Technology Policy Institute Aspen Forum
2016 and Beyond: Technology Policy Challenges
August 21 – 23, 2016
The next administration will face difficult policy choices that will affect the pace and direction of innovation. How might a new administration think differently about issues as diverse as the future of connectivity, the tradeoff between privacy and security, incentives to invest in new infrastructure, technologies and content, and how to coordinate policies with our global partners? Would such changes be better for consumers and for economic growth generally? Speakers at the 2016 TPI Aspen Forum will look ahead to the critically important policy debates that will take place over the coming years.
The TPI Aspen Forum brings together leaders from business, government and academia to discuss and debate the key public policy issues affecting information and communications technology. Online registration is now open and a discounted registration price is available for industry and trade association attendees until July 1.

Cohen; and YouTube Vice President Kelly Merryman.
