Thank You Message from the Director

Dear Conference Participants,

On behalf of the Citizen Lab and Canada Centre for Global Security Studies at the Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto, we would like to thank you for your participation in the Cyber Dialogue Conference on 18-19 March 2012.

We hope you felt, as we did, that this latest discussion on “What is Stewardship in Cyberspace?” provided a useful thematic focus for this year, and a good continuation of the theme from last year’s Cyber Dialogue on “Securing the Cyber Commons“. We very much hope that the collective contributions will stimulate constructive debate and help shape public policies in this field.

With over 100 participants from more than 10 countries in attendance, we are very aware that we were unable to engage everyone in in-depth discussions. Nonetheless, we hope that you were able to establish links with other cyber scholars, activists and practitioners as well as engage with the challenging issues that were presented at the conference.

We are continuing to edit and publish the Stewardship Paper Series (part one and two) and the briefs undertaken by Camino Kavanagh. We intend to find a way to publish these beyond posting on the website and look forward to any suggestions that you may have in that regard.

We are currently accumulating comments from a cross-section of conference attendees and would like to invite you to fill out a short survey. You may also share any further reflections in writing to We have some ideas of our own for how #CD13 might be even better. Stay tuned for more.

In order to keep this dialogue alive, we also welcome those who would like to take the opportunity to contribute lengthier inputs of a substantive nature, which we can edit and layout for publication on the website. If you would like to discuss such a contribution, please contact me at and I would be happy to discuss in more detail.

We will keep you notified of our activities, but also hope you will continue to stay engaged with the Citizen Lab and Canada Centre for Global Security Studies by sharing your work or informing us of innovative approaches to stewardship and how it relates to cyberspace.

Thank you again for your involvement in the Cyber Dialogue conference.

Ron Deibert
