2012 ITAC Meeting

On 23 October 2012, the Internet Technical Advisory Committee to the OECD (ITAC) convened for its second annual meeting in Paris, on the margins of the OECD 64th ICCP Session.

ITAC brings together the counsel and expertise of technically focused organizations in a decentralized and networked approach to policy formulation for the Internet economy.

Since 2009, ITAC membership has grown to count 25 active organizations situated in various areas of the Internet community, providing expertise in fields such as privacy, identity or IP interconnection.

Several participants from the following organizations attended the meeting:

  • IEEE
  • ISOC
  • W3C
  • Representatives from the Business and Industry Advisory Committee to the OECD (BIAC)
  • Representative form the Civil Society Advisory Committee to the OECD (CSISAC)
