Dear prof. Shcherbovich and all

Since today is the last day to submit workshops for IGF and need to
have at least 3 confirmed speakers, I know many are running to try and
finalize their submissions or probably have finalized yet.

It could be that the professor received direct responses straight to his email.

If not, a good last minute way of communicating is via twitter. Try
tags like #IGF2017
Another way is finding out folks on databases such as www.icannwiki.org

These hints should also prove interesting for completing your speaker
list from now until December, dates of IGF2017.

The IGF values balance on stakeholder groups, gender and regional
representation so those who gets their proposal approved can also
strive to complete your list for balanced representation.

And last but not least don't forget the IGF Intersessional Activities
- you can participate in the IGF all year long and bring in
contributions that will be registered in the outcome documents so do
check them out.

> Freedom of expression restrictions, including website content blocking, became part of our life. Nowadays self-regulated internet transforms to overregulated: every country imposes its own rules on content blocking, enforcing users and website owners to comply with rules of more than 200 countries around the world.
> It is impossible to imagine modern internet without Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). In 2016 W3C extended list of HTTP status codes with “451 Unavailable For Legal Reasons”. Among all error codes addressing various technical failures, this is the only one specifically addressing legal issue. This illustrates significance of changes that happen to internet under the pressure of regulations.
> At this workshop, we will discuss how the regulations emerging all over the world shape internet of the future. In particular, how laws of different jurisdictions heap up towards website content blocking and challenges this impose to internet access, freedom of expression and internet fragmentation. We will discuss both technical aspects and legal perspectives of internet fragmentation and address the issue whether there is room for national laws harmonization.
