Subject: can you assist in announcing this

To interested IP'ers

The Computer Science and Telecommunications Board of the National
Academies invites you to a briefing at the National Academies on
Thursday, March 31, 2005 to present the findings of a recently completed

"Signposts in Cyberspace: the Domain Name System and Internet

This study examines the performance and prospects of the Domain Name
System from both technical and institutional perspectives, and also
looks at how navigation technologies and institutions facilitate finding
and accessing Internet resources.
The DNS and Internet navigation serve as the public "face" to most users
of the Internet. Their workings, and the workings of the myriad
technical systems and institutional arrangements that make them
possible, shape the value of the Internet in important ways.  Sound
public policy about them is thus critical to sustaining the utility and
accessibility of this increasingly essential resource.

"Signposts in Cyberspace" both describes the evolution of the
technologies and institutions that have supported the growth of the
Internet and provides the basis for future decisions that will enable
its productive evolution.

Leading the discussion will be Dr. Roger Levien, Chair of the
multi-disciplinary study committee that produced the report. He will be
joined by members of the committee.

The briefing will be from 11 am to 12 pm.
