The explosion in the use of broadband over the last 5 years has connected people, organizations, commercial firms, and government agencies throughout the world. The large number of devices connected to the networks has changed the Internet to a "network of things and computers". These trends, plus the rise of collaborative technologies, virtual worlds and tele-presence raise issues of privacy, management, compliance, governance, and risk.

The Internet of the Future is the theme of ISGIG 2009. Specifically, its goal is to improve communication among academics, regulators, compliance officers, business managers and IT managers by exposing problems, and uncovering potential problems, in the areas of privacy, compliance, governance, and risk. Each of these issues creates situations for both conflict and cooperation between different constituencies. This conference is an opportunity to advance models of effective management and collaboration.

The conference will rely on a judicious mix of research papers, invited speakers and structured discussions to extend the communities' communication and identify opportunities for mutually beneficial outcomes.
