3. Summary report of Monterey DNSO Meeting
The second DNSO formulation consultation meeting was held in Monterey, Mexico in 1998.11.15-17. This is the informal summary report of the meeting. See www.dnso.org for the meeting minutes.
(1) Around 40 people participated the meeting, similar to the first meeting in Bercelona in October 1998. Participation from Asia-Pacific was very small. Some trademark organizations such as INTA and CASIE participated, but not ICC nor WIPO. gTLD registries such as NSI/InterNIC did not participate this time either even though NSI participated the ad hoc meeting in Boston in the previous week.
(2) We had (rough) consensus on structure, representation and funding this time, and decided to proceed to submit the application to ICANN by the end of this year as recommendated by ICANN. Others may be applying, too.
(3) DNSO structure and each constituency’s representation to Names Council are as follows;
Names Council as the executive committee of DNSO
5 Constituencies 21
Infrastructure and Connectivity Providers(ISP, Telco,..) 3
General Business(for- and non-profit) 3
At Large(Other organizations and individuals) 3
Fair Hearing Panel(Option)
(4) We set up the following teams to carry on the future work for DNSO formulation.
Articulation, Liaison, Outreach
Minutes and Application Document
We agreed to particularly emphasize on the outreach to include as many stakeholders as possible to DNSO. [hope many AP* organizations to participate in various constituencies of DNSO.]
Remark: The next ICANN Meetings will be held in March 1999 in Singapore along APRICOT, and 3 Supporting Organizations(Domain Name, Address, and Protocol) are expected to be official approved then. The detail will be announced shortly.(www.icann.org)
We need to agree with other major stakeholders such as NSI and ICC prior to submission of the DNSO application to ICANN, or we will be forced to coordinate after the application submission.
