Third International Workshop on
Global Internet Governance: An Interdisciplinary Research Field in  

Montreal (QC), Canada - 30-31 May 2010

Organized by GigaNet, in cooperation with
The Canadian Communication Association and Media at McGill
Co-sponsored by GigaNet, ACC-CCA, Media at McGill, LIP6/CNRS and UPMC

Preliminary Announcement and Call for Contributions

The Global Internet Governance Academic Network (GigaNet) invites you  
to participate in its third scholarly
workshop to be held in Montreal (QC), Canada, on 30-31 May 2010. This  
workshop is organized in cooperation with the
Canadian Communication Association and Media at McGill, during the  
Canadian Federation for the Humanities and Social
Sciences (CFHSS) 2010 Congress week in Montreal.

Building on the success of its first two editions, respectively in  
Paris, France in June 2008 and in Brussels,
Belgium in May 2009, the purpose of this third GigaNet workshop is  

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.

Detailed information on the outreach sessions' program will be  
distributed closer to the event itself.

The second day will feature thematic presentations selected upon  
submissions made in response to this call for
contributions. We invite scholars to 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. Rather than featuring
academic paper presentations, the workshop aims at providing a survey  
of current academic activities in the field,
in order to share ideas and forge possible collaborations.  
Submissions are expected to focus on presenting
problematics, research designs, preliminary empirical results and  
conclusions in the aim of stimulating reflection
and discussion amongst the audience. Submissions may address, but are  
not limited to, the following topics:
involved actors and their interactions; Internet governance  
institutions and regimes; legal, socio-economical,
behavioral and technical regulation means; Internet governance policy  

Submissions in view of thematic presentations should be sent by 20  
March 2010 to Meryem Marzouki
(Meryem.Marzouki at lip6.fr). They should be written in English and  
include the name, affiliation, e-mail address and
short bio of author(s), along with no more than 500 words of research  
work description. The program committee will
notify applicants by 20 April 2010. To encourage knowledge  
dissemination, relevant submissions will be published on
the workshop website. Authors of selected submissions will be invited  
to present their work in the workshop
thematic sessions.
