dotBERLIN-Vorschläge zum IGF 2019

Logo des IGF 2019

Das diesjährige Internet Governance Forum (IGF) steht allen Interessierten offen, die eigene Themen rund um rechtliche, politische, soziale und technische Fragen des Internets einbringen wollen. Das IGF findet in Berlin vom 25.-29. November erstmalig in Berlin statt, die Webseite unter www.igf2019.berlin hält alle weiteren Informationen bereit. Es werden rund 3.000 Teilnehmer aus aller Welt erwartet.

Da dotBERLIN eine der vielen Organisationen des Internet-Ökosystems ist haben wir für das IGF 2019 bereits im Januar insgesamt drei Themenvorschläge eingebracht, die neben vielen anderen, unter https://www.intgovforum.org/multilingual/igf-2019-proposed-issues abrufbar sind:

Chances and Challenges of Single Sign-on Digital Identities for Citizens.     

Digital identities for citizens touch key questions like security, privacy and openess for the involved parties which are governments, companies and individuals. The issue is to discuss which single sign-on digital identities are capable to fulfill todays and future requirements and how should their governance look like: Industry made closed identities (walled-garden) or community/government managed open identites.

Why DNS infrastructure is a key asset of the future smart places.     

Our digital communication is largely based on the DNS (Domain-Name-System). Although being a critical infrastructure, the DNS has not really reached the political discussion. The issue is about how to sensitise and secure international and multi-stakeholder attention for the DNS as neccessary infrastructure for the digitalisation of smart places in the 21. century.

Public interest challenges in governing geographic top-level domains.     

Over 60 new geographic top-level domains (geoTLDs) have become digital identities for cities and regions so far. What are the key challenges for stakeholders in governing the place’s digital home and what are the key factors that make a geoTLD a success for the place and its inhabitans. When is the next opportunity to apply for a geoTLD?

Vor dem internationale IGF findet am 11. September das nationale IGF statt. Auch hier können von interessierten Personen und Organisationen bis zum 13. März Themenvorschläge eingereicht werden: https://www.intgovforum-deutschland.org/callforparticipation-288416.html
