     The 47th Research Conference on Communications, Information, and Internet Policy

    TPRC is an annual cross-disciplinary conference on communications, information, and Internet policy that convenes researchers and policymakers from law, economics, engineering, computer science, public policy and related fields working in academia, industry, government, and nonprofit organizations around the world. 

    TPRC is seeking submissions for its 47th conference, including papers, posters, panels, a Student Paper Competition, the Graduate Student Consortium, and the Charles Benton Early Career Scholar Award.

    Proposals can be submitted at https://www.tprcweb.com/through March 15 (proposals for student tracks are due April 30).

    Papers & Posters: Submit an abstract of research in progress or recently completed and present the completed paper in a conference session or as a poster.  The presentation format is best for work that has been completed, whereas posters are ideal for feedback on work-in-progress and completed work where detailed feedback and engagement is desired.  Posters will be prominently displayed and provide an opportunity to discuss your research in detail with conference attendees. 

    Panels: Propose a panel discussion of a relevant topic. If your proposal is selected, you will be asked to organize the panel. Panel specific information can be found here.

    Student Paper Competition and Graduate Student Consortium: In addition to the regular conference proposals, students may also submit papers to the student paper contest and/or participate in the Graduate Student Consortium (GSC). The Student Paper Contest winners receive cash prizes, and GSC participants receive unique mentorship and networking opportunities. Both receive complimentary registration in TPRC47. Mentors are also sought for the GSC. Student program specific information can be found here.
