Collaborative Leadership Exchange (CLX) 2012

‹ Back

The following session topics were proposed by both event participants and event organizers, and helped to shape the agenda. For more information, read the complete session notes.

Proposed Session Topics

  • Net Rights, Net Neutrality, and Data Protection: Without a doubt the Internet has provided a host of new capabilities layered on fundamental protocols, and these capabilities are now starting to provoke massive cognitive and social transformations in our daily lives. Yet the last year has seen a debate both in the UN, EC, and in the popular press over the relationship of human rights to internet access, provoked by a large extent by the Egyptian Internet Shutdown and increasing pressure against net neutrality. These tensions around the Net and rights are increasingly felt throughout the entire stack: On the level of network infrastructure, SOPA/PIPA and now ACTA are causing increasing debates around “deep packet inspection” and DNS, while on the level of cloud infrastructure, there is also increasing concern about the amount of personal data being accumulated by large cloud providers as shown by the EC Data Protection Directive. The question of how to preserve the ability to connect to the net and increase the capabilities of citizens needs more thought and debate.
  • Shaping the Future Course of Standards: This discussion will focus on ways in which the Internet Society and allied organizations can continue to take a leading role in influencing Internet and Web standards that align with ISOC priorties. The hope is to share ideas on how to influence and drive the evolution of the Internet in an effective and beneficial manner, while also engaging youth and future generations and encouraging their participation in the process.
  • Privacy and Security: These two issues are increasingly at the center of many Internet policy and practice discussions. Discussion will consider ways in which to better protect privacy of both organizations and individuals, as well as the role and feasibility of anonymity in ‘sensitive’ political situations.
  • Critical Internet Resources in 2012: (IDN’s, new gTLDs, and IPv6): This session consider a range of Topics. Since the first IDNs rolled out at the beginning of 2010, how have they matured? Are there any success stories? Has there been a visible need for them? What has kept them from further gaining more attention from registrants? As time permits, participants will also discuss the New gTLD program, its classifications, the need, and the opportunities they bring along, as well as any drawbacks they may have on IPR and TMP.
  • Critical Internet Resources and Multilingualism: Since 100′s of New gTLDs are expected to roll-out year end, how might they impact ccTLDs (whether positively or negatively) on the long run. Have IDNs impacted in increasing local Internet content? This session will address this topic in the context of “Multilingualism”, “Local Content”, “Universal Acceptance of IDNs”
  • The Advocacy Role of the Internet Society: How we can lead the advocacy of Internet users when confronted with the commercial and economic interests of the big companies? Topics to be addressed will include Internet advocacy and leadership in the context of “big data”, “cloud computing” and Internet neutrality
  • Bringing Knowledge Home: How can one bring the gained knowledge into your local community-as many of the participants are alumnus of different programs/organizations, such as ICANN fellowship, ISOC Ambassadorship, Diplo Foundation Capacity Building Programs. Participants will discuss what kinds of challeneges do young people face in their own community in the knowledge sharing part – be it a technical person, or academia, or civil society representative.
  • How to Create an ISOC Chapter in Comoros
  • How to Thrive in Internet and Public Sectors While Working Within Private Sectors
  • Building for the Future: On a present global economic, cultural and political world, how does the Internet build the present conception of global activities and mind, as well as looks for a deeper development at a medium and near term, as well as the next decade.
  • A Social Network About “The Investors Community”. The “motto” in the “Los Álamos” Foundation, fundacionlosalamos.es in español, english & français: “Think Global and Act Local”. What does it mean to be “Glo-Cal”.
  • How to Identify Our Own Leadership Styles and Build on Them
  • Growing the Network: How to attract the interest of potential participants to engage in projects/activities, preferably by taking on an active role.
  • How to Successfully Implement Online Initiatives in the Real World: In other words, how to make the 1000 people, who have confirmed online, to actually show up at the event?
  • Building Your Base: How to achieve a true multistakeholder involvement for a cause, mainly with regard to drafting an agenda, building sustainable interaction and feedback?
  • Role of Chapters to create awareness of ISOC and IETF in the Academia and the Post Graduate (PG) Students: A discussion of possible approaches, including Annual exhibition of PG students’ work at chapter level and involving PG students in the Chapter activities so that ISOC ambassadors are in the academia as well, and participants will be invited to share other ideas.
  • Extending the access of Internet Technology in underserved area: How we can start process of building such common framework to extend the access of Internet Technology in to the underserved communities of developing world?
  • Balancing Accountability: Who has more responsibility (Government, Operator, End-User)
  • Empowering your Community through Internet

  • Putting the Internet on the [Political] Agenda in Low-Income Countries
  • Towards Broader Collaboration: How the Internet Society can collaborate more effectively with fellow like-minded organizations, with the goal being that working together makes for stronger outcomes for the organizations themselves, and for all Internet users.
  • Strategic Listening: This session will consider the importance of strategic listening across all segments of the Internet community.
