"The Robert S. Strauss Center for International Security and Law invites you to Internet Policy for the Next Administration with Marc Rotenberg, Executive Director, Electronic Privacy Information Center, and Howard Shelanski, Director, Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, on April 21, 2008, at 5:00 pm in the LBJ Library Atrium, 10th Floor. Refreshments will be served.

The next President’s policy team will have the opportunity to shape a significant debate on the future development of what is clearly already becoming the United States’ primary social and economic infrastructure. This forum will bring two prominent members of the Internet policy community to Austin to discuss two major policy areas posing fundamental choices for the United States and its Internet infrastructure in an increasingly competitive global environment.

After remarks from Professor Shelanski on broadband policy and Mr. Rotenberg on security and privacy policy, three local technology leaders will participate in a panel discussion. Michael Braithewaite of Netstreams, Carolyn Purcell of Cisco Systems, and Ian Clark of Thoof, Inc., will comment on issues raised by the speakers.

Marc Rotenberg is Executive Director of the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) in Washington, DC. He teaches information privacy law at Georgetown University Law Center and has testified before Congress on many issues, including access to information, encryption policy, consumer protection, computer security, and communications privacy. He testified before the 9-11 Commission on "Security and Liberty: Protecting Privacy, Preventing Terrorism."

Howard Shelanski is a Faculty Director of the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology and a Professor of Law whose principal area of expertise is telecommunications law and policy and antitrust. He is a former Chief Economist at the Federal Communications Commission.

This presentation is part of the Strauss Center's Technology, Innovation, and Global Security “Global Challenges to National Innovation Systems” policy forum series, which brings world-renowned experts to campus to discuss major innovation policy issues with the Austin technology and policy communities."
