Call for Subject Matter Experts for the IDN Root Zone LGR Integration Panel
and Advisors to All Panels
6 June 2013
Today, ICANN's IDN Variant TLD Program
<https://www.icann.org/en/resources/idn/variant-tlds> moves forward with
initiating the implementation of the IDN Root Zone LGR Procedure by
publishing the Call for Subject Matter Experts for the IDN Root Zone LGR
Integration Panel 
<https://www.icann.org/en/resources/idn/variant-tlds/experts-lgr-integration

Zone LGR Panels

The IDN Root Zone LGR implementation project will undertake work to develop
the rules that identify the valid repertoire of code points for IDN TLDs, as
well as the rules for identifying and possibly delegating any IDN variant
TLDs. The work is carried out as specified in the "Procedure to Develop and
Maintain the Label Generation Rules for the Root Zone in Respect of IDNA
Labels 
<https://www.icann.org/en/resources/idn/variant-tlds/draft-lgr-procedure-20m

(to be staffed by paid experts), a set of Advisors to all Panels (formed of
paid consultants, volunteers, or ICANN staff), and a set of Generation
Panels (consisting of volunteers). The latter are subject to a separate
call.

Successful development of the IDN Root Zone LGR depends on having
Integration Panel members with the right skills to perform the substantive
work. Therefore ICANN is soliciting the participation of subject matter
experts to serve on the Integration Panel and advisors to the Integration
and Generation Panels.

The Integration Panel will be comprised of a small number of technical
experts in the following areas: DNS, IDNA, Unicode, and linguistics. The
