>>
>> We are now accepting workshop proposals for the 2012 IGF Annual Meeting
>> in Baku. The workshops will be held generally in parallel to the Main
>> Sessions. Organizers of workshops are asked to present their proposals
>> making use of the template posted below. Proposals should respect the
>> organizational principles and criteria for the selection of workshops. The
>> Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) will assess the proposals. The final
>> schedule will be determined in light of the number of proposals submitted.
>>
>> Organizational Principles
>>
>> • The guiding organizational principle for holding workshops is the
>> multi-stakeholder approach. Geographical diversity is an equally relevant
>> factor.
>>
>> • All proposals fulfilling the selection criteria and using the template
>> will be posted on the IGF Web site.
>>
>> • Proposals should preferably be submitted in English. 12 April 2012 is
>> set as the deadline for submitting proposals.
>>
>> • Interested parties are encouraged to submit their proposals as early as
>> possible, as the selection process will take place on an ongoing basis. An
>> early decision will facilitate the planning of workshops.
>>
>> • The rooms reserved for workshops and all equipment, including a screen
>> and a PC or laptop for projections and a projector (XGA/SVGA Data), will be
>> available free of charge. Details related to the logistics will be made
>> available in due course.
>>
>> • There will be no interpretation provided for workshops. If
>> interpretation is desired the workshop organizers are free to make their
>> own arrangements in coordination with the IGF Secretariat. The organizers
>> will be responsible for all associated costs.
>>
>> Content and format
>>
>> • They are two general workshop types:
>>
>> o Feeder workshops: will focus on the specific issues relevant to the
>> Baku meeting themes and will act as leaders to the relevant main sessions.
>> As was done in previous years in the relevant main sessions, the moderators
>> of these sessions will call on the feeder workshop rapporteurs to relate
>> the viewpoints expressed in the workshops. Each feeder workshop will be
>> asked to assign a rapporteur whose role will include attending the relevant
>> main session, giving a brief overview of the session's discussions and take
>> part in a one hour round table session that will immediately proceed the
>> main session on that topic. They should also be available to act as a
>> resource to the moderators of the relevant main session. To the extent
>> possible participants from the feeder workshops are also encouraged to
>> attend the main sessions related to the feeder workshops in order to
>> broaden the discussions on the sub-themes of the sessions.
>>
>> o Other workshops: Workshops on other topics of relevance to Internet
>> Governance. (More details will be available in the draft programme paper.)
>>
>> • Workshops dealing with topics that are addressed in the main meeting
>> will not be scheduled at the same time as the main meeting.
>>
>> • Workshops should explore a theme from different angles and different
>> stakeholders' perspectives. Pure advocacy workshops will not be considered.
>>
>> • All workshops will be Webcast and have realtime transcription.
>>
>> • Workshops should respect the general format of meetings and should be
>> structured to be interactive, allowing a large portion of their time for
>> open discussion and interaction with meeting attendees, such as a Q&A
>> session. They could include keynote presentations, moderated panels and
>> discussions both from the floor and from remote participants. Workshops
>> should be designed with the format that is most appropriate to the
>> particular topic under discussion.
>>
>> Selection criteria
>>
>> • Relevance to the main themes and sub-themes. Priority will be given to
>> proposals related to the main themes.
>>
>> • Demonstratively proposed or organized following the multi-stakeholder
>> principle (e.g. at least three relevant stakeholder groups being
>> represented in the organization of the workshop).
>>
>> • Capacity to improve understanding of the IGF themes and topics.
>>
>> • Proven experience, expertise and capacity to manage the staging of the
>> workshop, including the raising of funds necessary to do so.
>>
>> • Timeliness, completeness and adherence to deadlines.
>>
>> • The provision of background papers.
>>
>> • Developing country support.
>>
>> • Gender balance.
>>
>> • Balance of speakers to participant discussion in the design of the
>> workshop; that is, the degree of interaction planned.
>>
>> • Youth participation.
>>
>> • Suitability for remote participation, for example linkages to a hub
>> event.
>>
>> • A name of a remote moderator is also required for each workshop.
>>
>> Template for submitting proposals
>>
>> An online form will be made available shortly for the submission of
>> workshop proposals containing the following questions:
>>
>> Question 1: Title of proposed workshop.
