2015 TPRC | 43rd Research Conference on Communications, Information and Internet Policy

George Mason University School of Law, Arlington, VA

WHY TPRC?

Krishna Jayakar, Pennsylvania State UniversityKrishna Jayakar of Pennsylvania State University has presented multiple papers at TPRC, including research on broadband adoption for people with disabilities that went on to reach policy audiences around the globe. Jayakar says he’s a “big fan” of the conference, which “attracts a wider and broader perspective than any other. It's great to get feedback from industry and policymakers as well as other scholars,” he continues, “and TPRC has a real international dimension. "

Jon Peha, Carnegie Mellon University Barbara Cherry, Indiana University Jon Peha of Carnegie Mellon University and Barbara Cherry of the Media School at Indiana University met at TPRC and collaborated on a paper that influenced the FCC's recent Net Neutrality ruling. The conference provided an opportunity for us to “bridge differing perspectives to make a policy recommendation,” says Cherry. Adds Peha, “it’s the only conference that regularly brings together thought leaders with a shared interest in technology policy but very different perspectives.”
