 Along with the remarkable keynoters named above, three expert panels
 will identify and examine the critical decisions that will shape the
 Internet's future, including:

 * Who will help define the Internet's evolution?
 * What role should government and private industry play?
 * What is the public interest?
 * How do we provide greater bandwidth and access?
 * What does online privacy mean in the age of Facebook and Wikileaks?

 Finally the event will conclude with a three way dialog between the
 keynoters, moderated by Internet Society President Lynn St. Amour.

 As you will see from the program we have gathered some of the top
 minds in Internet development from all sides of the spectrum. While we
 are looking foremost to make serious strides on setting the agenda for
 Internet progress in the foreseeable future, obviously this INET will
 also provide a great networking opportunity. We've deliberately kept
 the cost affordable to gain a wide audience. Space is limited so it is
 advisable to register a.s.a.p. For those of you unable to attend in
 person, or who miss the cut, there will be free remote participation,
 details to be announced nearer the day.
