TPRC Presents
The 39th Research Conference on Communication, Information, and Internet Policy
Hosted by George Mason University Law School, Arlington, Virginia
Friday, September 23 through Sunday, September 25, 2011
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 the knowledge 
requirements of practitioners, and  engage in discussion on current policy 
issues. The conference program  consists of presentations selected from 
submitted paper abstracts,  student papers and panel submissions.
TPRC is now soliciting  abstracts of papers, panel proposals, and student papers 
for  presentation at the 2011 conference, to be held September 23-25, 2011 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, and may be from any  disciplinary 
perspective – the sole criterion is research quality.  Themes of particular 
interest include, but are not limited to:
1.       Network Competition
