Abstract: We seek to present on behalf of the internet service providers and connectivity providers (ISPCP) constituency in ICANN. The ISPCP is conducting outreach to engage ISPs and constituency providers who are impacted by issues currently being debated and decided within ICANN's multistakeholder community. The results of these discussions will have major consequences, yet the level of direct engagement by many in our community remains low. The ISPCP presentation will begin with an introduction to ICANN, its key role and structure, and how the ISPCP fits within ICANN. We will then discuss two current topics of major consequence to ISPs and connectivity providers, resulting from the massive introduction of new generic top level domains (gTLDs): name collisions and universal acceptance of new top level domains (TLDs). ISPCP members are on the frontlines as these developments unfold, as the first point of contact for any operational problems that customers may encounter. We should be prepared to understand the issues, minimize any problems, and engage on solutions.
