Registration Operations Workshop 2015-1 is scheduled for Sunday, 22 March 2015 from 1230 - 1630 in the Continental Room at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel, the same venue being used for IETF-92. The event is not affiliated with the IETF meeting, but with IETF support we've been able to secure a room that's large enough to host the event. Still, space is limited and seats are going fast. Please register quickly if you haven't already done so. Registered attendees will receive updates via email as we get closer to the event date.

Verisign has set up a web site to provide information and allow people to register. We're asking people to register in advance so we can make appropriate plans for space and refreshments. We're also using a mailing list to share information about the workshop. Subscription info can be found here: 


This list name is "roa@lists.regiops.net". You must be subscribed to the list to post and to view the list archives. 
Remote participants are welcome! We're using WebEx to provide interactive audio and video for remote participation. Please note if you're planning to participate remotely when you register, and join the mailing list to receive timely updates.

I'm very happy to note that the workshop is being co-sponsored by GoDaddy and Nic.br. We've also started the process of transitioning workshop management functions to Viagénie, a well-known Canadian consulting and R&D firm that specializes in advanced computer networking technologies. Thank you to GoDaddy, Nic.br, and Viagénie for helping to make this workshop possible.

The agenda for the workshop is shaping up nicely. We're going to talk about the new RFC 7451, the "Extension Registry for the Extensible Provisioning Protocol". If you've developed an EPP extension for your registry this document describes how you can register your extension with IANA and let others know it exists. This will eventually help our industry consider ways of reducing duplication in EPP extensions, making it easier for registries and registrars to work together. That topic will conclude with demonstrations of extension requests being created and submitted to IANA.

Registration operations extend beyond EPP, and we're going to include two topics that describe new opportunities for innovation in the domain name ecosystem. The first topic, led by Richard Barnes of Mozilla, will focus on the Let's Encrypt initiative and the Automatic Certificate Management Environment (ACME) protocol. The second topic, led by Olafur Gudmundsson of CloudFlare and Jacques Latour of CIRA, will focus on a proposal for a new registry access model to update delegation information.

The workshop will conclude with a discussion of EPP extension opportunities. This will help us organize our thoughts in advance of the EPPEXT working group meeting that takes place on Friday 27 March.
