This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Internet Governance Forum (IGF), and the 10th IGF meeting is just around the corner. The meeting, that takes place in João Pessoa, Brazil on 10-13 November, comes at an interesting time as work is underway on reviewing the implementation of the WSIS outcomes (WSIS+10), and before the year ends, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is set to decide on the renewal of the IGF mandate, as well as the WSIS+10 review and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

The meeting is an excellent opportunity for the global multistakeholder community to demonstrate support for the IGF and emphasize the need for renewing its mandate beyond 2015. ICANN has consistently been a strong supporter of the IGF since its inception, as it views it as an effective vehicle for stimulating constructive debate around broad range of Internet governance issues.

As in previous years, a number of ICANN Board Directors, community members and staff are participating in IGF 2015. ICANN is organizing a session on Day 0 (9-Nov) on the IANA Stewardship transition and ICANN accountability, and an Open Forum on Day 2 (11-Nov). The following is a short description of these two sessions and a list of workshops organized by ICANN community members.

ICANN Accountability and Global Governance Discourse

When: 9 November 2015, 10:30 – 12:00

This panel discussion informs attendees of the latest developments in the IANA Stewardship transition and ICANN accountability processes and discusses influences on global governance discourse. Members of the various working groups and community leaders are taking part in this panel.

ICANN Open Forum

When: 11 November 2015, 09:00 – 10:00

The ICANN Open Forum aims to update participants on progress ICANN has made in key areas of its work since last year’s IGF in Istanbul. This is an interactive session where IGF participants get the opportunity to engage in an open dialogue with ICANN’s leadership and exchange views on various issues.
