Remote participation is one of the applications that should be put in place in order to reduce the different gaps related to the Internet today, such as access, age, gender and informational gaps. The discussions in the meeting aim to contribute to the general Internet governance debate, and the outcomes of the discussions in EuroDIG will be taken to the IGF in Istanbul. Unfortunately, several factors may hamper physical attendance, such as professional commitments and travel costs. But staying in your home city does not mean that it is not possible to follow the debates. It does not mean you cannot participate actively and make your voice heard.

It will be possible to follow the conference from a distance, as the main EuroDIG sessions will be broad casted live and captioning will be provided too. There is also a possibility to interact with the speakers and with panel as a remote participant

  1. via twitter – using the hashtag #eurodig_pl1…pl6 and #eurodig_ws1…ws8
  2. via WebEX which will be used as the platform for remote participation. In order to watch the  video streaming and participate remotely at different sessions you will need to connect to WebEX virtual rooms. Please check if your computer is ready to start and enter the virtual room here

Training session

A remote participation training session has been scheduled for 6 June 2014 at 10.00 AM (GMT+2). If you would like to attend, please register here. If you need a training session for attending EuroDIG remotely and cannot make it at the scheduled time, please contact rp@eurodig.org

Come and join us at a hub!

The hubs are local meetings that take place in parallel with the main meeting. People can watch the web cast together and send questions (text or video) that will be answered by panelists in EuroDIG. In addition, hub organizers can hold debates to discuss the themes introduced at the EuroDIG, but from a local perspective.

There are several advantages in creating a hub:

  • it helps to raise awareness about Internet governance issues
  • it fosters networking among participants and community building
  • it encourages follow‐up activities.

How to organize a hub?

The requirements are very simple:

  • A room or auditorium. It can be held in a university classroom or any other convenient place
  • A computer with a broadband Internet connection and a video‐conference (or projector) equipment, to watch the web cast
  • A hub moderator, who will plan the dynamics of the local round tables and discussions as well as transmit the hub participants’ questions or comments to the main EuroDIG meeting through the remote participation channels.
  • A general call in lists, forums, etc, to invite the interested local community

Dynamics of interaction during the meeting

Remote participants will be able to follow the meeting taking place in Berlin by watching video cast or listening to audio casts from the meeting rooms, by viewing the PPT presentations from the speakers, and by reading real-time closed captioning.

Remote participants will be able to interact with the meeting individually or from a hub. All remote participants will be able to send text questions, using WebEX. These questions will be forwarded to the panel moderator when he/she opens the floor for questions from the audience. The statements will be read out and the video will be projected on the large meeting screen.

Both physical and remote attendees are encouraged to tweet about the event using the respective hashtag for each session. The comments on Twitter will be monitored and questions could be forwarded to the panel moderators.
