Dear Members,

Apologies for cross posting.

All stakeholders are invited to submit proposals to hold workshops at the
forthcoming IGF, which will be held in Geneva, Switzerland, on 18-21
December 2017.

The proposed overarching theme for this year's IGF is 'Shape Your Digital
Future!', emphasizing both the IGF's participatory mechanisms and a
forward-looking approach to the Internet governance discussion. The
sub-themes for the meeting will be determined in part by the workshop
proposals received, with proposers writing in their own tags.Tags on new
and emerging issues, such as 'Artificial Intelligence', 'Work in the
Digital Age', 'Law Enforcement & Encryption', etc., are particularly
welcome. Pre-existing tags to choose from include but are not limited to,
Internet of Things; Internet Economy; Policies Enabling Access;
Cybersecurity; Human Rights Online; Gender Issues; and Digital Literacy;
among many others.

All relevant information including the workshop proposal template [this is
for proposers' reference until the submission e-form is available],
guidelines and tips for submitting proposals, can be found below. The
deadline for submission is Wednesday, 3 May 2017 23:59 UTC-11.

*First-time workshop proposers are encouraged to read through this brief
manual for FAQs, tips and links to all IGF workshop resources.

*All workshop proposers and future workshop speakers should consider
joining the 'IGF 2017 Speaker-Session Collaboration Space', a forum for
exchanging ideas and seeking out new collaborators.
