Final registration list

Dear all,

I absolutely agree with what Ginger says.

Why remote participants are not suggested to register???

1. The IGF is being organized in a place, where many people are not able to
travel. (!)

In particular, those who live in Armenia, have Armenian origin, some
citizens of other countries (if necessary I will explain who in another
email), and all those who value highly their privacy  -  they all cannot
visit Azerbaijan.

I repeat, why remote participants are not counted on this event?

Again, I fully support Ginger's suggestion to enlarge the frames of the
event including remote participants.

Regards, Narine
