Remote Participation

Components of Remote Participation


A key feature of remote participation at the WSIS Forum 2013 will be the webcast. WSIS Stakeholders will be able to follow all sessions via the audio/video webcast.

Web Conferencing (Adobe Connect)

If you would like to participate actively in this conference as a remote participant, you can do so via the Adobe Connect (virtual) conference rooms. This will allow you to follow the video feed of the conference room, hear what is being discussed (English channel), see presentations and documents, and put questions to panelists via chat. Each session will have 10-15 minutes for questions from remote delegates.

To enter a virtual conference room, use the link below to view the registration and room selection form. To find out which room to enter, simply refer to the WSIS Forum Agenda, note the physical Conference Room where this session will take place, and enter the corresponding Adobe Connect Room, a few minutes before your session, is due to start.

Remote Participation Information

The WSIS Forum has a multi-stakeholder character. The WSIS Stakeholders include governments, civil society, private sector and international organizations from all parts of the world. Today, information and communication technologies (ICTs) provide the opportunity for representation and inclusion of all stakeholders in the WSIS Forum by way of remote participation. In order to ensure participation and inclusion of all WSIS Stakeholders, remote participation has been designed as an integral feature of the WSIS Forum 2013.

Building on the success of remote participation facilities initiated at WSIS Forum 2012, the organizers are working towards integrating the most user friendly and widely used tools for encouraging remote participation at WSIS Forum 2013. These easy to participate tools will enable two way communication, allowing the WSIS Stakeholders to participate in the WSIS Forum at their own convenience and at the same time disseminate information about the different sessions and happenings at the Forum.
