There have been many pressures building on the Domain Name System,
including rapid growth of .com, trademark disputes, and increasing amounts
of litigation. Join DC-ISOC to hear from Industry leaders how domain names
are being handled and what steps are being taken to possibly expand the
domain name space.

  - Network Solution's initiatives to ensure that Internic operations keep
pace with the rapidly evolving Internet

serves as chairman of the Internet International Ad Hoc Committee (IAHC)
which is charged with looking at the complex issues surrounding the current
domain name and registry situation, including trademark and infringement,
economics and administration of registry operations, dispute policies, fees
and international Top Level Domain (iTLDs).

The meeting will be held on Tuesday, December 3, 1996, at the Marriott
Hotel in Tysons Corner from 7-9 p.m. Please arrive prior to the meeting
