     Event Description:
     The Internetâs status as a communication medium that is decentralized,
     scalable and global continues to pose challenging new problems in
     governance and regulation. GigaNet, an international scholarly
     community created in 2006, holds a two-day conference to explore issues
     such as IP address scarcity, ICANN accountability, the role of social
     media in toppling dictatorships, censorship, privacy online, and the
     tensions between national security and Internet freedom.  Assistant
     Secretary for Commerce Larry Strickling (NTIA) will provide the keynote
     speech during lunch on Thursday, May 5.  (The event will be held in the
     new, LEEDS GOLD/certified SIS Building on the campus of American
     University in northwest Washington, DC.)

     Day one engages policy makers, academics and civil society at large in
     dialogue on policy issues in global Internet governance.  The goal is
     to facilitate informed dialogue on policy issues and related matters
     between scholars and Internet governance stakeholders.
      Day two features presentations of scholarly research based on peer
     reviewed papers. The goal is to support scholarship and advance
     theoretical and applied research on Internet governance.  All are
     welcome to attend; preregistration is required.
