WSIS Workshop
Your constituency members are invited to participate in the "Workshop on
the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS): Issues of Relevance
to ICANN and Next Steps" scheduled for Tuesday, 20 July 2004 from 08:30
- 10:00 in the Shangri-La Hotel's Grand Ballroom, Kuala Lumpur.  
All individuals interested in the Internet and management and
coordination of the domain name system (DNS) are encouraged to attend
the Workshop, which will provide information on the United Nation's WSIS
process and issues of direct impact to ICANN.  Proposed output and next
steps for ICANN constituencies/stakeholders regarding WSIS and technical
coordination and management of the DNS also will be discussed. "WSIS" is
a process in which governments are attempting to address a broad range
of international legal, regulatory, economic, and policy issues related
to the Internet. During this process, some governments proposed that an
intergovernmental organization be responsible for "Internet governance,"
a phrase that remains undefined and some consider to include and/or mean
the administration and coordination of the DNS. 
The objectives of the Workshop are to:
1.       Inform ICANN stakeholders and the broader community about
activities, initial outcomes, and upcoming events related to WSIS and
2.      Foster a dialogue and mutual understanding of positions of
different stakeholders on WSIS as it relates to ICANN and other issues
of interest; and 
3.      Enhance stakeholder participation in WSIS as it relates to
ICANN's activities. 
Included below is the Workshop agenda.  Additional meeting information
is posted at  <http://www.icann.org/meetings/kualalumpur/>
We would appreciate it if you would post and distribute this invitation
to your constituency members.
Thank you for your assistance.
