Yes, it may be difficult for workshop _support_, but less difficult  
for panelists. I suggest that we concentrate our resources and energy  
on ensuring the participation of good panelists, rather than spending  
our efforts on co-sponsors. If any co-sponsor is easy to get, they  
would however be most welcome.

Regarding panelists, even with the modified workshop proposal, I  
maintain that it would be better to ask people who may appear as  
representatives of main actors. This specially applies to governements.
Some names were suggested during our discussion on the workshop  

- CS: one of the IGC coordinators
- MAG/Secretariat: Nitin Desai / Markus Kummer (ask Desai first, of  
- Business: ICC rep.
- Gov: Janis Karklins
- IGO: ITU rep.
- (if felt needed, but I don't think it is) Tech: ICANN rep.

The format of the workshop should leave most of the time for open  
discussion with participants, i.e. 5 mn given to each panelist to  
open the discussion (assessment / improvement) and then open discussion.
