 * Given that the SEEDIG 2017 meeting will be held back to back with the Regulatory Conference 2017 (organised on 24 – 26 May, by the Agency for Electronic Communications – also host of SEEDIG 2017), the second main session on 24 May and all sessions on 25 May will feature in the programme of both events (marked with * in the outline above). These sessions (to be organised in full compliance with SEEDIG’s Programme Guidelines and Session Principles) are intended to create synergies between the two events, and bring the two communities together in discussions on topics of common interest.
¹ The programme outline has been built taking into consideration proposals submitted in response to the call for issues, the discussions held at the January planning meetings, as well as comments submitted by the community on the draft programme. For each session/track, there is an indication of the ID number of the proposals that have been considered to pertain to the topic of the session. Proposals marked between brackets were seen as at least partially relevant for the respective session. You can find the list of proposals and their corresponding ID numbers in the full list of proposals.
² The headlines for the sessions are rather indicative at this stage. Further work is to be carried out by organising teams, who will take over the responsibility for building the sessions (deciding the title, agreeing on a more detailed focus of the session and elaborating a session description, choosing the format, moderators and key participants, as applicable). 
³ The speakers’ corner will  allow for short presentations on specific Internet-related topics that are not covered in the main sessions. The topics currently indicated in the programme are based on suggestions made at the planning meetings. Additional topics could also be accommodated: proponents of issues not included into the main programme, as well as other interested individuals can express interest to present their topic within the speaker’s corner. The length of individual presentations during the speakers’ corner will depend on the number of topics to be covered, and could vary between three and ten minutes.
If you are interested in having a slot at the speakers’ corner, please send us an email with your proposed topic by 20 February. Please send your proposal to icann-see@rnids.rs (mailing list) and/or see@intgovforum.org (e-mail address). Please note that, given the short time available for this format, we will only be able to accommodate a limited number of topics.
