Joint ICANN and ITU ccTLD Workshop
Equatorial Hotel, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, 24 July 2004

The purpose of this Workshop is to focus on the operation of a ccTLD and to give the opportunity for ccTLD operators and Member States to share their experiences. This workshop will complement the 3-4 March 2003 ITU-T Workshop on Member States’ Experiences with ccTLDs.

The intent of the Workshop is to exchange information and experiences. It is not a policy meeting, nor a forum in which to reach consensus on contentious issues. The workshop will be an opportunity for presentations, exchanges of views, and discussions. While written submissions are encouraged, they are not required and ample time will be given for discussion.

New attendees, especially in the South and East Asian areas, are encouraged to attend.

The workshop was co-chaired by Mr Hartmut Glaser (.br Registry Services) and Ms Sabine Dolderer (DENIC).
