The Number Resource Organization taking part in the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS)

Geneva, 2003 | Tunis, 2005

The Internet Pavilion

During WSIS Phase 2, to be held in Tunis from 16-18 November 2005, the Number Resource Organization (NRO) is joining the “Internet Pavilion” at the ICT4all exhibition.

The Internet Pavilion, on stand 1323, brings together a number of the key organizations
responsible for both day-to-day management and policy development in the Internet sphere. Co-exhibitors include the NRO, the Internet Society, IAB, IETF, ICANN, CENTR and LINX.

The purpose of the Internet Pavilion is to help the participants of the World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS) understand how the existing governance mechanisms work and how these mechanisms relate to the findings of the Working Group on Internet Governance (WGIG) Final Report and the WSIS principles in general.

The Internet Pavilion will facilitate an understanding of why a collaborative and cooperative governance model is essential to the success of the Internet and the roll out of the Information Society in the future.

The Internet Pavilion will act as a medium through which the co-exhibitors and invited guests will reinforce the very important role that the Internet has in promoting education, economic development, knowledge transfer, etc.

The exhibition will take place from 15-19 November at the Kram PalExpo.
