Dear Sir or Madam,

NEWS RELEASE: United Nations Internet Governance Forum in Berlin: DENIC
Information Platform IG Radar Explains Internet Governance Processes

· Germany hosts the United Nations' Internet Governance Forum (IGF)
from 25 to 29 November 2019.
· The venue of the conference, which is open to the general public,
will be the Estrel Congress Center in Berlin.
· DENIC, the manager of the Top-Level Domain .de, will be exhibiting at
the IFG 2019 and offers those interested in the topic basic and background
information at the online information platform Internet Governance

For the first time in the IGF history, Germany will be hosting the Annual
Meeting of the United Nations' Internet Governance Forum this year. [2]
Under the overarching theme 'One World. One Net. One Vision.' several
thousand delegates of governments and international organisations will come
together from all parts of the world with international representatives from
the private sector, academia, the technical sector and civil society.
From 25 to 29 November they will conduct the IGF's 14th annual dialogue about
rules, values and standards for the Internet of the presence and the
future on an equal footing in the German capital of Berlin.

A comprehensive program [3] will be offered at the five conference days with
sessions, discussions and workshops that will focus on three priority
themes: Data management and data protection (Data Governance) – general
access to and participation in digitisation and its shaping on an equal
footing (Digital Inclusion) – protection of people, resources and
infrastructures in the digital age (Security & Safety, Stability &
Resilience). A
secondary focus will be on opportunities and potential involvement of SMEs in
Internet governance. The Internet Governance Forum will be officially
opened by the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Dr. António Guterres,
and German Chancellor, Dr. Angela Merkel, on Tuesday, 26 November 2019 at
14:00 CET.

DENIC's information platform IG Radar: understanding and following up on
Internet governance processes

Under the motto "Internet Governance Matters to Everyone!", DENIC as a member
of the advisory board of the Internet Governance Forum Germany (IGF-D,
[4]) has committed itself in the year of the IGF in Berlin to introducing the
Internet governance ecosystem with its multiple thematic strands and
interrelations to the interested wider public in Germany and abroad. A
compact three-part feature series on Internet governance on the DENIC website
offers first, low-threshold access to the theme: #1: IGF 2019 in Berlin: Join
In and Have a Say! [5], #2: Internet Governance Matters to Everyone! [6]
, #3: Our Contribution to a Secure Internet for All [7].

But this is not all: Even though virtually everybody involved in digital
policy matters is currently talking about Internet governance, until recently
there was no online offer available in German that provides newcomers and
advanced users alike with comprehensive basic knowledge and in-depth
background information on topics, players and new developments in a compact
format that is kept regularly up-to-date.

This gap has been closed by the German/English Internet Governance Radar [8],
an online information platform offered by DENIC eG [9]. Being the
manager of the technical infrastructure of the German namespace on the
Internet, the DENIC Cooperative ensures that websites and web services ending
with the country code .de are available around the clock, safely, securely
and reliably. On average, DENIC manages access to domain names more than
six billion times every day.

DENIC's Internet Governance Radar platform is also the only German-language
source of reference recommended on the official IGF event website hosted
by the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Energy [10].

DENIC@IGF 2019: Communicating with the world

Moreover, DENIC will host an information booth, which will be open on all
conference days, in the exhibition area of the Internet Governance Forum,
called the IGF 2019 Village. Here, DENIC will inform visitors about the
Cooperative's manifold Internet governance activities in general and about the
Internet Governance Radar platform in particular (Estrel Congress Center,
Foyer 1, Booth 11) [11]. Moreover DENIC CEO Dr Jörg Schweiger will discuss
at a podium made up of prominent experts including Internet pioneer Vint Cerf
under the title ‘NETmundial+5: The Legacy and Implications for Future
Internet Governance‘ diskutieren (Pre-Event 32: Day Zero, 25 November 2019,
13:05 – 15:05 CET, Room V) [12].

We are looking forward to your visit – be it virtual or in person.
