WSIS Forum 2012

The WSIS Forum 2012 will be held from 14th to 18th May 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland, and will provide structured opportunities to network, learn and to participate in multi-stakeholder discussions and consultations on WSIS implementation.

The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) is a unique two-phase United Nations (UN) summit, initiated to create an evolving multi- stakeholder platform aimed at addressing issues raised by information and communication technologies (ICTs) through a structured and inclusive approach at the national, regional and international levels.

The goal of WSIS is to achieve a common vision, desire and commitment to build a people-centric, inclusive and development-oriented Information Society where everyone can create, access, utilize and share information.  

The first phase of the WSIS took place in Geneva in 2003 and the second phase took place in Tunis in 2005. Since then, a cluster of WSIS-related events have been held on an annual basis; in 2009, these events were rebranded as the WSIS Forum.  

The WSIS Forum 2012 will be held from 14th to 18th May 2012 in Geneva, Switzerland, and will provide structured opportunities to network, learn and to participate in multi-stakeholder discussions and consultations on WSIS implementation.  

This event builds upon the tradition of annual WSIS May meetings, and its new format is the result of open consultations with all WSIS Stakeholders.   

The 2012 WSIS Forum will be hosted by ITU and will take place at the Conference Centre of the International Labour Organization (ILO). Remote participation will be an integral component of the Forum. Details on both onsite and remote participation will be available soon. Onsite participants can network with each other using the imeetyouatWSISForum social networking platform.
