The IGF Secretariat is currently accepting requests to hold Open Forums at this year’s IGF in Geneva, Switzerland. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 21 June 2017, noon UTC. 

All Governments, treaty-based international organizations, and global organizations with international scope and presence, with operations across regions, dealing with Internet governance-related issues, are invited to submit requests for an Open Forum slot through this e-form. The inclusion of a background paper with the request is strongly encouraged.

Open Forums should focus on a Government or organization’s IG-pertinent activities during the past year and allow sufficient time for questions and discussions. The standard duration for the session is 60 minutes.

Governments and treaty-based international organizations will be given slots on a priority basis.
