2009 Annual Symposium
Fourth GigaNet Annual Symposium
14 November 2009
|PAPERS WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON!||If you have any questions regarding the Symposium, please send a message to giganetPC2009@gmail.com|
The Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) is a scholarly community which aims: (i) to promote the development of Internet Governance as a recognized interdisciplinary field of study and (ii) to facilitate the informed dialogue on policy and issues in a multistakeholder approach.
In order to fulfills its goals, since 2006, it has been organizing a collective premier research event, the GigaNet Annual Symposium at the Internet Governance Forum meetings, which is an opportunity to showcase some of the best current research on Internet Governance from around the world and provides a venue for scholars to discuss and debate these crucial issues.
Prior successful symposia in Greece (2006), Brazil (2007) and India (2008) lead us to the Fourth GigaNet Symposium to be held in Sharm-El-Sheikh, Egypt, on November 14th, 2009- one day before the IGF official opening, at Maritim Sharm El Sheikh International Congress Centre (SHICC) - Room Nile Valley. Also, we will again offer Remote Participation options for the Symposium. Links to the recordings of the remote participation are below.
