Mark your calendars! TPRC 2012: 40th Research Conference on
Communications, Internet and Information Policy will be held September
21-23, 2012 at George Mason University School of Law in Arlington, VA.
The call for papers for this year's conference will be available the
end of January. Abstract submissions will begin March 1 with a
deadline of March 31. Information concerning panel proposals,
demonstrations and the student paper contest will be included in the
call for papers.
TPRC is switching to the SSRN (the Social Sciences Research Network)
conference and archiving system this year. Abstracts and papers will
be submitted via SSRN, and accepted papers will be accessible in the
SSRN eLibrary. The TPRC archive of papers will also be migrating to
the SSRN eLibrary. This will provide wider visibility and better
searchability. The papers will be identified as TPRC conference
If you are concerned about SSRN listing of a paper that you presented
at TPRC, there are two options: (1) you may go to ssrn.com and mark
the paper as private, which will remove it from the publicly
searchable space, or (2) you may contact TPRC to have your paper
marked as private or remove it from the archive altogether.
As part of the process of moving our archive to SSRN, you will receive
a notification from SSRN when your archived paper has been uploaded.
We will be archiving from 2011 backwards and this may take several
months. Emails used to establish SSRN accounts for TPRC authors are
solely used in conjunction with TPRC.
