Is any of you attending WSIS Forum ?

There is a panel organized by ICANN's Cross Community WG on Internet Governance to discuss about the IANA Stewardship transition.
It would be good to have someone from the CRISP Team to speak about the stewardship transition process from the numbers community perspective.

I won't be there and I wonder if there is anyone from the CRISP Team who will be at the WSIS Forum and willing to be on the panel.

Would you be able to get back to the list before Monday 11 May if you will be able to participate in the panel?

Overview of the panel is as below:

ICANN CCWG-IG is putting up a panel at WSIS Forum at 16:45 on Thursday 28 May. The transition of Stewardship of the IANA Contract from the US to the Global Community is, arguably, this year's most significant change for the Internet. This session (which will not focus on the substance of the debate or on any transition proposal) will provide behind the scene insights from participants in the IANA Stewardship Transition; including:

 - how the bottom-up multistakeholder model has been used to make tough operational decisions that will affect the whole Internet
 - how initial positions held by stakeholders were examined - how these positions evolved in the course of discussions, both on-line and in face to face meetings
 - the lessons to be learnt for other Internet Governance issues from the experience of participants in this process?

The session will include personal insights from community members who started out with very diverse, conflicting views which reflected the views of their Community, finally finding consensus in building together the best solution for the operational stability and continuity of the Internet.
This session will seek to demonstrate the maturity of the multistakeholder model of governance; relevant - not least - in the forthcoming UNGA discussion on the WSIS+10 Review.
Participants (in a roundtable format) will be drawn from across the Community including representatives from ISOC, the IETF and the RIRs.The Cross Community Working Group on Internet Governance is a formal body within the ICANN Community Structure drawing membership from nearly all of the different Constituency bodies.
