IGF 2021 Workshop Selection Results

Voiced by Amazon Polly

The following is the result of the workshop evaluation and selection process conducted by the IGF Multistakeholder Advisory Group (MAG) for the 2021 IGF process and its 16th annual meeting.

In light of community feedback requesting a more substantively focused programme, in addition to individual workshop proposal scores, the MAG’s selection process this year looked at proposals’ cohesion with one another under each of the issue areas for 2021. With a view to creating session issue area tracks, and reducing overall redundancy, the number of selected workshops was limited per the issue area.

The selected 83 workshops of evaluated 203 are listed below. All proposers – those approved, approved conditionally, and not approved – will receive individual emails on their status, as well as further instructions if applicable.
