IEEE has been organizing local conversations to connect technologists, policy makers, industry, civil society and others engaged in technology and industry domains globally to advance solutions for the Internet-related challenges we face today. The Open Forum will share insights from conversations for use by stakeholders to enable inclusive and sustainable growth. It will focus on issues of Internet access and affordability for social inclusion and economic growth, and privacy and security. While economic growth and societal good have resulted from the Internet, the benefit to humanity yet to be realized is even greater. In addition to opportunities in new services, improved productivity, real-time decision-making and new business models, the drive toward universal connectivity, the rise of IoT and the adaptation of ICTs in new industries, are bringing to the forefront a complex set of issues.
