The IGF Secretariat is now accepting requests from Dynamic Coalitions (DCs) for individual meeting slots at the 14th IGF, until a deadline of Sunday 14 April 2019, 23:59 UTC.
All recognized IGF DCs are invited to submit their requests through the e-form.
DCs have traditionally used individual sessions to discuss related to their DC topic, and any work done by their coalition which they wish to highlight. In addition, this year DCs have the option to link their session to one of the three IGF 2019 programme themes, selectable in the submission form: (1) Data Governance; (2) Digital Inclusion; or (3) Security, Safety, Stability & Resilience.
The sessions themselves can be formatted as DCs see fit. The standard duration for a DC session has not yet been determined, as programme needs are still being assessed.
Requesters should kindly note the eligibility requirements posted on the IGF's website - namely that a DC provide the Secretariat with a yearly report or output as an indication of its activity. DCs which have produced an output or outcome document over the last year, as well as DCs which submitted outputs over the course of 2018 to participate in the main session, may be considered as having fulfilled this requirement. DCs new in 2019 must still submit a 'light' activities report to outline any discussions or work that has taken place since their formation. The links to outputs or activity reports should be provided in the appropriate field in the form.
Reminder: requests to the Secretariat for meeting slots constitute applications. Slots cannot be guaranteed.
