Content Guidelines (click here)

The participants of AIS include ISPs and Network and Connectivity providers, to whom we can reach out to, and encourage participation in the ICANN Meetings and in the ISPCP Constituency.

Preliminary discussions are being held with ICANN regional staff, to see how the ISPCP could present for 15 to 20 minutes during the ICANN Day, scheduled for May 5th, and potentially the following days as well.  In addition to the presentation, the ISPCP will discuss ways they can broaden their outreach for the event. Brochures and outreach will also be conducted through networking opportunities, and 1:1 meetings.

The purpose of this trip is to strengthen the ISPCP regional membership within Africa, and to increase awareness of the ISPCP's work within the ICANN Community.

12) Additional Information (optional):

ABOUT AIS: "The Africa Internet Summit (AIS) is an annual, regional, multi-stakeholder ICT conference. It is the pinnacle educational and business ICT event in Africa where key players in the Internet industry can interact with the global Internet community. Launched in The Gambia in 2012, the Summit consists of seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, birds-of-a-feather (BOFs), and other forums for sharing ICT knowledge within the African region.
