The Youth Observatory (SIG Youth of the Internet Society) is pleased to announce the selected articles for the book "Analysis of a Connected Youth". The call for papers was closed at the end of February and proposed to cover different discussions in the scope of Internet Governance from the perspective of young people up to 35 years,.

A total of 35 articles were received from 9 different countries, dealing with topics such as cybersecurity, innovation, digital rights and gender. Our expectations were more than achieved: we received very different materials, in formats and approaches, which showed that youth have much to talk about when it comes to discussing the relations between technology, the Internet and society today.

The articles were submitted to double or triple blind evaluation of members of the Editorial Committee and volunteers of the Observatory from different areas of study and professional roles. Criteria of relevance, originality, structure, depth and coherence of materials were considered. In total, 19 were selected, written in Spanish (11), Portuguese (5) and English (3), with authors coming from Argentina, Colombia, Brazil and Mexico. Women sign 13 of the articles, and men, 6. The age group of the selected is broad, from 21 to 33 years.

The book's edition is now in its final phase. The Editorial Committee will contact each selected author in the next few days. Unselected authors who wish to receive feedback from their article can contact the Observatory. Our goal is to launch the book officially at the next YouthLACIGF, held in Panama in August, as a preparatory meeting for the Internet Governance Forum of 2017. The edition will be trilingual (Spanish, Portuguese and English), available online and on open license.

Thank you so much to all the people who submitted articles and supported our project! There's a lot of news coming around! Unselected authors are encouraged to continue the incredible work of thinking and discussing Internet Governance in their communities. To all those registered, the invitation to also be part of the Observatory! Diversity, plurality of ideas and formations and empowerment are part of our ideals!
