Workshop

Theme

Internet Governance Principles

Cyberspace and cyberspace goverenance with the Internet as a core entity is becoming an emerging major issue around the world.  Research groups on the cyberspace are appearing including Explorations on Cyber International Relations (ECIR), and Canada Center for Global Security Studies.  There are conferences and workshops on cyberspace  from early 2010s including

   - Annual International Cyberspace Conference
   - ECIR Workshops on "Who Controls Cyberspace?" and other topics
   - Cyber Dialogue Conference

This workshop proposal is to address on cyberspace and cyperspace governance with respect to the Internet and the Internet governance.  We may cover some of the following aspects of cyberspace in this workshop;

   - Cyber Society
   - Cyber Security
   - Cyber Economy
   - Cyber Nation States
   - Cyber Environment

More aspects such as education, labor, and health may be covered later.

The participants include

Director of Explorations on Cyber International Relations, Harvard-MIT, USA
Chair of Annual Cyber Dialogue Conference, U. of Toronto, Canada
Chair of Cyber Commons, Korea
Executive Director of AfriNIC, Africa
Member of European Parliament
Staff of Swedish Foreign Ministry
Professor of National University of Mexico

Specific issues we would like to cover in this workshop include

Part 1: Cyberspace
1.1 What is cyberspace with respect to the Internet
     Cyberspace needs to be defined, in particular with respect to the Internet and other
     infrastructures.
1.2 What are major aspects of cyberspace?
     Cyber Security is the most visibloe aspect of the cyberspace now.  We also
     address on Cyber Society as another major aspect.  What aspects we need to
     consider as major aspects such as economy, nation states, environment, labor
     education and health among others?
1.3 What is the mixed space, i.e. overlapping area between cyberspace and real
     space?  Cyber-physical systems are visible lately.  Are there any other major mixed
     spaces?

Part 2: Cyberspace Goverenance
2.1 What is cyberspace governance with respect to the Internet governance?
     What are similarities between these two areas, and what are differences?
2.2 Is the multi-stakeholder approach relevant to each aspect of the cyberspce
     governance?  What about the multi-stakeholder for cyber security?
2.3 Is control on cyberspace more relevant than governance on cyberspace now
     or in future?

We will have a short video to visualize cybermedia including cyber security, which was originally developed for Cyber Dialogue Conference at Toronto this year.  The video will be edited to suit to the IGF Workshop.

Suitability for Remote Participation

We expect one remote presentation from USA if the workshop time is appropriate, i.e, morning in Bali, which would be late night in East Coast of USA.  We don't expect the remote hubs.

We may add some social media to enhance discussion.  Twitter would be the candidate social media.

Please try to schedule our workshop in the morning so that one of our panelist could join from East Coast of USA.
