Internet Governance Forum: workshop proposals online for viewing&merging

The Internet Governance Workshop proposals submitted within the 30 June deadline have now been posted for viewing. Save the following dates:

  • Deadline for submitting proposal (abstracts + initial list of organizers ): 30 June.
  • Completion of co-organizer and panellist arrangements and merge activities: July.
  • Notification of selection – 31 July 2007.

During July proponents of similar workshops will be encouraged to join forces and collaborate where it is feasible. Organizers of workshops are, therefore, expected to work with others who submit proposals on the same theme. A willingness to merge proposals is a requirement.
The Government of Brazil will host in Rio de Janeiro on 12 – 15 November 2007 the second Internet Governance Forum meeting. The IGF website – run by the IGF Secretariat – supports the United Nations Secretary-General in carrying out the mandate from the World Summit on the Information Society with regard to convening a new forum for multi-stakeholder policy dialogue – namely the Internet Governance Forum.
