We are pleased to announce the first India School on Internet Governance (inSIG 2016) at Hyderabad, Telangana State, from 31 October 2016 to 2 Nov 2016. This is just prior to ICANN’s 57th meeting, also scheduled at Hyderabad from 3rd Nov 2016 to 9th Nov 2016.

The principal objective of inSIG is to train professionals in the domain of Internet Governance, equipping them with the skills to enable them to participate effectively in global Internet Governance processes and institutions. inSIG is planned as an annual school that would be held in different parts of India each year.

inSIG is structured as a community initiative, originally proposed by two ICANN ALSes: ISOC India Trivandrum Chapter, and ISOC India Delhi Chapter. It is expected that in the course of organizing the first edition of inSIG, the steering group will evolve into a multistakeholder entity.

inSIG will collaborate with other SIG initiatives around the world, sharing experiences, processes and training material. In particular, inSIG is presently working closely with APSIG.
