Leaders of the organizations responsible for coordination of 
the Internet technical infrastructure (loosely referred to as "I* 
leaders") met on 25 April in São Paulo, Brazil following the NETmundial 
meeting. During the 1-day I* leaders meeting, the group considered a 
range of issues where dialogue among Internet technical organisations is 

In particular, the group highlighted that the NETmundial meeting 
has energised the multistakeholder discussions and model in a 
positive fashion. The leaders highlighted the importance of open, 
collaborative, bottom-up processes across meetings and organisations 
dealing with the Internet.

During the meeting, the group reflected on a number of other topics as well:

I. Transition of NTIA's Stewardship of the IANA Functions 
<http://www.icann.org/en/about/agreements/iana/transition>  and review 
of ICANN accountability processes.

II. The announcement made by ICANN CEO of the launch of a process to 
review and improve ICANN's own oversight/accountability mechanism and 
how it is complementary to the IANA function's stewardship evolution 

III. Upcoming Internet Governance meetings including the Internet 
Governance Forum <http://www.intgovforum.org> and the 
ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 

IV. Coordination of experiences, plans and resources to further 
deploy DNSSEC via the ccTLD community.

V. Identification of issues and players to further enable adoption 
of Internationalised Domain Names (IDNs) toward accelerating their 
adoption in communities that don't use the Latin Character sets.

The group bade farewell to Raúl Echeberría, CEO of LACNIC and 
Leslie Daigle, Chief Internet Technology Officer of the Internet Society.
