Subject: [IGFmaglist] Proposal for Working Group on Innovative Session Formats

Dear MAG members,
I submit the following proposal for your consideration.
Working Group on Innovative Session Formats
With the purpose to attract young people, and algo have spaces where people can share their ideas without occupying a complete session slot when it is not really needed, we should consider evaluating innovative session formats.
Also, some of the formats could give more space for participants who other way could not be able to present their ideas and projects.
2 new formats were proposed but we may consider others:

  1.  Lightning Talks
A lightning talk is a very short presentation lasting only a few minutes. Several lightning talks will usually be delivered by different speakers in a single session.
The proposal is to have them during and in the same spaces as lunch and coffee breaks. That way we give the presenters (mostly young people if defined) to have a place and an audience in order to share their ideas and projects.
For example: 10 minutes sessions / 10 slides presentations
  2.  Barcamp Sessions
We should reserve a special room for a day (or more maybe) for this kind of unconference sessions where anyone can schedule his/her own session by writing on a whiteboard or putting a Post-It note on a 'grid' of sessions during the morning.
For example: The whiteboard opens at 8.30AM with 30 minutes slots. The sessions are from 10AM until 1PM and from 3PM until 6PM. People arriving before 8:30AM will wait in a queue and will have the chance to schedule only one 30 minutes session each.
