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

space availability by September 8, 2014.
