Don't miss the Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee's State of the Net Conference -- now the largest technology policy conference in DC, attracting over 500 attendees in 2007. The only conference with a balanced blend of academics, consumer groups, industry and government (over 50% of 2007 attendees were government policy staff).
Perennially the State of the Net Conference brings technology and the Internet to the forefront of debate on Capitol Hill. Now in its fourth year, this annual full-day conference has become the premier forum to discuss technology trends and the disruptive challenges facing lawmakers, industry leaders, and consumers.
The State of the Net Conference offers attendees unparalleled opportunities to network and dialogue on key policy issues. Participate in lively debates exploring privacy/security, telecom-munications regulation, intellectual property and innovation, youth online safety, Internet governance and more.
Located on Capitol Hill and drawing strong participation from government officials and industry leaders, the Conference is the perfect setting to connect with stakeholders in the Internet's growth and development. With such a critical mass of decision-makers, this is an event not to be missed.
Immediately following the conclusion of the conference, join the Internet Caucus Advisory Committee for the longest running technology policy exhibition event in Washington -- the 11th Annual Kickoff Technology Policy Exhibition. This event will highlight some of the key policy issues facing the 110th Congress. Attendees will witness hands-on demonstrations of the latest technologies in kid's safety, RFID, wireless, e-health, white space devices, consumer electronics and more, which help to illuminate the debates and possible solutions.
