Call for Paper Proposals

“Theory of Broadband: Regulation, Networks and Applications”

A by-invitation Experts’ Workshop to be held at The Columbia Institute for Tele-Information, Columbia University
New York, NY, May 30-June 1, 2013

As broadband becomes the dominant technology over which all media and telecommunications services are delivered, the traditional differences between content and conduit, mass media and interpersonal communications, and mobile and fixed uses made of technology are blurred. This has been observed and discussed for a while but theoretical dimensions on how technology changes regulatory, societal and economic structures have lagged. As we are moving to an entirely new generation of media, new academic approaches are needed to guide networks, users, content providers, and policy makers, This calls for analysis and new conceptual and methodological models.

The Institute for Information Policy at Penn State University (IIP), and the Columbia Institute for Tele-Information (CITI) are pleased to announce this call for paper proposals in which “Theory of Broadband: Regulation, Networks and Applications” serves as the main theme. Authors of selected papers will be invited to present them during a two day by-invitation workshop designed to bring together up to a dozen experts and to be held at Columbia University in New York, NY. This Workshop is one of a series of events on “Making Policy Research Accessible,” organized by the IIP, with the support of the Ford Foundation and the Media Democracy Fund. Presenters at the workshop will be invited to submit their completed papers for review by the Journal of Information Policy (www.jip-online.org).

We seek papers that focus on the next generation of issues. All disciplines are welcome. Invited topics include, but are not limited to:
· Theories of broadband networking and/or regulation and regulatory principles

· Models of transition to the new broadband marketplace

· The role of the FCC and other regulatory agencies in consumer protection, competition policy and merger oversight in the broadband economy

· Valuation and regulation of spectrum in the broadband environment

· Access as a social and economic goal in a converged technological environment
