TPRC is an annual conference on communication, information and Internet policy that convenes international and interdisciplinary researchers and policymakers from academia, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations. Its purpose is to present original research relevant to policy making, share information about areas where research is needed, and engage in discussion on current policy issues. The conference program consists of presentations selected from submitted paper abstracts, student papers, and proposals for panels, tutorials, and demonstrations.

TPRC is now soliciting abstracts of papers, proposals for panels, tutorials and demonstrations, and student papers for presentation at the conference, to be held September 27-29, 2013 at the George Mason University Law School, in Arlington, Virginia. These presentations should report current theoretical or empirical research relevant to communication and information policy.

Contributions may be from any disciplinary perspective – the sole criterion is research quality. Topic areas in previous conferences have included competition, antitrust, and other market issues; broadband deployment and adoption; spectrum and wireless application policy; media, old and new; intellectual property, technology, and internet law; privacy, security, identity and trust; governance and institutions; innovation and entrepreneurship; and distributional outcomes and social goals.

The deadlines are:

March 31, 2013: Main conference abstracts, and proposals for panels, tutorials, and demonstrations. Acceptances/rejections will be provided by May 31, 2013. Complete papers for accepted abstracts will be due to TPRC on August 15, 2013.

April 30, 2013: Student papers. The student paper competition requires submission of completed papers rather than abstracts. Acceptances and rejections will be provided by June 30, 2013.
