The fourth annual conference DIDS 2013, dedicated to the development of Internet in the world and in national .RS and .СРБ domain spaces, was held on 18 April in Belgrade’s hotel „Moskva“ . This year’s Serbian Internet Domain Names Day was attended by 20 participants from Serbia and abroad and more than 180 guests and journalists from 28 media companies and agencies.
As always, the Program of DIDS was divided into three sections and proceeded in the form of presentations, lectures and panel discussions.
DIDS 2013 was open to all the guests free of charge; however, since this event is intended primarily for the users of national Internet domains, only those who possessed е-mail addresses ending with .RS or .СРБ were able to register and attend the conference.
In cooperation with its media sponsors, RNIDS provided a live video streaming of the conference on seven Internet locations (including the websites of the national televisions RTS and B-92 and newspaper Blic). DIDS 2013 had a total of 21 media sponsors and the event was mentioned in the media 116 times: 77 news items appeared on the Internet, 8 on television, 8 on the radio, and 23 in the printed media (13 articles and 10 ads).
DIDS 2013 was prepared and organized by: Predrag Milićević, Dragana Pešić – Lević, Lazar Bošković, Miloje Sekulić, Vladimir Radunović, Dragana Vukajlović – Krstović, Aleksandar Kostadinović, Jovana Cvetković and their associates.
Program DIDS 2013
Whom did Vint Cerf and Bob Kahn, Larry Page and Sergey Brin, or Mark Zuckerberg ask whether or not they were allowed to invent TCP/IP, Google and Facebook? In today’s world, are the same principles important for the success of new services and freedom on the Internet: development at the ends of the network and oppenness dictated by the market instead of regulation? Are these principles even relistic in today’s Internet world of almost two billion inhabitants that is full of distrust, cyber-attacks, censorship and violations of privacy? To which extent are our safety and the safety of our surroundings jeopardized in cyber space, how, and why? Does this make us wish for other rules of the game – including strict legal regulation, and would this regulation threaten those proven principles of development? Who, and how, can establish national policies that will supplement the regulatory framework with other forms of strengthening of institutions and users (education, raising of awareness, technology, organizational policies) without endangering freedom and development? What do Europe and Serbia think about these issues?
