ISOC-CH is participating in the celebration of ISOC’s 25th anniversary and is co-hosting a special half-day event at CERN Globe on 19 September. To mark the anniversary via the Intercommunity Forum (ICOMM), we teamed up with ISOC to organise a ‘celebration node’, which will include a live session broadcasted around the world. 

 We invite you to contribute to the discussions and join us to raise a glass for Internet Society’s 25th anniversary. Please mark your calendars for this celebration.

 Due to space constraints, the number of places for this event is limited. We will be opening the registration on a first-come, first-served basis. A formal invitation will be issued shortly.
