Minutes of 5th CDG meeting

Posted by admin on June 8th, 2010

Adam-sensei’s visit to St Kitts and Nevis in August

St. Kitts and Navis is a Caribbean country and There was a C(Caribbean)-IGF by CTU Adam-sensei attended. Policy frameworks made by CTU is on discussion. As it may be useful, five policy areas are shown below:

– Physical structure

– Logical structure

– Content

– Public awareness and capacity building

– Research

Second theme is local content and IXPs. Local content is under heavy influence of North America and against this, importance of local content is advocated. Local peers are, despite the growth of local Internet markets induced by the deregulation and introduction of competition, still not enough and their growth is an urgent matter. Government’s encouragement to private companies is needed to ensure the local peer development.

Thinking of relation between CTU and ccTLDs, ccTLD policy is an important matter. ccTLD stakeholders tend to regard policy making as a sovereign issue. There is also some concern between ITU and CTU.

Workshop will be held on the second day, 16th , from 16:30 to 18:00. Workshop themes are already uploaded to the site and can be seen from the following URI:

CDG Summary -2008

Posted by admin on June 8th, 2010

Attendants: Kamimura Jay Adam Mikami Chew Arai Kodama

Summary of 2008 Activities

a. Arai reported i-Galaxy database which collects and stores data from NUT and Waseda  Univ.Waseda’’s data contains those from .com domain and CJK data. Rosette is used for language identification. Thus languages of some data remain unanalyzed. Waseda’’s data lacks some features that are contained in NUT’’s data. Arai-kun will gather the requests and send them to Waseda. Another Problem is to improve analyzing speed. Now 5,000 pages is processed a day but this is so slow that some improvement is needed.

b. Chew – His programs under development are DDF (dangerous domain finder), G2LI(Global Information Infrastructure laboratory’s Language Identifier) and G2AT(Global Information Infrastructure laboratory’s Analysis Tool).

DDF needs third party’s data provided by, ex. McAfee to verify the accuracy of collected data. Chew will contact the providers

c. Kamimura visited on Cambodia Laos and mexico. We shall provide short trip report on the person met and some other things. Maybe it is useful to create the template for trip report.

That is used for circulation and periodical report.

d. Adam report on ccTLD redelegation and stakeholders’ function redelegation process, players from various sectors interacts and many conflicts are now occurring. We need to think the shape of charter. It may be difficult to create a single charter that can be applied to domain governors from different origins. Instead, options and subsets should be prepared for them to choose the most appropriate.

Comments from JST

a. Mikami On comments from JST. They say that social implementation is important, that is how to implement our methodology, charter, etc. We should investigate how to do it.

Plan for 2009

a. CDG maturity indexes : NUT is planning on once more crawling this year. Model ccTLD CharternCaribbean Internet Governance Policy framework for all the stakeholders, this will be a model

2009 Workshop

The fourth annual IGF Meeting will be held from 15-18 November in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt organizing original workshop or joining to other workshop. Proposal for workshop deadline 21st Apr. Adam-seisei will register. In 18th Sep., workshop CDG 2009 in Tokyo, it will be organized by Kamimura-sensei.

Coming Meetings 27th May 3PM-6PM 18th Jun 17th Jul. 2PM-5PM
