The Internet ecosystem – what's behind our connected devices?

Breakfast Debate


This EIF breakfast debate will bring together a representative group of Internet organizations, such as domain name registries and institutions, numbering organizations, ISPs, Internet exchange points, telecom providers, etc. to illustrate how the distributed model of governance of the Internet works, how it ensures a secure, stable, open and resilient Internet and how to participate and get involved.

As a sub topic of the breakfast we can have a look into recent developments with the expansion of the DNS space: What will Internet look like in the future and how it’s being coordinated to promote more choice and innovation, opportunities and challenges ahead in the DNS space?
