One quick comment to the thematic priorities:
We should be as flexible as possible.
On the one hand - and here I support Bill - we have to understand and accept that we are constituency WITHIN ICANN and we are insofar part of ICANNs limited technical manadate, dealing primarily with (political, legal, social, economic and other) issues related to the management of critical Internet ressources.
On the other hand, we are a unique combination and gathering of European Internet related civil society organisations and the potentail of EURALO could go also beyond its limited mandate. With other words, EURALO could also function as the civil society arm of EURODIG which has a much broader mandate. However we have to be very careful in make distinction when we act purely as an ICANN constituency and when we go beyond the basic mandate.
We could establish a special EURALO EURODIG Working Group which could deal with non-ICANN issues as net neutrality, cloud computing, internet of things and human rights in a more general understanding (not restricted to WHOIS and TLDs).

>Just one question: I see you've put me down in a net neutrality group. It's an important topic of course, but I don't quite see it as an ICANN matter in the first instance. Ditto open access, accessibility and inclusion. Did you have something specific in mind in relation to our mandate that I'm missing?
(Wolf) Well, as you may recall from our Lisbon GA last Wednesday, under agenda item C 10 - 12, we discussed "EURALO assessment and functioning" and definition of thematic priorities where EURALO can provide special expertise and may assure follow-up. Usually, we are asked by ICANN and ALAC to provide our regional advice on all sorts of issues where we are often not specialized. And when we discuss options for a better involvement and participation at ALAC, I think it's reasonable to ask our members in a bottom-up manner what *their* thematic priorities are. As a (first) outcome of this discussion last Wednesday, we listed and approved these 5 regional priorities -- while you were in the room to my memory.
>Personally, rather than drilling down into any one substantive policy area, I would rather allocate my At Large bandwidth to the general state of noncommercial/civil society participation and inputs within our vaunted multistakeholder system. Here I could see synergies with not only the larger At Large and ALAC but also NCSG and its constituencies as well. I'd argue there's a growing need for work on that given the new gTLD program, resurgent GAC, the bypassing of the community policy processes and unilateral staff/board actions, etc.
(Wolf) The listing of names under each topic is "preliminary and incomplete" (as I mentioned below) and nobody is captured for anything, and I will put off your name. You can use and allocate your At-Large bandwidth for anything you consider appropriate -- as you said above.
