The Washington DC Chapter of the Internet SocietyFree Eventbrite registration required.

To be webcast live at: http://www.isoc-dc.org/isoc-dc-tv/

Twitter hashtag: #isocdc @isocdc

We will take questions from Twitter

 

Late last month, more than a thousand delegates from almost a hundred countries gathered for four days at the eighth Internet Governance Forum in Bali, Indonesia, to discuss a wide range of issues related to the future of the Internet–from online privacy to management of domain names to NSA surveillance to human rights in cyberspace.  Much of the discussion in Bali revolved around a proposal by ICANN and the Brazilian government to hold a high-level conference on Internet issues in Brazil in late April or early May. The DC chapter of the Internet Society is convening an informal discussion about what happened in Bali–and what happens next–with regard to international Internet policy and business practices.

This will be an audience participation event.  More than a dozen IGF participants will be there to share their observations and experiences.  Whether you’re an IGF veteran or just curious about what happened there, come join the discussion and join the debate about how the Internet can and should evolve.

Discussion leaders:
David Gross, Wiley Rein
Gene Kimmelman

Moderator:
Michael Nelson – Principal Technology Policy Strategist, Microsoft

Schedule:
8:30 – 9:00 Networking and breakfast
9:00 –  9:30 Opening remarks and brief remarks by IGF participants
9:30 – 10:30 Group discussion

Wireless 2020: Spectrum Crisis or Broadband Abundance?

Friday, November 1, 2013 from 8:30 AM - 10:30 AM

Microsoft Innovation & Policy Center | 901 K Street Northwest | Washington, DC 20001

As wireless data demand increases at dizzying rates, meeting that demand will necessarily require innovative policy choices that encourage innovation and investment. The outcomes of these choices will shape the future of the Internet and the economy.

Join us and our distinguished panel for a spirited and informative exchange of ideas about the future of Spectrum Policy in the United States.

Free Eventbrite registration required.  Please consider making a suggested donation of $5 or $10 to help support ISOC-DC.

The President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST)—an independent council of experts from industry and academia—concludes that the traditional practice of clearing and reallocating portions of the spectrum used by Federal agencies is not a sustainable model for spectrum policy. PCAST finds instead that the best way to increase capacity is to leverage new technologies that enable larger blocks of spectrum to be shared. One advantage of sharing is that it does not require licensed businesses and government entities to fully clear certain wavelengths already in use—a process that can be time consuming and expensive.

“The norm for spectrum use should be sharing, not exclusivity,” the new PCAST report concludes, noting that a new spectrum architecture and a corresponding shift in practices could multiply the effective capacity of the spectrum by a factor of 1,000. “Spectrum should be managed not by fragmenting it into ever more finely divided exclusive frequency assignments, but by specifying large frequency bands that can accommodate a wide variety of compatible uses.”

Remote Hubs Instructions PDF Print E-mail

Hubs are local meetings that take place in parallel with the IGF. People can watch the webcast together and send questions (via text, audio or video) that will be answered by panelists in IGF. In addition, hub organizers can hold debates to discuss the themes introduced at the IGF from their local perspective. There are several advantages in creating a hub:

  • it helps to raise awareness about Internet Governance issues;
  • it fosters networking among participants and community building;
  • and it encourages follow-up activities.

 How to organize a hub?  The requirements are very simple:

  • A room or auditorium. It can be held in a university classroom or any other convenient place;
  • A computer with a broadband Internet connection and a projector equipment, to enable the hub participants to watch the video ;
  • A hub moderator, who will plan the dynamics of the local discussions as well as transmit the hub participants’ questions or comments to the IGF through the remote participation channels;
  • A general call in lists, forums etc, to invite the interested local community.

 Stakeholders interested in organizing a remote hub are invited to register online with the following information:

  • Country / City
  • Institution hosting the hub.
  • Possible area(s) of interest within the 6 main IGF themes.
  • Number of expected participants within the hub.
  • Planned pre-meeting activities.
  • Hub Coordinator.
  • Contact email.
  • Hub Technical coordinator (IT).
  • Technical coordinator contact email.

 

Register your hub here (Please make sure you are logged in first).

Please note that the local hub and technical coordinators have to be present at the hub site.

Training for the remote hubs will soon be scheduled.

Hub participants are also encouraged to send short pre-recorded video questions or statement (2-3 minutes), outlining key issues on the local discussion agenda.

Hubs are also possibly allowed to join with real-time video message.
