[ccwg-internet-governance] Agenda for the Public Session on IG?

As the event is less than a week away, we need to get clear on what we’re doing inter alia so Nigel can finalize the place holder text at http://buenosaires53.icann.org/en/schedule/mon-ig <http://buenosaires53.icann.org/en/schedule/mon-ig>.

If I have understood correctly, there have been two approaches floated.  The first, which could be called the path of least resistance model, is to do pretty much what we’ve done in the past.  As discussed on the last call, this would be to have a two part agenda. First part is WSIS+10 and I moderate. Second part is tour d’horizon of other developments, Peter moderating, referencing Nigel’s background paper. Topics to be touched upon could include

*Our WSIS Forum session on IANA process
*ITU Council and IPP WG
*IGF Best Practice Forum on Multistakeholder Practice
*If time allows, misc other, eg. GCIG, UNESCO, GCCS, GIPO, GFCE, WEF, etc.

And the F2F later in the week would discuss whether and if yes what to do about a community input into the WSIS+10 review, i.e. evolving the text we used for the NM meeting.

The second approach would be to dispense with the  tour d’horizon and instead begin to discuss the idea of a community input in the public session:

While we don’t have such a draft document, I suppose we could link our 2014 NM input off the site and direct folks to use that as a starting point for discussion.  

Suggest we decide so Nigel can update the session description accordingly.  Per previous, I’m happy with whatever gets some consensus.

And for conversation starters, we’d discussed Wolfgang, Marilia, Janis, Marilyn, and Megan and another person from the global South.  I know OCL sent out some invites, not sure whether all have responded. But Nigel should list the heads that will be talking on the site as well.
