Updated: Deadline Extension of Call for Workshop Proposals

Receiving many interests from the community on submitting workshop proposals, the MSG has decided to extend the submission deadline to allow more time for the community to fully develop their workshop proposals.

We welcome proposals for pre-events or main workshop sessions which should present the proposed issue in an inclusive manner, incorporating a multi-stakeholder perspective with a balance of stakeholders and gender in the speakers list.

There will not be further deadline extension. It is highly encouraged to submit your workshop proposal within the extended period.

Workshop Proposal Submission Deadline: 11 Mar 2015 (Wed) [Extended to 7 April (Tue)]

Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) is one of the key regional initiatives on Internet governance which provides an open platform for multi-stakeholders to discuss and identify issues and priorities, and ultimately advances the development of Internet governance in the Asia Pacific region as well as bring forward and contribute to the wider global Internet community.

Hosted by HNET.Asia, the registry for the ccTLD of Macao (.mo), APrIGF 2015 will be held from 30 Jun (Tue) to 3 Jul (Fri) at the Cotai Central┬áMacao in conjunction with an annual local telecommunications event – CommuniMacao (3-5 Jul). With the many recent developments of the Internet such as the IANA stewardship transition and the discussion of post-2015 development agenda, etc, APrIGF 2015 will definitely be the good platform for all these important discussions.

Our Multi-Stakeholder Steering Group(MSG) now would like to call upon the community to contribute to the program development process and suggest any thematic issues or topic of discussions as well as pre-events or workshop proposals for 2015!
