[alac] ITU workshop on Internet Governance

The ITU is organizing a workshop on Internet Governance in late February, in Geneva:


It is a closed workshop in which the ITU will discuss its position in respect to the outcome of WSIS and to the future UN-organized working group on the matter.

However, the organizers have decided to invite selected experts from users and civil society groups - and I have just received a notice of an incoming invitation to my person.

I will possibly accept the invitation, as we have to use any possible chance to ensure that user participation will remain on the map of any future Internet governance mechanism, and this is going to be a good one to do so.

I don't know yet whether I would be supposed to give a presentation, to participate in a panel, or what else. Anyway, according to what we think, I could also use this chance to advertise ourselves and our work.

Since participation will be closed, in case anyone is interested, the only possible way for participation by other ALAC members would be getting an invitation through other channels, possibly an ITU member (either government or corporate).
