                     Better User Experience

• Easy user adoption. It is easy for users to adopt new collaboration tools and services by integrating Web-based
team collaboration services into everyday tools such as Microsoft Office, which includes e-mail, instant messaging,
and information rights management. The familiar Microsoft Office interface eliminates the need for training to
acquaint users with new software and helps users avoids the delays that erode productivity and slow document or
project delivery.
• Web browser access. The browser-based interface empowers users to create, access, and modify shared team
workspaces on demand and provides users with a single point of access to all of the rich information stored in team
• Adapt workspaces to meet team needs. Users can easily adapt team workspaces to fit the needs of specific
projects and communities by using built-in and extensible templates, Web Parts, views, and custom lists.

Basic Approach:                                                                             lengthened ims2002.org one year
Domain names are reserved as far in the future as practical, presently 20 years             9/5/2004
Domain names are registered for a minimum of 18 months following the conference date        added mttwireless.org and radiowireless.org
to allow the organizing committee to use the site for debriefing activities and attendees   9/15/2004
to use the site for informational purposes.                                                 added mtt-tpms.org
                                                                                            added rawcon.org
         Domain Names Actions

   Suggested actions:
1) extend renewal on ims2006 for an additional year
2) add rfic2011-2025
3) add ims2022-2025
4) allow rawcon.org to expire in 5 years without
