The Seventh Annual meeting of the IGF will be held on 6-9 November 2012. The objective of the programme is to maximize the opportunity for open and inclusive dialogue and the exchange of ideas; to try and create feedback loops between the different types of sessions; to create opportunities to share good practices and experiences; to build capacities amongst all stakeholders; to listen, engage in dialogue and learn as well as to identify key themes that could, in the future, benefit from the multistakeholder perspective of the IGF.

This is a rolling document that will be updated as the planning progresses. An initial working draft of the programme for the IGF meeting in Baku was released after the open consultations held on 14th February 2012 and the MAG meeting held on 15-16 February 2012. The open consultations and MAG meeting held from 15-17 May have further informed the document.

The initial formulation of the IGF 2012 programme was based on the programmes of the previous meetings and especially the programme for IGF 2011 in Nairobi, Kenya. It introduces some innovations in light of the comments received from the IGF community. For the most part, the basic format and schedule of the previous meetings, with main sessions, workshops and other events, is maintained, though various changes have been suggested and are included for discussion. The open consultations, MAG meetings and input from the host country have resulted in the current proposal.
