GigaNet: 1st internet governance research symposium, Athens
The Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) will be holding its first annual symposium in Athens on 29 October 2006. GigaNet plans to organize symposia to be held on site prior to the annual meetings of the new UN Internet Governance Forum (IGF). This event is the first in that series, and the full programe has just been finished. Participation is free of charge.
I have been part of the startup team since the kick-off conference in June, but still had to have my proposal vetted by the peers. Luckily, I was accepted for the theory panel. I will talk about "Hybrid Regimes, Power, and Legitimacy in Global Governance: Insights from Internet Privacy Regulation". Hope to see many of you there!
Because the preparation time for this first meeting was too short, we will not have full papers, but just presentations. I still hope (and think) that there will be some kind of online remote participation and documentation.
