Announcing INET/IGC 2004: The premier global Internet conference

The Internet Society is pleased to announce that one of next year’s major Internet events, INET/IGC 2004 will take place in Barcelona, Spain from May 10th to 14th, 2004. Since 1991, the Internet Society's annual INET events have given members of the global Internet community, technology experts, policy makers and business leaders a unique opportunity to meet to debate and discuss the technologies and policies that are defining the future of the Internet.

INET is the longest running global conference focusing specifically on the Internet. Themes cover a diverse range of subjects including Technology, Uses of the Internet, Policy, Social Issues and Governance. A typical INET brings together Internet architects and professionals from more than 120 countries.

INET conferences give attendees a valuable insight into the current state of the Internet, its technologies, social impacts and future directions. Furthermore, INET has a reputation for its high quality sessions and tutorials – many of which are presented by those driving the Internet technology standards processes. Being the organizational home of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), the Internet Society is able to use INET to bring you highly relevant and up-to-date information on the latest Internet standardization activities.

INET attendees also appreciate the time spent with their Internet leadership peers exchanging information and opinions in a stimulating environment away from their usual day-to-day activities.

Following recent successful conferences in Washington, Yokohama and Stockholm, this edition of INET will be the first to be held in conjunction with Spain's Internet Global Congress (IGC) in Barcelona. This cooperation will also provide attendees with a rare insight into how the global and local influences on the Internet intersect.

If you are involved in any way with Internet technologies or policies, make sure you don’t miss INET/IGC 2004 – the premier global Internet conference!

More details of the conference program and registration details will be available soon on the Internet Society web site.
