*Assunto:* RightsCon Brussels -- Important Notification
Dear Program Session Organizer,
Thank you very much for your submission to host a session at *RightsCon
Brussels* <https://www.rightscon.org/> (March 29 - 31, 2017).
The Program Committee has reviewed your proposal, and I’m very pleased to
inform you that your session has been accepted in the program! You should
be really pleased, as there was intense competition with more than 400
proposals from around the world for only a limited number of spaces.
*This is an initial notification so that you can commence your planning
and logistics for the conference*. Next week you will receive another
notification that will provide additional details on your specific session,
including recommendations from our program committee.
If you require a personalized invitation letter to RightsCon for
obtaining Schengen visa, please fill out our visa letter request form
and we will send you the corresponding letter. Also, please familiarize
yourself with our Travel and Visa document
and find some visa-related tips here
As RightsCon Brussels is being held in the Crowne Plaza Hotel, we've
negotiated special room rates for RightsCon participants! To make a
reservation, please use the reservation portal here
We've also assembled a map of recommended hotels in proximity to the
Crowne Plaza, which you can find here
We're absolutely committed to ensuring that everyone can participate, but
due to the nature of this conference, in which a high proportion of people
attending are speaking or session hosts, we are asking that those with the
means to do so pay for tickets <https://www.rightscon.org/#tickets>.
This allows us to fund activists and advocates from around the world.
In our followup email next week, we will be providing you with some
discount code options, as to ensure that the ticket price does not prohibit
your participation (or your speakers' participation) at RightsCon. We will
also be extending the early bird pricing deadline.
If you have any questions please let us know, and we look forward to
working with you!

This aweeesome Luca, I'm working side to side with Nicolas Pace on the
alliance of the University of Guadalajara and local communities to built a
pilot community network... things are looking very good and we will
probably have an outcome by February, and I think this is a very
interesting case of sustainable expansion of connectivity.
Let me know how we can help.

I submitted a RightsCon proposal but I didn’t have time to crowdsource
the proposal through the DC3 list (I remembered about the call for
proposals on the 4th and the deadline was the 5th )
The proposal is below. Should it be approved, I will be very happy to
involve DC3 members in the session.
All the best
*Sustainable Connectivity : Expanding Infrastructure and Empowering
According to ITU figures, 4 billion people are still unconnected to the
Internet. Digital divides are particularly sharp with regard to rural
communities and low-income populations. Internet access is today’s most
democratic and cost-effective means to gain education, work, and express
one’s opinion. Inclusion of all individuals helps society go forward This
session aims at exploring different strategies that could be elaborated and
implemented to expand connectivity in a sustainable and inclusive world.
The session will adopt a critical approach in order to analyse three main
categories of strategies that have been experimented so far to expand
connectivity. The categorisation is based on the stakeholders that are at
the origin and that lead the implementation of the connectivity strategies.
Notably, the panellists will debate the pros and cons of a variety of
initiatives whose stated purpose is to connect the unconnected, such as:
* State-driven initiatives, e.g. public investments and universal access
* Business-driven initiatives, including traditional operator-led
strategies and recent platform-led strategies, such as zero-rating plans;
* Community-driven initiatives e.g. community networks.
During the first segment of the session, the panellists will provide
short and punchy presentations. During the second segments, the speakers
will engage in a dynamic discussion with the workshop participants, trying
to put forward recommendations for sustainable expansion of connectivity.

If we didn't make one, it's too late now. The deadline was on the 5th.

about our topics in the Rightscon conference in Brussels. How is that?
