IEEE Summit on Internet Governance 2014
 December 3, 2014Brussels, Belgiumwww.ieee-ig-summit.org/2014/index.html

Technology has dramatically advanced quality of life and increased prosperity through much of the world. The rate and geographic extent with which these advances continue and accelerate in the 21st century will depend, to a substantial degree, on the effectiveness with which national and regional governments pursue robust technology policies.

The IEEE Summit on Internet Governance is the first in a series of high-level discussions bringing influential technology policy specialists together with prominent engineers and scientists to discuss critical issues in technology policy for Europe. In addition to a keynote presentation by Vint Cerf (below), extended panel discussions (right) focus on three of the most important debates around internet governance today:

  • Net Neutrality: potential technical and economic consequences of possible decisions.
  • Security vs. Privacy: What is the appropriate balance, and how can technology help achieve and maintain it?
  • The Future of Internet Governance: visions of multi-stakeholder governance, or multinational governance.
