Kathmandu, Nepal as Local Host

This year we are happy to have Nepal, as the official host of APrIGF 2021. The conference will be held in Kathmandu organized by Internet Governance Institute, Nepal Internet Foundation, Internet Society Nepal and NPIX, supported by APrIGF Secretariat – DotAsia. This provides a physical platform and venue for people in the region able to travel to Kathmandu, to attend and gather physically, while others can also participate virtually.

Local Hubs

We welcome the participation of local hubs which, by definition, will be self-organized and self-supported local meetings that take place in parallel with the APrIGF sessions. Hub organizers are expected to stimulate discussions at the national and sub-national levels by promoting local points of presence (hubs) where small audiences will, where possible, enjoy an opportunity to be physically present throughout the event. Further details on how to host a APrIGF 2021 local hub will be announced shortly.

Online Participation

Since the pandemic, online participation has been an important part of any conferences. We will be using Zoom as our main platform for sessions, and also offer live streaming on other platforms like Youtube, etc.. Registration will be required for all on-site or online participants. Register here now!
