Second International Symposium on Global Information Governance (ISGIG)
Conflict and Collaboration in Compliance, Governance and Risk
ISGIG 2009 - the Internet of the Future
As General Chair, I am pleased to invite you and your colleagues to attend the upcoming International Symposium on Global Information Governance (ISGIG), to be held in Prague, Czech Republic on September 15-16.
The Internet of the Future is the theme of ISGIG 2009. ISGIG 2009 is unique in being specifically designed to bring together and improve communication among diverse and normally separate communities -- academics, regulators, compliance officers, business managers and IT managers -- by exposing problems, and uncovering potential problems, in the areas of privacy, compliance, governance, and risk.
Ideas and concepts discussed at ISGIG 2009 will be used to structure a proposal to a major internationally respected organization which funds research. We will propose that a study group produce a report structuring and analyzing the key dimensions of Internet governance.
Issues of Internet governance create situations for both conflict and cooperation among different constituencies. Participants will hear from and interact with a distinguished line-up of international experts in the fields of Internet governance, privacy and innovative technology trends. The agenda has been designed to offer many opportunities for networking and open discussion among the delegates and speakers.
Keynote speakers at ISGIG 2009:
- Ann Cavoukian, Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario, Canada,
- Stewart Baker, Former First Assistant Secretary for Policy at the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, U.S.A.,
- Jacques Bus, Head of Unit, Trust & Security in ICT, Research, European Commission,
- David Farber, Distinguished Career Professor of Computer Science and Public Policy, Carnegie Mellon University, U.S.A.
We hope you will attend this important conference to participate in the discussions and hear from people of influence in this ever-changing field.
