Dear Ahmed, All,


I will continue to serve TF-AIDN through the transition, at least till the end of June.  Even in my new role, I will be closely working with TF-AIDN/Arabic GP to ensure that its goals are timely achieved.  So I will continue to be involved in a facilitative role.  The only constraint is that I cannot be involved in a leadership role, latter reserved for a community member.

Re: [TF-AIDN] TF-AIDN F2F Meeting in Istanbul

Ive asked the hotel and below is the response. 


The metro starts  <x-apple-data-detectors://0/> at 06:00 am on Sundays. If you are arriving in Ataturk Airport please take the metro until Aksaray and from there you will need to go to the other metro lane to come to Osmanbey station.

Please find the link for the metro guide below.

Hope this would help.

Thank you Fahd for your reply,

So it looks it's the first time in Istanbul for many of those attending,
I found this link hich looks usefull:
 <http://www.wittistanbul.com/magazine/how-to-get-from-the-istanbul-ataturk-airport-to-your-hotel/> http://www.wittistanbul.com/magazine/how-to-get-from-the-istanbul-ataturk-airport-to-your-hotel/

Best options IMHO, that you either take a Taxi from the airport which cost about 20 Euro, or take the HAVATAS Airport Shuttle Bus to Taksim (10TL) and then a Taxi from there to the Hotel. Its only 1.2Km away from where the Bus stops.

Thank you Hazem for your email.

In reply to your questions:

·         Yes, the meeting venue and the accommodation venue are the same place; i.e. Ramada Plaza Istanbul (AKA Ramada Plaza Osmabey)

·         This is the first time for me in Istanbul, too. Thus, I’d suggest you check the airport website at  <http://www.ataturkairport.com/en-EN/Pages/Main.aspx> http://www.ataturkairport.com/en-EN/Pages/Main.aspx for such information. I am unable to do this as I am traveling back home today, and will not have time to investigate this. Any volunteers to check this out?

Hope that helps.

Dear Fahd,

Just to be well directed , I couldn't find any info about where our meeting will take place.  Is it in the same hotel we're staying at or at the ICANN office?

Another issue,  that would be much appreciated if you could tell us the best way to reach the Hotel from the airport,  since that is my first visit to Istanbul.

Friends and Colleagues,

We will start at 08.30 Istanbul time (UTC+3.00), and expect to end at 18.00 Istanbul time.

·         We have an Adobe Connect room at  <https://icann.adobeconnect.com/meswg/> https://icann.adobeconnect.com/meswg/. Those presenting remotely are kindly requested to send me their slide-decks beforehand to be uploaded to Adobe Connect.

Access number: 1.800.5506865 (USA Toll Free Number via Skype)

Please note that these dial-out details MIGHT get changed as I am seeking a top-quality teleconference bridge that would not fail all those who join remotely. I will update you for any changes.

As I am traveling back home on Friday, my access to email might be limited. For any urgent matters, please do not hesitate to call me at 962.79.5111942. If my phone is closed, I most probably would be air-borne.

I look forward to seeing those of you planning on being in Istanbul, and looking forward for a productive meeting.

Thank you, and safe travels to those travelling.

[TF-AIDN] My role in TF-AIDN

Dear All, 
I am planning to join ICANN’s IDN team from next month.  Therefore, it will not be possible for me to continue in my role as a community member and chair for TF-AIDN (and the Arabic GP).  This will mean a new chair for this effort needs to come in.  Baher and Fahd would facilitate the process.    I will of course assist in the smooth transition to the new chair for TF-AIDN and can keep serving in an assistive/coordinative role till that time.   
It has been such a pleasure working with all of you as part of TF-AIDN and I look forward to working with all of you in my new role as well.
