Concise Description of Workshop: 

The proposed workshop shall look at the various issues pertaining to use of communication devices, mobile phones, cell phones, tablets, iPhones and other mobile devices which are being increasingly used for the purposes of accessing the Internet and legalities concerning the same, and how the said legalities impact Internet governance. Today, increasingly the world is looking at the mobile Internet. As per existing projections, the number of devices that will access the Internet using mobility will become far more than fixed line devices. As such, mobile law plays an increasingly important role in the growth of future jurisprudence in this regard. Mobile law is the next big discipline of law that is likely to become extremely important in the times to come, given the steady rapid growth of mobile adoption across the world. How does mobile law impact Internet governance? Can Internet governance be benefited by the provisions of mobile law? How can mobile law enable Internet governance for attaining the goal of sustainable human economic and social development? How can increased use of mobiles in countries like China and India be used as a platform for further promoting the growth of Internet governance and also for further promoting sustainable human economic and social development?
