I only mentioned the because we tried to host the event at Emalus campus last year which was running at the same time as PacINET 2010 but it was not practically possible because of the time. It is such great idea and would there be a chance that it can be hosted at the ICT Center at USP or any USP centers around the region?
It might need a team to look into this possibilities.--On Fri, Aug 5, 2011 at 8:32 AM, Salanieta T. Tamanikaiwaimaro <email@example.com> wrote:
Hi Andrew,The time difference is something that all over the world remote hubs will face, this is why it is critical that they see the issues are relevant to them to get them to want/desire to participate and also have fun together.Cheers,sala--On Fri, Aug 5, 2011 at 9:24 AM, Andrew Molivurae <firstname.lastname@example.org> wrote:

Subject: [PICISOC] Call for Remote Hub Registration: IGF 2011
The Pacific has no excuse not to participate even remotely and it is critical that our presence is registered and that we actively participate even if remotely in the Internet Governance Forum in Nairobi, Kenya from 27th - 30th September, 2011.
You can get a few people together and create a hub, see below. See message from Marilia Marcel below.
There are all kinds of issues from gTLDs, Access, ICT for Development, cyber security etc.
Call for hub registration - IGF 2011
If you are not able to attend the next IGF in Nairobi, Kenya, you can follow it remotely! Remote participation, and specifically the hubs structure, has been successful in previous IGF's in partnership between United Nations IGF Secretariat and the Remote Participation Working Group (RPWG). This time again - the Remote Participation Working Group will provide interactive channels for e-participation so you can follow the discussions from home; watch the webcast of the event ; and participate in live chat. Or you can also expand the discussions and organize an IGF hub in your city!
So what are the "Hubs?" The hubs are local meetings that take place in parallel with the IGF. People can watch the webcast together and send questions (via text or video) that will be answered by panelists in IGF. In addition, hub organizers can hold debates to discuss the themes introduced at the IGF from their 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; and it encourages follow-up activities. For your convenience, we have created a page to explain about remote hubs. Click here!
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 videoconference (or projector) equipment, to watch the webcast;
• A hub moderator, who will plan the dynamics of the local discussions as well as transmit the hub participants’ questions or comments to the IGF through the remote participation channels;
• A general call in lists, forums etc, to invite the interested local community.
If you are interested in setting up a local remote hub in your area, please click on link for the IGF HUB REGISTRATION and follow the instructions. There will also be an online training (to be announced soon) for hub organizers prior to the event.
What's more? Hub participants are also encouraged to send short pre-recorded video questions or statement (2-3 minutes), outlining key issues on the local discussion agenda. Hubs are also possibly allowed to join with real-time video message. Then the links to access each meeting room will be provided before the IGF. That's why have encouraged remote participants in the past to take a look at the IGF schedule (available soon) to check room assignments and session times they wished to follow.
During the IGF, you can also use social network platforms to take part in the Internet Governance dialogue:
• Share your views in Twitter: #IGF11
• Share your video in Youtube
• Share your pictures in Flickr
• Leave messages in Facebook
We hope you can join us this September for the IGF 2011 in Nairobi!
