EuroDIG Sessions on Friday, June 5, about Cybersecurity, Network Neutrality, IANA, Access and More

Dan York

What do Europeans interested in Internet policy think about cybersecurity, network neutrality, IANA, improving Internet access and other topics? Tomorrow the second day of the European Dialog on Internet Governance (EuroDIG) 2015 in Sofia, Bulgaria, will cover all those topics and many more. The overall EuroDIG agenda can be found here:


I've listed below some of the sessions that either I or my Internet Society colleagues are participating in. I will personally be involved as a panelist on the two sessions about cybersecurity.

All of the sessions will be streamed live through YouTube and so I am assuming recordings will be available later.

Note that all times are Eastern European Summer Time (EEST) which is UTC+3 – 1 hour ahead of central Europe and 7 hours ahead of US Eastern:


The EuroDIG sessions are NOT the kind that use slides. They are designed to be highly interactive and my experience on the first day is that they generally are. We as panelists were told not to prepare any slides but rather to give 2-3 minutes of opening remarks and then have it go directly into Q&A.

You'll note that I provide a "Twitter hashtag" line for each panel. At EuroDIG each session has a massive screen displaying the "Twitter wall" of all the recent tweets using these various hashtags. This provides a "backchannel" for communication that is displayed out to everyone watching, including the speakers/panelists. While this can potentially be distracting, it has the effect of encouraging people to tweet… and so some of the sessions have had a GREAT amount of tweets showing up on the various hashtags. (As anyone who follows me on Twitter would have discovered today through the prolific live-tweeting that I was doing!)

Even if you do not use Twitter (and don't have an account) you can follow the hashtag links below to see what is being tweeted about that session in real time (or what *was* tweeted about the session later).

Beyond these sessions, the EuroDIG participants are also developing a statement about network neutrality that, if adopted, is intended to be submitted as a contribution to the Internet Governance Forum (IGF) in November of this year. You may hear this mentioned in several sessions and there will be some extra time on the main agenda devoted to this document.

Anyway, the sessions are listed below. For an overview of what I and my colleagues are doing this week in Bulgaria, please see this EuroDIG 2015 overview post on the Internet Society blog.
