(Important) Information on Indico, the 2018 HLPF registration platform

We have received the following:

Please note that from 2018 onwards, NGOs in consultative status with ECOSOC and NGOs on the CSD roster will register to the HLPF using Indico, which replaces the CSO Net registration system. A key difference to note is that in the Indico platform each participant must create their own personal account in order to register to events, as opposed to using a single account per NGO as was done in CSO Net. 

Registration to the 2018 HLPF will open in the coming days, and we strongly recommend those who have yet to create an Indico account to visit https://reg.unog.ch/ Please see the quick guide for instructions on how to create your account in Indico…
