This is an update on the status of the IGC-sponsored workshops for the
2011 meeting of the IGF.

1.  Reflection on the Indian proposal towards an IGF 2.0 (coordinators
Jeremy Malcolm and MarĂ­lia Maciel). Workshop details:
http://mini.me.my/10.  Approved, and the competing proposals from
ICC/BASIS and ISOC are now to be merged separately.  Progress is good,
but we are still waiting to nail down speakers from the Indian and/or
Brazilian governments.

2. Mapping Internet Governance (coordinator Norbert Bollow).  Workshop
details: http://mini.me.my/16.  Formerly "Pending", now "Approved". 
Norbert has set up a website and mailing list for development of a draft
map to be discussed at this workshop, and Consumers International has
provided some funding support.  All systems go!  See http://idgovmap.org/.

3. A possible framework for global Net Neutrality (coordinator Parminder
Jeet Singh). Workshop details: http://mini.me.my/19.  Not approved and
currently in "Pending" state.  The Secretariat stated that the grounds
for not approving were lack of stakeholder balance (unfortunate that
this couldn't have been related at an earlier stage!).  This is being
addressed and the workshop awaits reconsideration.

Anyone who wishes to help with any of the above IGC-sponsored workshops,
please make contact with the respective workshop coordinators.  Thanks!
