What are the most pressing Internet governance issues in the next 2-5 years? What are the biggest priorities in terms of making the Internet more secure and trusted? What are the best ways to bring the next 3 billion people online?

You can join in from your home, office or wherever you can get Internet access. In some cities around the world, there will be regional nodes where people will be gathering (and I, in fact, will be in the Ottawa, Ontario, node).
The meeting is taking part in two sessions to bring in people across all timezones. The two sessions are:
You can join into whichever session works for you.
There is no cost to participate… you simply have to register. InterCommunity 2015 is a global meeting of Internet Society members, but if you are not already a member (membership is free!) you can easily join as a member as part of the registration process.
InterCommunity 2015 is a great opportunity to join with people across the world to talk about how we address these critical issues - and to join together to take action to bring about the Internet's full potential.
