approximately 120 high-level participants are expected at this Conference. Some of the participants
             will be invited to form the core part of this Conference in the role of Moderators, Presenters and
             Commentators, in the various sessions of the Conference.

             EXPECTED OUTCOMES


                 1.  It is expected that the Conference will result in increased awareness about the importance of
                     cybersecurity in the context of regional peace and conflict management.
                 2.  It is also hoped that the discussions during the Conference could help support the on-going
                     activities by existing ASEAN frameworks, platforms, bodies, mechanisms and ASEAN Member
                     States in their efforts toward creating and coordinating cybersecurity policy, diplomacy,
                     cooperation, technical and capacity building among various platforms of the three pillars of
                     ASEAN, especially in relation to regional peace and conflict management.
                 3.  In addition, it is expected that the discussions at the Conference will be able to help provide
                     support to the on-going activities of relevant ASEAN frameworks, platforms, bodies and
                     mechanisms, towards identifying a proposed concrete list of voluntary, practical norms of
                     State behavior on cyberspace, especially in relation to regional peace and stability, that
                     ASEAN can consider working towards adopting and implementing.

                 4.  It is also expected that the Conference will be able to help contribute to efforts of ASEAN
                     to enhance its cooperation and collaboration with the international community in the area
                     of cybersecurity and non-traditional security issues, especially in aspects which are directly
                     relevant to regional and international peace and conflict management.

                 5.  It is expected that the Conference would serve as a vehicle whereby ASEAN Member
                     Countries could promote closer functional relations with Dialogue Partners, businesses, the
                     Civil Society community and all interested parties, especially in the area of cybersecurity.
