Event Description

Extended abstract submission deadline: 10 June 2017
Full papers due: 10 October 2017

The Internet is one of the major manifestations of globalization, yet the current political climate is characterized by a reaction against globalization and a surge of populism and nationalism in many countries. At the same time, assertions of sovereignty in cyberspace are met with warnings about fragmentation. How resilient are Internet governance institutions and practices when trends in international relations and domestic policy shift?

GigaNet is now accepting proposals for papers to be presented at its annual symposium in Geneva. While papers related to the symposium theme are encouraged, authors from any field of study, any methodological or theoretical approach, or working on any aspect of Internet governance are invited to submit their work. Suggested topics:
 * Trade agreements and Internet governance
 * The role of sovereignty in cyberspace
 * The prospects of jurisdictional or technical fragmentation of the Internet
 * Multistakeholder governance and the distribution of power in IG institutions
 * Governance of the Internet of things (IoT)
 * Transborder data flows and U.S.-European negotiations on the new privacy shield agreement
 * Algorithmic regulation and intermediary platforms
 * The post-transition ICANN; ICANN-related policy issues
 * Cybersecurity, cyber conflict among great powers, and Internet governance
 * New methods for measuring Internet governance-related phenomena
