Colleagues (with apologies for cross-postings),

I am pleased to announce that proposals are now being accepted for scholarly
papers and panels for PTC'12, the 33rd annual conference of the Pacific
Telecommunications Council (www.ptc.org/).  The proposal deadline is July 5,
2011.  Scholarly papers on topics consistent with the theme of the program
are strongly encouraged.  All academic papers are peer-reviewed for
acceptance.  Last year the acceptance rate was about 40%.

Detailed information about PTC, the conference and the CFP can be found at:
http://www.ptc.org/ptc/sites/default/files/PTC12_CFP.pdf  The PTC membership
has a strong academic component which is active in a range of activities
with the organization.

The Conference will be held January 15-18 in Honolulu, HI.  The theme for
the program is: "Harnessing Disruption: Global, Mobile, Social, Local."  Any
proposal consistent with that theme will be considered.  Some examples of
recommended topics include:

*	Mobile Money
*	The power of social networks
*	The social and economic impacts of communications in the Pacific
*	Disruption in the Telecom sector
*	The national broadband network trend: policy and practice
*	Geo-location

There are cash awards for the best overall paper ($1,000 plus certificate)
and the best student paper ($500 and up to $1,000 in travel support).  There
is a special academic registration rate.  A selection of the best papers
will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of the journal
Telecommunications Policy.

Accepted papers will be notified by August 8.  To be considered for the best
paper award, final papers must be submitted by September 26.  All papers are
due no later than December 5.

Completed papers for the student paper competition must be submitted by
September 6.

While it is not necessary for paper submission and presentation, you are
also encouraged to consider becoming a member of PTC.  Individual faculty
memberships are $150 per year (https://registration.ptc.org/members/).  For
more information, see

Thank you.
