I support an informational update approach. That does not require a "he says/she says", but a factual briefing approach.

It could even rely on a staff developed factual update with some respondents, both on site and remote. It is too bad that Kurt is not available, but he might be willing to support the preparation of a factual update as past chair, and then be online?

I don't have funding, either to attend but support an informational briefing at the WSIS Forum.  And in any case, I am not the expert from the business user side on this topic.

BUT, there is also remote participation for possible presenter(s) and as we saw at previous WSIS Forum, when a speaker was not able to travel, they provided PP and script, and that was presented.

As long as we have agreement that this is a briefing, not a debate, or redebate, we should be then able to focus on the factual update regarding work to date, work in future.

Dear Farzaneh,

This was discussed in the last call and it was found to be a good idea. Kurt expressed interest and this is not designed to be a debate but rather a summary of the group's work. WSIS audience needs a basic introduction as they are not knowledgeable about the topic.
Kindest regards,

Thanks Olivier.

I don't quite remember when we agreed on submitting a workshop about EPDP's work to be held at WSIS.  I am worried that the balance of views and representation on this panel would be hard to preserve especially because we don't have funding to send members.

Hi Everyone:

I hope you all had a safe, uneventful trip back home.

I have been contacted by Olivier MJ Crépin-Leblond and Nigel Hickson about the upcoming WSIS meeting in Geneva and, in particular, that there will be a session concerning GDPR & ICANN’s work on it.

Olivier arranged for such a session with the goal that a couple or few members of the EPDP team could attend and present. The session is on Thursday, 4 April. I have included information regarding the session below. There is no travel support available for this. I have looked into going but the Magic Eight-ball says “doubtful” at this point.

If anyone on the team can attend, please let me know at your earliest convenience - we are looking for 2-3 people.

Thanks for considering this and best regards,



The WSIS Forum is a UN organised annual event hosted by ITU to discuss developments since WSIS in 2003/5. Overall information is at https://www.itu.int/net4/wsis/forum/2019/<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.itu.int%2Fnet4%2Fwsis%2Fforum%2F2019%2F&data=02%7C01%7C%7C1f47d95446404cb841f208d6accdc1b6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636886397045076050&sdata=Ste%2FpccaZ3KcFOVbCvMdPr1HAdOSKjaBhiA%2FUOJx3LM%3D&reserved=0>

The Agenda for the Forum in April is at https://www.itu.int/en/itu-wsis/Documents/Agenda2019/WF19_DraftAgenda.pdf?cb=5URGIG<https://nam04.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.itu.int%2Fen%2Fitu-wsis%2FDocuments%2FAgenda2019%2FWF19_DraftAgenda.pdf%3Fcb%3D5URGIG&data=02%7C01%7C%7C1f47d95446404cb841f208d6accdc1b6%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C636886397045086055&sdata=7THSIcRpPwf7OtjbqocDELwjyLwEC29aUw424Pt%2BEHs%3D&reserved=0>

The CCWG IG at ICANN applied for and was granted the following:

Thematic workshop:  ICANN, the GDPR and WHOIS

Thursday, 16.30 – 18.15

This Session (organised with our Cross Community Working Group (CCWG) on Internet Governance) will explore the current developments within ICANN since the coming into force of the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) in May 2018. It will also provide an update on the current Policy Development process (EPDP) to advise on permanent changes to the way in which registrant data is captured and displayed on the “WHOIS”.

The Workshop will be comprised of 3-5 panellists and thus having at least two members of the EPDP would be really constructive.
