InterCommunity 2015, Internet Society’s first virtual meeting of our entire community, is being designed to celebrate the Internet’s ability to rise beyond boundaries and bring people together.

For all ISOC members (and guests) in Switzerland there is a unique chance to attend this happening together with other ISOC members either in Geneva or Zurich. In addition we offer interesting Add-On sessions on privacy and surveillance at both locations including breakfast and lunch. From Switzerland National Councilor (Nationalrat) Balthasar Glättli will provide us with an update on the latest proposals for new surveillance acts in Switzerland (BÜPF and NDG) that are heavily debated in the current parliamentary session.
