Dear CCWG IG participants,

FYI the sub-group to prepare a WSIS Forum proposal has exchanged emails
and also held a conference call. We ended up settling for proposing a
workshop about the ICANN Accountability process. Since this requires the
participation of CCWG Accountability participants and since we have so
little time (less than 3 days) to file the proposal, please be so kind
to find my email to the CCWG Accountability co-Chairs attached below for
your information.
At this stage if there is any concerns to our CCWG IG on proposing this
workshop, please voice them now. This topic will also be the subject of
our next call, likely to take place at the end of this week (details to
be sent by Desiree shortly, based on your Doodle responses)

Warmest regards,

Subject: 	URGENT: WSIS Forum workshop proposal

Dear Mathieu, Thomas and Leon,

last year, the CCWG on Internet Governance organised a workshop at the
WSIS Forum ( http://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2015/ ) entitled "IANA
Stewardship Transition - A Live Example of a Multi-Stakeholder Process"
(see proposal on:
https://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2015/Agenda/Session/269 )

The workshop was very successful, with a full house in attendance, and
it really raised the profile of ICANN's multistakeholder model.

The closing of the application period for workshops the WSIS Forum 2016
is this Saturday 30 January 2016 and the CCWG on Internet Governance is
now considering proposing a similarly-structure workshop that would
focus on the process used to build a proposal by the CCWG
Accountability. We believe it could be a great opportunity to showcase
two main assets:
- a unique operational multistakeholder model in action, addressing a
complex issue and building a robust plan to improve ICANN
Accountability, including its link feeding into the IANA Stewardship
Transition proposal
- the actual proposal itself, demonstrating the main concepts the CCWG
Accountability have proposed in their Final Report.

Bearing in mind the WSIS Forum session is 90 minutes, the aim is not to
go into every detail of the proposal, but rather to showcase main lines
and concepts, and we would require your participation in this, as well a
potentially the participation of CCWG Accountability participants who
could be ready to share their personal experience on the challenges and
successes they encountered throughout the course of their involvement.

As time is of the essence, we would appreciate knowing at your earliest
convenience if this type of showcasing the work of the CCWG
Accountability would be agreeable to you and to CCWG Accountability
members, and whether we could count on your participation. We think the
CCWG Acccountability achievements are quite unique and deserve to be shared.
Again, we are not looking at a focus on details or implementation - our
proposed session at WSIS Forum would be informational on the concepts,
not the details that might still be, today, the source of argument. 90
minutes only gives the ability to give a helicopter view.
The proposed structure of the session would likely be 90 minutes divided
evenly between:
- Process used to reach Final Proposal stage
- Summary of Proposal
- Discussion / Q&A with room participants

I look forward to your kind and prompt reply.

Kindest regards,

Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond
Co-Chair - CCWG Internet Governance
