From the announcement:

“The first day will be dedicated to outreach sessions aimed at increasing the interest in the Global Internet Governance field among both various academic disciplines and the civil society at large, including but not limited to NGOs and civil society groups active in related fields. These outreach sessions will include academic tutorials on Global Internet Governance as well as information and discussion led by experts in the field on current Global Internet Governance debates and their relevance to public policy making.

The second day features thematic presentations selected upon submissions made in response to a call for contributions. Scholars will present and discuss their work-in-progress in Internet Governance-related research, with the aim to identify emerging research themes and design a research agenda.
In order to provide a survey of current academic activities in the field, share ideas and forge possible collaborations, presentations will focus on problematics, research designs, preliminary empirical results and conclusions in the aim of stimulating reflection and discussion amongst the audience.”
