Stay networked. Get informed. Broadcast your projects.
Keeping in view the dire need of Internet Governance issues understanding and capacity building among youth and Internet professionals of Pakistan, NUST SEECS in collaboration with Internet Society (ISOC) Pakistan Chapter is establishing remote participation hub for fifth annual IGF Meeting at NUST School of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, Sector H-12, Islamabad.
The remote hub will act as a local meeting where the participants will be able not only to watch the web and audio cast proceedings of the IGF but also to interact with the meeting participants. Participants will also be able to discuss the themes covered by the IGF from a local perspective, a stimulus or a starting point for the debate of local issues and implications and for the development of a network of interested people.
We are expecting a good number of participants from academia, ICT industry and general public attending sessions related to their area of interest. These hubs indeed are an excellent platform to encourage and facilitate the participation from economies where international meeting attendance cost hampers a great number of interested students and professionals from attending IG debates.
Our primary focus would be to cover the workshop sessions taking place at the Vilnius. In this regard we have selected number of workshops pertaining to issues of local importance. They include cyber security, freedom of speech, youth and Internet, IPv6 and digital inclusion. The registration details are available at http://seecs.nust.edu.pk/Seminars_workshops/pages/igf/index.php.
The support provided by Diplo and IGF Remote participation working group is just more than excellent as we look ahead to be part of IGF remotely.!!
