Panel Description

The session will allow Forum participants to give feedback the programme for the Hyderabad meeting - what worked well and less well with the new meeting format. Forum participants have been more directly involved in the organization of the main sessions of the Hyderabad meeting than in previous IGFs, keeping in mind the evolutionary and experimental nature of the IGF has this worked well? How can it be improved? The session will also provide a first opportunity for an exchange of views on the review process to assess the “desirability of the continuation of the Forum” (as called for by the Tunis Agenda).
