This is an opportunity for scholars with a research interest in Internet
policy to explore research aspects of the auIGF’s agenda and other
Internet policy issues.
We are currently seeking submissions on the broad theme of Internet
policy research and particularly welcome contributions which look at
Internet policy topics in Australia and the broader Asia Pacific region.
Accordingly, authors are invited to submit abstracts on a broad spectrum
of Internet policy topics that include, but are not restricted to:Â
·        Intellectual property and the Internet
·        The Internet economy
·        Data retention, surveillance and privacy
·        Internet governance, domain names
·        Net neutrality
·        Digital society
·        Digital inclusion

_Â Â  Emerging Scholars stream_

   The first day of the workshop will be an opportunity for emerging
scholars (PhD candidates and recent doctoral graduates) to present a
paper on their current research on Internet policy themes, and receive
feedback on their work from a discussant. Emerging scholars will also
have the opportunity to engage with senior academics and other emerging
scholars in a relaxed and supportive environment.Â

We encourage academic researchers from all relevant disciplines to send
proposals of no more than 500 words and a short bio statement to Dr
Angela Daly ((acdaly /at/
