Communication Policy Research south (CPRsouth) 2007

I'll be in Manila from January 18 to 21 to attend the "Communication Policy Research south (CPRsouth) 2007: Research for Improving ICT governance in the Asia-Pacific Conference." It'll be held at the Asian Institute of Management Conference Center.

From the invitation:
The conference shall form part of the inaugural events of the CPRsouth, a project led by LIRNEAsia, which aims to build world-class human capacity for improving information and communication technology (ICT) governance in the Asia-Pacific. The conference intends to provide a foundational knowledge for scholars working on ICT policy and regulation in the region and help build a network among them.

The guiding principle of the Conference is to encourage communication and discussion of ideas at the frontiers of research on ICT policy and regulatory reform. We are putting together a program that will fulfill this goal with an outstanding collection of speakers and discussants on ICT governance from all over the Asia-Pacific.
