The meeting will be held at the OECD Conference Centre, in Paris on 18-19 October 2012.

The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) is an influential research and policy-making body that sets international standards on a wide range of issues including communications technologies and the future of the Internet.
The OECD is comprised of 34 member countries including mostly developed nations but also emerging states such as Mexico, Chile and Turkey. It provides a forum for comparative policy discussions between governments that seek answers to common problems, identify best practices and encourage coordination between domestic and international policies.
