    .au Domain Administration Ltd (auDA), manager of Australia’s “.au” namespace, is proud to announce the launch of the 2013 Australian Internet Governance Forum (auIGF).

    The auIGF brings together stakeholders from industry, government, academia and the not-for-profit sector to discuss Internet-related issues, exchange ideas and best practices, and help shape the future of the Internet in Australia.

    The event will be held on 16 and 17 October 2013 at the Park Hyatt in Melbourne.

    Its main themes will be:
    • Legal frameworks and cybercrime
    • The role of the Internet in breaking down national, social and cultural borders
    • Children and the Internet – rights and protections
    • New generic Top Level Domains (new gTLDs) – consumer choice or consumer constraint?
    To ensure that the auIGF is relevant and responsive to the needs of the Australian community, organisers are seeking the input of stakeholders to identify the Internet-related issues that matter most to them.

    You can find out more information at the IGF website.

    Cheers,
    Chris
