Event Description

The Netherlands will host the fourth international Cyberspace Conference - the Global Conference on Cyberspace 2015 (GCCS2015) - on 16-17 April 2015. Following the Conferences on Cyberspace held in London (2011), Budapest (2012) and Seoul (2013), and taking place almost exactly one year after NETmundial, the Netherlands’ Global Conference on Cyberspace is ideally positioned to take stock of the progress made on the implementation of the Roadmap.

Operationalising the Seoul Framework, the conference aims at exchanging knowledge and ideas on strategic cyberspace issues and developing concrete solutions to urgent problems. All relevant stakeholder groups from across the globe, including government, industry and civil society groups will participate in the conference. This multi-stakeholders approach is also mirrored by the conference’s focus on public-private cooperation in relation to internet governance.

Cybersecurity is a growing challenge that requires not only a national, but also an international response. By hosting this conference, the Netherlands will be taking the lead in a field that affects everyone every day, both privately and in the workplace. It offers the Netherlands a great opportunity to present the Dutch vision of a digital world that centers around the intersection of freedom, safety and social and economic growth.

Friends, an update on this event. The organisers have issued a call for expressions of interest for Civil Society participation: https://www.gccs2015.com/civil-society-participation-form

The conference organisers are very interested in securing civil society participation. Those interested in attending should fill in the Expression of Interest Form below. Limited financial support is available for a number of civil society participants, and the information given will help decide who will receive support.

A day and a half civil society pre-event will take place in the run-up to the Conference (14-15 April) to facilitate civil society coordination and input into the main Conference. An in-depth training on cyber security issues would be offered as part of this pre-event. In addition, an online training curriculum will be made available to the wider public. The Conference organisers are interested in a balanced and diverse participation and in supporting those who will find a practical use for the training and attendance offered. 

An ad hoc Advisory Board will assist the organizers of the Conference in selecting civil society participants to attend the GCCS2015 and the civil society pre-event, to help ensure that the Conference is inclusive and representative.
