The University of Colorado Law School and the Silicon Flatirons Center on Law, Technology and Entrepreneurship will host the “Digital Broadband Migration Conference: The Future of Internet-Enabled Innovation” on Feb. 10-11.

At this year’s conference, an impressive group of speakers will discuss the emerging changes in the Internet environment. In particular, the panelists will consider three policy dimensions that are increasingly receiving attention: interoperability and interconnection, Internet governance, and innovation and competition.
The keynote speakers at the conference are Randall L. Stephenson, chairman and chief executive officer, AT&T; Glenn A. Britt, chairman and CEO, Time Warner Cable Inc.; U.S. Congressman Cory Gardner; and Larry Strickling, assistant secretary for communications and information, National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA), U.S. Department of Commerce.
Other speakers and panelists include leaders from the Federal Communications Commission, Federal Trade Commission, Google, Level 3 Communications, Verizon, Walt Disney Company and Public Knowledge.
“As they confront challenging Internet policy issues, policymakers benefit greatly from the opportunity to discuss a changing environment with key thought leaders from industry, practice and nongovernmental organizations,” said Phil Weiser, dean of the Colorado Law School and executive director and founder of Silicon Flatirons. “At Silicon Flatirons, we work hard to attract top leaders and provide a trusted forum for this dialogue.”
