An update on the Internet Society’s activities related to combatting spam The ITU and the Internet Society have a letter of agreement to collaborate on combatting the global problem of spam . As part of that ongoing collaboration, the Internet Society and the ITU co- organised a thematic workshop  at the 2016 WSIS Forum in Geneva on 6 May 2016 to address the specific challenges faced by emerging economies. In partnership with M3AAWG and the London Action Plan, ISOC has completed online training resources that can be delivered as self paced tutorials or moderated online courses. Active promotion will start this month. The anti-spam toolkit  on our website has had a refresh. We welcome suggestions for additional information and materials for this resource.  https://www.internetsociety.org/news/itu-and-internet-society- collaborate-combat-spam  https://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2016/Agenda/Session/152  http://www.internetsociety.org/spamtoolkit V. Internet Society Q2 Community Forum (21 April 2016) This quarter’s community forum covered the topics of personal data protection and data breaches. It was an opportunity to introduce the topic of this year’s Global Internet Report and gather input on the issues and possible solutions. We had a very enthusiastic discussion aided by simultaneous French and Spanish interpretation and captions. VI. G7 ICT Ministerial On April 29, the Internet Society’s CEO and President, Kathy Brown, was invited to participate at the Multistakeholder Conference on ICT, which preceded and officially opened the proceedings of the G7 ICT Ministerial meeting. Kathy was asked to speak about multistakeholder governance in the context of cybersecurity. The contributions she made were then forwarded to the Ministers and informed their final deliberations. The Internet Society was the only NGO asked to contribute on issues of substance during the preparatory phase of the G7. The Internet Society was also the only international organization working on the Internet to be invited to participate in the Multistakeholder conference. Kathy’s focus on the conference was on moving forward the discussions on the multistakeholder model and on collaborative security. Details about her contributions can be found here: https://www.internetsociety.org/blog/ public-policy/2016/04/way-g7-ict-ministers-meeting-japan- multistakeholder-approaches-needed and here: https:// www.internetsociety.org/blog/public-policy/2016/05/reflections-g7-ict- ministers-meeting VII. IANA Transition The Draft New ICANN Bylaws are currently out for a 30-day public comment from 21 April – 21 May to allow any interested party to review and provide feedback on the Bylaws. This timeline allows for comments to be analyzed and incorporated in time for the ICANN Board to consider adoption of the new ICANN Bylaws on or about 27 May 2016 by the ICANN Board. Once new Bylaws have been adopted, ICANN will notify NTIA. NTIA has stated that it needs to see that changes to the Bylaws have been adopted sufficient to implement the Transition Proposals before it can complete its review of the Transition Proposals. Once adopted, the Bylaws are expected to go into effect in the event NTIA approves of the IANA Stewardship Transition Proposal and the IANA Functions Contract expires. VIII. Tech Fellows Program for IETF 95 The Tech Fellows Program for IETF 95 Buenos Aires was delivered successfully. There were 16 Fellows from 11 countries, including Brazil, Costa Rica, Bolivia, Venezuela, Argentina, India, Pakistan, Morocco, Ethiopia, and Benin. A number of fellows presented/participated in working groups or other activities. - Nabil Benamar presented 2 drafts. - Raphael Rosa presented 1 draft. - Dessalegn Yehuala presented about his experience as the Chair of ICANN’s Ethiopic Script Rule Set initiative. A role for which he credits the fellowship as a key impetus. - Ramanou Biaou participated in the Hackathon. - Matheus Prola was involved in Codematch. IX. ISOC Tech Fellows to IETF - Survey ISOC is completing a survey of past Tech Fellows to IETF (2006-2015). The survey assesses: (1) What are the subsequent contributions to IETF and open standards processes (2) What former Fellows are doing to promote IETF and open standards in their communities - for example, academic research and remote hubs (3) How they are currently engaged in other technical and policy discussions and with ISOC Survey results will be used to (1) provide an update to ISOC staff, the Board, and IETF leadership and (2) refine the programme. The summary report will be available in June. X. IXP Development ISOC partnered with NSRC to provide BGP/IXP training in Islamabad, Pakistan from April 18-22. Pakistan has a strong technical and NREN community, and the Islamabad IXP likely will be launched in the next 5-6 months.

2.6. RFC Editor Liaison Report
–Begin RFC Editor Liaison Report, Heather Flanagan–
Project Updates - Format status (including planning for future tutorials) The format documents are largely finished, with a few still outstanding as the authors finish validating the information via automated tests. While those documents are wrapping up, the RSE is starting to pull together a plan for tutorials on how to use the features described in the format documents to the best effect in an RFC. Exact details for the tutorials are, of course, dependent on the availability of the new tools. The tutorials are expected to be developed in consumable chunks, such that an author can either choose to read/view a specific component related to a specific feature, or read/view the full tutorial series for a solid grounding on how to create an I-D or RFC in the new format. - Stats and Metrics project The project is nearly complete, with the vendor and the RPC now working on some specific details of labeling and export of the graphs. The final report required is the errata report. The new code will be used to create the necessary reports for the next IETF meeting and to generate the figures that go on the reports summary pages. - Digital Signatures The technical hurdles to digitally signing RFCs have been resolved. Russ Housley is updating draft-housley-rfc-and-id-signatures with the new details, and the RFC Production Center and Publisher are looking into the implementation details. Face to Face meeting, May 2016 - The IETF, IAB, and IAOC chairs, as well as the IETF Administrative Director, the RFC Series Editor, and AMS met in Herndon, Virginia, to discuss current activities and relationships among the group. The RSE reported on the RFC Format project, discussed the issues and resolutions for the Digital Signatures project, and plans for future tutorials. The RSE also mentioned that we will review the new SLA numbers after a year to evaluate their validity against the expectations of the document streams. Presentation at the Society for Scholarly Publishing - The RSE will be presenting as part of a half-day seminar at the upcoming Society for Scholarly Publishing conference, to be held in Vancouver, BC. The topic of the workshop is standards in publishing. More information is available online at: https://www.sspnet.org/events/ annual-meeting-2016/2016-schedule/seminar-2-smart-linking-supplemental- data/ RPC Report - https://www.rfc-editor.org/report-summary/ - Documents are moving steadily to AUTH48 from a surge in the EDIT queue late last year.
