The IGF Secretariat took requests to hold Open Forums at the 11th Annual IGF Meeting until the stated deadline of 20 June, midnight UTC-11. All Governments, treaty-based international organizations and organizations with international reach and/or dealing directly with Internet governance-related issues, were invited to submit requests for an Open Forum slot. The inclusion of a background paper with the request was strongly encouraged.
Open Forums should focus on an organization’s IG-pertinent activities during the past year and allow sufficient time for questions and discussions.
Governments and treaty-based international organizations will be given slots on a priority basis.
