I am glad to announce the opening of registration for this year's
pre-IGF civil society meeting, to be held all day on 16 December.  This
is the meeting that Best Bits has hosted since 2012, but which we now
co-host with the Association for Progressive Communications (APC), Best
Bits, the Civil Society Internet Governance Caucus (IGC), the Just Net
Coalition (JNC), and ICANN’s Non-Commercial Stakeholders Group (NCSG).

The event web site where you can register is here:


The draft agenda posted on the site is open for your comment.  If you
made a suggestion for a topic to discuss, you will probably find it
listed on that agenda, and we will be reaching out to you soon if you
have volunteered to help speak or organize that session.

If you suggested a session topic and it isn't listed, you can find the
organizing committee's working document here, containing some notes
about the (relatively few) sessions that we didn't include:


You can add your comments to that page, and you can also use that
document to add your name as a volunteer if you would like to be part of
any of the listed sessions.

Currently we do not have any funding to support travel or accommodation
for people attending the meeting, but if this changes I will communicate
that to you all.  Meanwhile, please register for the meeting only on the
basis that you can cover your own travel and accommodation expenses.

Thanks and we look forward to seeing many of you at the meeting.  Please
let me know if you have any questions about it in the meantime.
