It is an event happening ON the Internet... not tied to any one physical location but rather bringing together thousands of people around the world in a global conversation.

You can join in from your home, office, or wherever you have connectivity. The meeting will be taking place in two different sessions:
- 7 July 2015 from 20:00 to 22:30 UTC
- 8 July 2015 from 06:00 to 08:30 UTC
(Use this time zone converter to find out what times these are for you!)
As the agenda shows, we'll have sessions on Internet access, governance and security - and a chance to interact with people on all of these issues.
Now, there are what we call "regional nodes" around the world where larger groups of people will be gathering together to have face-to-face conversations and to also join into the global conversation. If you are near one of those locations you are welcome to go to the meeting place there to meet other people in your region.
I'll actually be in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, at the node there... if you are in Ottawa I look forward to seeing you there!
I'm very much looking forward to this meeting in part because these issues are so critical... and also because InterCommunity 2015 is an experiment in doing a global meeting across the Internet - and that is to something we need to do more of! So I'm looking forward to seeing how it all works out!
Please do join with us over the next few days and be part of this conversation!
P.S. InterCommunity 2015 is a meeting of the members of the Internet Society, but if you are not already a member (membership is free) you can join as part of the registration process.
