FCC to Cosponsor Workshop Regarding the Future of Broadband Regulation


The FCC, with Pennsylvania State University’s Institute for Information Policy (IPP), will hold a by-invitation workshop on the Future of Broadband Regulation at Commission headquarters on May 29-30, 2014.  IPP has organized the workshop and, via a public Call for Papers, selected the academic and government experts who will present their research to workshop participants.  The workshop program and abstracts of the papers to be presented will be available here starting on May 22, 2014.  The workshop will open with a public plenary session in the FCC Meeting Room from 8:45-10:00 AM on Thursday, May 29, 2014.  In this session, senior FCC management and other representatives will review some of the policy challenges that the transition to a ubiquitous IP-based broadband network poses.  The workshop paper presentations will be made in a small-group format.  Although space is quite limited, those wishing to observe the academic discussions will be accommodated on a space available basis.  Interested parties should contact workshop organizers at mpennstateiip@psu.edu by May 20, 2014 and will be notified of space availability by May 22, 2014.
