For the second year, Time Warner Cable is sponsoring a research program on digital communications. Scott Wallsten was asked to write an essay for the 2010 program, which was published by both TWC and in the Federal Communications Law Journal. Other authors from last year’s collection include John Palfrey, Dale Hatfield, Nicol Turner-Lee, and Christopher Yoo.
Time Warner Cable has announced the second year of its Research Program on Digital Communications, which awards stipends designed to foster research dedicated to increasing understanding of the benefits and challenges facing the future of digital technologies in the home, office, classroom and community. The 2011 Research Announcement sets forth the program’s guidelines and the list of research questions. Researchers affiliated with universities and not-for-profits are eligible to apply for the stipends. Applicants are asked to write a three page summary outlining their approach to one of the topics and to submit a brief resume for each author. Multidisciplinary teams are encouraged, to provide the broadest possible insights. More information can be found at the research program website or by following http://twitter.com/TWC_RP. The deadlines for submission of applications are April 1, 2011 and November 1, 2011.
