WORKSHOP ON REGULATING THE EVOLVING BROADBAND ECOSYSTEM
AT FCC SEPTEMBER 10-12, 2014
Washington, D.C. – The University of Nebraska College of Law and the American Enterprise Institute’s
(AEI) Center for Internet, Communications, and Technology are co-sponsoring a by-invitation workshop
on the topic “Regulating the Evolving Broadband Ecosystem,” to be held at FCC headquarters on
September 10-12, 2014. The College of Law and AEI organized the workshop and selected (via a public
Call for Papers) the academic, government, and other experts who will present research “work-in-
progress” to their fellow participants for discussion and critique.
The workshop program will be available at:
with abstracts of
the papers posted by September 2, 2014. Slide presentations and/or draft manuscripts will be posted
immediately after the conference. The workshop will open with a public plenary session in the FCC
Meeting Room from 12:30-5:30 PM on Wednesday, September 10. In addition to three keynote
presentations (detailed in the program), senior FCC management will review some of the policy
challenges that the evolving broadband ecosystem poses.
The workshop will afford FCC staff an opportunity to learn about current academic research and to
highlight for the academics issues and questions that might be suitable for further research. The workshop
paper presentations and related discussions will take place in a small-group setting on Thursday and
Friday, September 11 and 12. Because space is limited, those wishing to observe these discussions should
contact the organizers at email@example.com by September 3, 2014. The organizers will notify them of
space availability by September 8, 2014.
In order to foster a candid discussion of work at an early stage of development, the workshop sessions
will be conducted under the “Chatham House Rule” (participants are free to use information received in
the meeting but may not reveal the identity or affiliation of any speaker or other participant), except to the
