For the IGF 2015 meeting, the IGF's MAG decided to retain the title “Evolution of Internet Governance: Empowering Sustainable Development” as the overarching theme. This theme will be supported by eight sub-themes that will frame the discussions at João Pessoa, namely:
  • cybersecurity and trust;
  • the Internet economy;
  • inclusiveness and diversity;
  • openness;
  • enhancing multistakeholder cooperation;
  • the Internet and human rights;
  • critical Internet resources; and
  • emerging issues.
Remote participation will be available according to the Internet Governance Forum: "The links to access each meeting room will be provided one day before the IGF. All main sessions, workshops, Dynamic Coalitions, Open Fora, Side Sessions and Pre-events will have webcast, captionning and remote participation (Some workshop organizers may ask for some sessions not to have remote participation). Remote participants/hubs should take a look at the IGF schedule on the home page to see the room and the time of the sessions they would like to follow."
