosted by ISC
   2000.6.5-6    MINC launching in Tokyo during Interop Tokyo

Various WGs are formed, and active participation from APTLD members are
encouraged.

3. Non-Commercial Constituency of ICANN DNSO

Non-commercial Constituency is raising fund of $5000 to cover one-seventh of
DNSO webcasting in 1999-2000.  So far $2500 have been raised, half of which
are from AP countries.  If you are interested to donate, please contact
