IEEE launches Internet Policy Letters

The world’s largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), has launched the inaugural issue of IEEE Internet Policy Letters, reports ITRealms.

Chairman of the IEEE Internet Initiative, Oleg Logvinov, said at the launch that IEEE took this project to connect the world of technical and policymaking communities for Internet Governance, cybersecurity and privacy in order to inform, debate and facilitate adequate decision making.

These, he said, are aimed at helping to ensure trustworthy technology solutions and best practices and to successfully address fundamentally new technology policy challenges.

“The IEEE Internet Initiative has established a neutral platform for meaningful dialogue to take place as Internet technologies and policies evolve and progress. This is what IEEE does so uniquely well: bringing technology and policy experts together around the table in open, balanced collaboration and extending local conversations to the global stage,” he said.

Logvinov also said the bi-monthly, Internet technology policy focused online publication aims at fostering an intellectual exchange of ideas between the world’s top subject matter experts, researchers and practitioners in the areas of Internet governance, cybersecurity, privacy and universal Internet access globally, regionally and locally.

Thus, he said, the IEEE Internet Initiative invites authors to contribute and receive recognition in the publication, urging potential authors to submit an article via emailing the managing editor.

The inaugural issue featured some of the following articles:
· "What We Are Doing, Why We Are Doing It" by Oleg Logvinov, IEEE Internet Initiative
· "To Change the Future, We’ll Team Up - Globally!" by Mei Lin Fung, People Centered Internet and Karen McCabe, IEEE.

Others are "Global Connect: Digital Ecosystem Architecture" by Susan Hyon Parker, Carnegie Mellon Open Learning; "Connectivity Can’t Unlock the Internet’s Promise Without Human Rights" by Peter Micek, Access Now and Carolina Rossini, Public Knowledge.
