Telecommunication Development Conference may set up committees to consider
matters referred to the conference.
The High-Level Segment at the World Telecommunication Development Conference (WTDC-17), to be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 9 to 20 October 2017 will provide a special platform for high-ranking officials from ITU Member States, for the most part ministers or deputy ministers, to express their views on emerging trends and on matters of strategic importance to the development of the telecommunication and information and communication technology sector.
General policy statements will be of great value to WTDC-17, being held under the theme “ICT for Sustainable Development Goals” (ICT④SDGs). The contribution of information and communication technologies (ICTs) as a cross-cutting sector is crucial for accelerating efforts to attain these goals through, for example, e-health, e-education, e‑agriculture, e-commerce and e-government.
At its 2016 session, the ITU Council welcomed this theme, noting how it would send a message to the outside world about ITU’s alignment to the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda agreed by heads of State and Government at the United Nations General Assembly.
Four sessions are planned as follows for the High-Level Segment:
Monday, 9 October: 1430h-1600h and 1615h-1730h
Tuesday, 10 October: 1115h-1230h and 1430h-1600h
Because of time constraints, each speaker will be limited to three (3) minutes. However, the full text of the statement will be posted on the conference website.
To request for a slot to deliver a policy statement, please use the following link: www.itu.int/go/HLS17 . Guidelines regarding general policy statements are given below.

submit the official photograph of your High-LeveL Segment speaker to email@example.com by 9 September (at the very latest). The photo must be in high-resolution of at least 300 dots per inch (dpi) at the size 15 x 10 cm (2000 x1350 pixels) in “.jpg” format. Simply put, all images should be one-megabyte heavy or above . Photographs that do not meet these specifications are not technically suitable for projection on a large screen or for print media.
We look forward to welcoming you to the High-Level Segment.
Documents for the conference
The following preparatory documents will be published:
In compliance with Council Resolution 1141 and PP-14 Resolution 154, work
of WTDC-17 will be conducted in as a paperless manner as possible. Each
participant will be encouraged to upload a sync application that will
automatically synchronize with the ITU FTP document server to allow
participants to have at hand at any time all published documents of the
conference in any of the six official ITU languages that are available. In
addition, a local document server will be set up at the venue to allow for
immediate access to all published documents of the conference in any of the
six official ITU languages that are available.
Documents will be available on the WTDC-17 website at
Participants are therefore requested to bring their laptops. For those with
no laptop, a cybercafé will be available to download and print
documents, as required, on a self-service basis.
To allow for thorough consideration by delegations,
contributions should be submitted preferably two months before the
opening of WTDC-17 (i.e. by Tuesday 8 August 2017).
In any event and in accordance with Resolution 1 on the Rules of Procedure
of the Telecommunication Development Sector (Rev. Dubai, 2014),
contributions should be submitted
not later than 30 calendar days (i.e. by Saturday 9 September 2017)
in order to guarantee their timely translation. In line
with this Resolution and Resolution 165 (Guadalajara, 2010), the firm
submission deadline for all contributions to WTDC-17 shall be no later than 14 calendar days before the opening of the conference
(i.e. by Monday 25 September 2017 at 2359 hours Geneva time)
Contributions should be submitted by electronic means using the system
indicated below. Should you require any clarification or guidance, please
contact the WTDC-17 secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Member States and Sector Members are urged to give careful attention to the
initial preparation of contributions so as to avoid revisions to documents.
Processing of contributions prior to the Conference
In order to consolidate the various contributions submitted in a way that
lends itself to the elaboration of a solid, cohesive package consisting of
inter-related and mutually reinforcing components, a web-based tool known
as Conference Proposals Interface (CPI) is being made available to members
and can be accessed at the following link:
A User Guide along with Guidelines for the preparation of proposals are
also available at this link.
In addition to providing a common approach to submitting contributions, CPI
will also provide a fast-track to the processing of the input documents by
reducing the reformatting of the contributions.
Contributions not submitted through CPI may result in delays in their
processing and posting.
Members who have submitted proposals to other major ITU events, such as the
ITU Plenipotentiary Conference 2014 (PP-14), the World Radiocommunication
Conference 2015 (WRC-15), or the World Telecommunication Standardization
Assembly 2016 (WTSA-16), are already familiar with CPI. For any
queries regarding CPI, please contact the WTDC-17 secretariat at:
In accordance with No. 42 of the General Rules of Conferences, Assemblies
and Meetings of the Union, contributions containing more than one proposal
should be submitted with a number to identify each proposal along with the
topic of the proposal. The secretariat will annotate each proposal with
index numbers composed as follows:
where ABC is the symbol of the country that is the author of the proposal,
25 is the number of the document in which the proposal will be published
and 3 is the serial number of the proposal within that document. The
three-letter code and document number will be included by the secretariat.
However, the numbering of each proposal will be assigned by the online
system when submitting each proposal.
On the basis of the contributions received by the deadline, BDT will
allocate the documents based on the topics identified by the submitting
administration in order to facilitate discussion at WTDC-17.
Processing of contributions during the Conference
Owing to the limited duration of the conference, substantive debate should
take precedence over the systematic presentation of individual proposals.
For ease of referencing during the discussions, the secretariat will
prepare a temporary document listing all the contributions with
cross-references to the different items on the agenda. Member States are
strongly encouraged not to submit new contributions during the conference.
Length limit for the submission of contributions
In the spirit of Resolution 154 (Rev. Busan, 2014), it is encouraged to
limit the length of contributions. In this regard, a contribution should
not exceed five (5) pages, and should be submitted to the Director of the
Telecommunication Development Bureau.
In the case of a more detailed contribution that significantly exceeds the
length limit, an executive summary should be submitted. Only the executive
summary will be translated if submitted within the time limit. The detailed
version of the contribution will only be available in the original
ITU information/document access policy
In line with the ITU information/document access policy approved by Council
2016, information/documents will be made publicly accessible, unless the
submitter of the document advises the ITU secretariat otherwise. This new
policy entered into force on a provisional basis on 1 January 2017 pending
final approval by the Plenipotentiary Conference in 2018.
The new policy is available at the following link
and underlines that ITU is committed to improving public access to
information, while also protecting certain types of information where
disclosure might cause potential harm to a legitimate private or public
Submitters of information to ITU conferences, assemblies and meetings have
the responsibility to notify the ITU secretariat if a document, or portion
thereof, contains information falling into any of the categories listed in
the policy or is otherwise sensitive. In those cases, submitters are
encouraged to provide a redacted version for public access whenever
Restricted information shall remain restricted until it no longer meets the
criteria listed in the policy, or until the submitter notifies ITU that it
may be made publicly available.
To allow for thorough consideration by delegations,
contributions should be submitted preferably two months before the opening of WTDC-17 (i.e. by Tuesday 8 August 2017).
In any event and in accordance with Resolution 1 on the Rules of Procedure of the Telecommunication Development Sector (Rev. Dubai, 2014), contributions should be submitted
not later than 30 calendar days (i.e. by Saturday 9 September 2017) in order to guarantee their timely translation.
In line with this Resolution and Resolution 165 (Guadalajara, 2010), the firm submission deadline for all contributions to WTDC-17 shall be no later than
14 calendar days before the opening of the conference (i.e. by Monday 25 September 2017 at 2359 hours Geneva time).
Contributions should be submitted by electronic means using the Conference Proposals Interface (CPI).

Wireless LAN connectivity.
Notes on Wireless LAN connectivity
To make the most efficient use of network resources, we strongly
recommend the following:
Wireless LAN configuration parameters
Most wireless cards are able to search for the radio channel
automatically. If your card does not support this function, try
channels 36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, or 64 for 5 GHz band and
channels 1, 6 or 11 for 2.4 GHz band. You may have to change to
another channel if you move to another part of the building.
Set operation mode to "Infrastructure" (not Ad-Hoc or
peer-to-peer). The Ad-Hoc mode creates a lot of confusion not only
for you, but also for other participants.
Notes on using wireless connections:
Wireless network connections are good for web browsing, but fair
for FTP downloads.
Wireless cards can drain considerable power from your laptop - so
recharge your laptop frequently.
USEFUL REMINDERS FOR LAPTOPS
Enable DHCP so that your laptop will obtain the IP address and
other network parameters automatically.
Please be aware that delegate network communication can be
intercepted, end-to-end encryption is recommended for
If you are concerned about computer security, please use personal
Firewall software configurations may prevent access to local
resources (e.g. printers).
All wireless users must have a good anti-virus program that has an
up-to-date virus database. Viruses can easily spread in the
Set up your outgoing (SMTP) server to smtp.itu.int
The "Tools", "Internet Options", "Connection", "LAN settings"
should be set to "automatically detect settings".
Disable any SOCKS configurations.
Please note that the installation and use of non-ITU wireless access points
without prior authorization from the ITU/IS Department is prohibited.
The ITU Telecommunication Development Sector (ITU-D) marks its 25th Anniversary this year. ITU-D was established in 1992 by the Additional Plenipotentiary Conference that was held in Geneva.
