Dear IRPC members

For those who were in Guadalajara, in meatspace or online, would be 
great to hear thoughts and impressions for the annual stocktaking, 
particularly any feedback on the new session types.

On the latter, as a lightening session co-organizer, I for one would 
like to support the continuation of these innovative, and spontaneous 
formats during the conference. They take the cue from best practice in 
the EuroDIG meetings and have gone some way in adapting these shorter 
sessions for the IGF setting.


Dear All,

· The Secretariat would like to kindly remind all IGF stakeholders that 
they are invited to contribute to the *IGF's annual stocktaking,* 
submitting inputs on the following questions:

A) Taking Stock of 2016 programming, preparatory process, community 
intersessional activities and the 11th annual IGF: What worked well? 
What worked not so well?

B) Suggestions for improvements in 2017? (programming, preparatory 
processes, community intersessional activities and improvements for 12th 
annual meeting)

All inputs should be sent to *takingstock at intgovforum.org* by *22 
January 2017. *Please limit your submissions to no more than 4 pages 
single-spaced in MS Word, PDF or applicable format. Submissions will be 
uploaded to the IGF website.

· In addition, all are invited to give their feedback on the *new 
session types - lightning or unconference -* 
for the first time at the 11th IGF.

If you participated in one of these new sessions (or are simply 
interested in new session formats!), please let the Secretariat know 
what you thought in the feedback form here: 

The Secretariat will produce a synthesis paper of all contributions 
received by the deadline, which will serve as an input to the 1st 
face-to-face Open Consultations and MAG Meeting of the 2017 IGF 
preparatory process.

Please do pass this on to your colleagues and fellow IGF participants!

With warm wishes for the new year,
IGF Secretariat Team
