Internet Policy, is an annual conference on communication, information
and internet policy that convenes international and interdisciplinary
researchers and policymakers from academia, industry, government, and
nonprofit organizations. Its purpose is to present original research
relevant to policy making, share information about areas where
research is needed, and engage in discussion on current policy issues.
The conference program consists of presentations selected from
submitted paper abstracts, student papers, and proposals for panels,
tutorials, and demonstrations.
TPRC is now soliciting abstracts of papers, proposals for panels,
tutorials and demonstrations, and student papers for presentation at
the 2012 conference, to be held September 21-23, 2012 at the George
Mason University Law School , in Arlington , Virginia . These
presentations should report current theoretical or empirical research
relevant to communication and information policy.
Contributions may be from any disciplinary perspective – the sole
criterion is research quality. Topic areas in previous conferences
have included competition, antitrust, and other market issues;
broadband deployment and adoption; spectrum and wireless application
policy; media, old and new; intellectual property, technology, and
Internet law; privacy, security, identity and trust; governance and
institutions; innovation and entrepreneurship; and distributional
outcomes and social goals.
