This call will be co-led by Ryan Budish of the Berkman Center for Internet & Society, and Juliana Nolasco of ITS Rio. They have provided the following description:
With the impending IANA transition, and the increased reliance on multistakeholder governance in a variety of fora, the NoC's research on these complex systems is more relevant than ever. After brief updates from the Berkman Center and ITS Rio on their research into these governance systems, this hangout will provide an opportunity for participants to share some of their recent research, pose questions they are currently engaged with, seek areas of potential collaboration, and identify topics for future engagement.
The Hangout will be accesible using Adobe Connect, a platform for web conferencing that is accessible from a variety of browsers and devices, or by phone (for further details for joining the call please write to firstname.lastname@example.org)
In order to make it easy to ask questions the Berkman Question Tool will be used. This tool will enable asking and upvoting questions both before and during the hangout.
If you are planning to join the call, please RSVP to Annie Pruitt (email@example.com) so that we can get a sense of who will be participating. Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or comments about the Hangout series, and we hope to speak with you on the 22nd.
