The World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) is a joint effort of the ITU and the United Nations. Two meetings were held – Geneva 2003 and Tunis 2005 – that gave arise to a Declaration of Principles , a Plan of Action, then a Commitment and an Agenda. The two Internet Governance Forums (IGF), in Athens 2006 and Rio 2007, were a direct result. A 3rd IGF will be held in Hyderabad, India, in Dec 2008. Before that, however, a cluster of WSIS-related events will take place in Geneva from 12-29 may 2008.
