Attached is a summary of the GNSO's Final Report on the Introduction of New Top-Level Domains for GNSO participants' consideration and use at the GNSO's New gTLD Workshop in Los Angeles on Monday, 29 October, 13:00 - 19:00. This document summarizes the recommendations contained in the Report and notes other work under way to facilitate the introduction of new gTLDs in an orderly and transparent way. Where particularly applicable, it also attempts to briefly provide information about various issues considered by the GNSO Committee and the rationale behind the final wording of principles, recommendations and implementation guidelines. (The Report, which was approved by the GNSO Council last month and is being sent to ICANN's Board for consideration, can be found at <http://gnso.icann.org/issues/new-gtlds/pdp-dec05-fr-parta-08aug07.htm>).

This document is meant to provide a concise and easy to read summary of the key elements of the Report, and is organized to correspond with the Workshop sessions. GNSO constituency members are encouraged to consider the summary, and the Report, and submit questions in advance that they would like the Workshop panelists to address on the 29th. *Questions should be emailed to <new-gtlds-workshop@xxxxxxxxx> or submitted via the on line comment form found on the Workshop web page at <http://losangeles2007.icann.org/node/45>.* Questions will be publicly posted and provided to the Workshop moderator and panelists.

As previously noted, GNSO constituencies are encouraged to attend the special, interactive workshop at ICANN's Los Angeles meeting focused on the GNSO Council's final report on the introduction of new gTLDs. The workshop will feature extensive opportunities for audience comments and questions and Council responses.

We look forward to seeing you in LA.

Vice President, Policy Development
