Each session track should report back on statements to include in a Research and Action Agenda.
Reports may indicate whether items should be included for public release, or only for dissemination to the Congress Participants.
Commitments may include pledges to circulate statements for adoption after the Congress.
Participants were invited to propose 1.5 hour workshops (9:30–11am or 11:30am–1pm), for any purpose, including to present research, to solicit feedback on works-in-progress, to plot strategy and tactics, etc. The planning committee grouped proposals into 16 sessions, across 8 tracks:
- Patent Law;
- Trade Agreements;
- Copyright Exceptions and Limitations;
- Licensing, the Public Domain, and Collective Management;
- Research and Advocacy on Internet Policy and Human Rights;
- Empirical Research;
- New Research #1;
- New Research #2.
Workshops may, but are not required to, report back to the General Assembly. A full schedule is coming soon, but information os specific workshops is being added on a daily basis. Please check below.
