Dear all

See below a call-out for feedback on the inclusion of experimental 
sessions at the IGF meeting. IRPC co-hosted one of these lightening 
sessions to develop discussions we had at the two EuroDIG workshops 
<http://eurodigwiki.org/wiki/Category:Accessibility_2016> in Brussels 
last year; in Guadalajara participants responded to the question "What 
does internet governance have to do with refugees?". It is an exciting 
new direction for panel formats and inclusion at the IGF: good practice 
too keeping a session to a maximum of 20 minutes. Thanks to all those 
who took part on the day.

best wishes for 2017


Dear All,

*A Very Happy New Year from the IGF Secretariat!*

We're pleased to announce that there is now a *dedicated page* 
the IGF website for the *new, experimental session types - lightning and 
unconference - that took place at IGF 2016. *As new session organizers 
and presenters, we would encourage you all to take a look and please let 
the Secretariat know if all information is accurate.

In addition, you will notice on the page that we have started to 
*solicit feedback* 
the new session formats in order to better organize for next year, and 
to help gauge interest/demand for the sessions. If you have a moment, we 
would be grateful if you would consider filling out the *feedback form* 

*Your input would be incredibly valuable to us. *

We hope you stay in touch throughout the year, and as always, please 
feel free to come to us with any questions!

Best wishes,

IGF Secretariat
