The Australian National University is providing a free 'remote hub' in 
Canberra for the United Nations Internet Governance Forum, 3:00pm to 
7:30pm, 27 to 30 September 2011: 

The IGF Meeting is being held in Nairobi, Kenya, on the theme 'Internet 
as a catalyst for change': 

The ANU will have a video link to Nairobi for remote participation. Due 
to time zones, the ANU will only participate in the morning sessions of 
the conference (afternoon Canberra time). There will also be brief 
presentations on the theme of the meeting by local speakers in Canberra.
