The 2016 meeting of the Asia Pacific Regional Internet Governance Forum (APrIGF) will be held on 27-29 July at the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (NTUST) in Taipei. With the contribution from APrIGF community, the APrIGF MSG has decided on 'A New Internet Era – Merging Physical Space with Cyberspace' as the overarching theme for 2016 Taipei. The programme consists of three sessions: the pre-event meeting, the core conference, and the Youth IGF Camp.
APrIGF is one of the key regional initiatives on Internet governance. By adopting the multi-stakeholder approach as its core principle, APrIGF serves as a platform for discussion, exchange and collaboration at a regional level, and also where possible to aggregate national IGF discussions, ultimately advance the Internet governance development in the Asia Pacific region.
The APrIGF community has grown significantly since its initiation in 2010. The meeting now brings together over 300 multi-stakeholders from over 20 countries across the region each year to participate in advancing the Internet governance development.
