TPRC is an annual conference on communications, information, and Internet policy that brings a diverse, international group of researchers from academia, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations together with policy makers. It serves two primary goals: (1) dissemination of current research relevant to current communications policy issues around the world; and (2) promotion of new research on emerging issues.
TPRC covers the full range of legal, economic, social, and technical issues on national and international information and communications policy, including: wireline and wireless telephony, radio and television broadcasting, cable- and satellite-delivered communication, Internet communication, technological convergence and its regulatory implications, intellectual property, electronic commerce, communications privacy and security, computer crime, and economic development. The breadth of coverage, connections between researchers and policy makers, and diversity of conference participants make TPRC unique. TPRC aims to remain the premier venue for innovative and influential communications policy research.
