8th Annual Symposium
21 October 2013
Bali, Indonesia

Deadline for abstract submission: July 1 2013

The Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) is seeking research submissions about Internet Governance to be presented at its Eighth Annual Symposium, held on 21 October 2013, one day before the United Nations Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in Bali, Indonesia.

GigaNet is a scholarly community that promotes the development of Internet Governance as a recognized, interdisciplinary field of study and facilitates informed dialogue on policy issues and related matters between scholars and governments, international organizations, the private sector and civil society. http://giga-net.org/

Since 2006, GigaNet has organized an Annual Symposium to showcase research about Internet Governance, bringing together researchers from a wide range of disciplines and fields. As in previous years, the symposium will provide room to discuss current and future questions as well as the challenges encountered and results achieved in global Internet governance.

Conference themes

GigaNet is interested in receiving abstracts related to Internet Governance themes, especially those containing innovative approaches and/or emerging research areas. This year, we are especially encouraging submissions on two interwoven themes:

•        Cybersecurity, cybersurveillance, cyberespionage and cyberwarfare and
•        State and non-state actor efforts to control the Internet

The program committee welcomes proposals on any other topics related to global Internet governance.

This year, one panel will be especially devoted to emerging scholars in the field. We define emerging scholars as doctoral students working on an approved proposal through scholars who have received their PhD within the past three years.

Accepted papers from senior scholars will be presented and discussed in a roundtable format involving business, government and technical community representatives, while emerging scholars will present their work in a more traditional academic panel. In both cases, presenters should expect to have conversations about their work with people from a wide range of stakeholder groups.

Interested scholars should submit abstracts of their research paper at the Easy Chair platform:


The deadline for submission is July 1, 2013!

Paper proposals should be submitted following these requirements:
       An abstract of 800-1000 words, in English, where it is mandatory to describe the main research goal(s) and the methodological background of the paper
       A short bio note focused on institutional affiliations, advanced degrees, scholarly publications and work in the field of Internet Governance and related issues (for example ICTs). Please include a link to a more detailed CV.
       Authors of accepted abstracts must submit their final papers by 30 September 2013. Those unable to do so will be removed from the program.

Process and publication
The Program Committee will evaluate submitted abstracts and inform proposal authors of acceptance decisions by email before 29 July 2013.

Accepted submissions and final papers will be published on the GigaNet website. An online publication with selected papers on the main challenges of Internet Governance is also planned for the Bali IGF.

The GigaNet Annual Symposium is free of charge. However, registration will be required to gain entry to the event venue. Please continue visiting our website for further information about registration, venue and accommodation.

If you have any question related to the submission or the symposium activities, please
e-mail the Program Committee Chair: j-laprise at northwestern.edu<mailto:j-laprise at northwestern.edu>.
