Dear colleagues,

The Geneva Internet Platform is providing a just-in-time reporting
<https://dig.watch/events/wsis-forum-2017> from the WSIS Forum 2017, with
the support of ICANN and ISOC. Reports of the sessions are published within
two hours and daily summaries provide an overview of discussions. For those
who could not be physically present in Geneva or are overstretched with
parallel meetings, this can be a very useful resource.


All the best wishes,

Updates during WSIS Forum week
Dear Colleagues,

Today marks the start of the WSIS Forum, a week-long event that brings
together stakeholders to discuss sustainable development, the role of ICTs,
and related policy issues.

The Geneva Internet Platform (GIP) will provide just-in-time reporting from
most sessions, and will publish a thematic summary after the event. Session
reports will be available within a few hours of each session, at

We also invite you to join us for this afternoon's session on Data Needs
for Knowledge Societies: Defining Data Skills for International
organised by the GIP, the University of Geneva, and DiploFoundation​.
I take this opportunity to share a few innovative updates:

Last week, graduates of our Just-in-Time Course on Digital Commerce were in
for a surprise, as they were awarded *Blockchain Certificates* in addition
to traditional certificates. Read about it

In a bid to assist our community in keeping track of the many policy events
and their related deadlines, we have developed *DeadlineR*, a notification
system built into the *GIP Digital Watch* observatory. With DeadlineR, our
readers can receive reminders for deadlines to register for an event, to
submit workshop proposals, to submit papers, etc. Try out the pilot version
by visiting our Upcoming Events section

And also last week, our reporting team was in Tallinn, Estonia, for *EuroDIG
2017*. The team reported from sessions on digital rights, cybersecurity,
digital commerce and trade, cryptocurrency, and more. Read the reports

Best wishes,
Stephanie Borg Psaila
Editor, *GIP Digital Watch* observatory
