Olivier, Colleagues,apologies to have to drop off early. However, I want to be sure that item 2 /which I was proposing as an update about the IGF  and what is being addressed by the MAG was not limited to strengthening the IGF, although should be part of the discussion. that would be a short update -- 10 min.
Item 1 should also be an update, and I suggest, strongly, that it be provided the principles. I noted in the chat that it is strange to see ICANN suggesting that as an international organization, that "they" are appointing an "ambassador", a term that is a governmental term. However, for an update, I would expect factual updates from ICANN, including what the status of their projects at Harvard, Berkman Center -- we had a less than responsive report on that at the last ICANN meeting, regretfully.  While ICANN is doing a lot of initiating of events, and projects, the community deserves a factual update. I recall that back in London and LA, we were told that there would be outputs from these projects, and I am sure that we all would look forward to such reports. They too can be brief, but supported by written materials - Written updates and no more than 15 minutes.
Items 3 and 4 do deserve a fulsome discussion with the community. Particularly 4, which is the reason that this CCWG was initially created...  either focus on only 4, and use examples of the various IG meetings and activities and discuss scenarios for what and how ICANN can engage with community first, or how ICANN may improve its engagement... While I would welcome a discussion re 3, it may not be as ripe as item 4.

    Dear all,


    The majority of today's conference call was spent discussing the
    arrangements for the Internet Governance Public Session at the
    forthcoming Singapore ICANN 53 meeting.


    Staff are following-up regarding room bookings/logistics. Consensus
    needs to be found on the topics and how they are to be addressed.


    The following topics were suggested:


    1. NetMundial Initiative // update

    This could be an update on NetMundial. Bearing in mind the first
    meeting of the NMI Coordination Group will take place after ICANN
    Singapore, doubt was cast on whether this was going to be helpful.

    The "debate" initially suggested gained little traction on the call.


    2. Strengthening the IGF

    A discussion around the topic - inviting Janis Karklins &
    Chengetai Masango.


    3. Cybersecurity

    This is a hot topic on the Internet - possibly lead by volunteers
    from SSAC.


    4. Coordinating between ICANN the Corporation & ICANN the

    Coming up with a Framework in which ICANN engages the community -
    this is an ICANN's wide issue



    Most participants on the call preferred using the public session as
    an opportunity for discussion and collecting input from everyone in
    the room rather than as a way to update the community on topics of
    Internet Governance. The time should not be used for progress


    4 topics are too many topics for the 60-75-90 minutes (TBD) which
    we'll have so we need to reduce the number of topics to probably 2,
    with one main topic and a second topic.


    Please indicate your preferences and why?


    Kindest regards,
