Don Hollander | Universal Acceptance Initiative Manager
Universal Acceptance is the idea that all domains work in all applications. This is an issue that needs to be addressed by software developers and web site owners because their systems have not kept pace with the growth of the domain name options – including IDNs.
A Universal Acceptance Steering Group (UASG) was formed in the first quarter of 2015 to help coordinate and accelerate acceptance of all domain names in all applications.
This Public Session will provide a brief update to the community on activities underway. This Public Session will also have a panel discussion on activities that the Registry and Registrar communities can undertake to get their own systems UA ready and to promote the idea to their own communities. Panelists and presenters include Ram Mohan, Rinalia Abdul Rahim, Rich Merdinger, Mark Svancarek, Ashwin Rangan and others.
