The Conference on Convergence and Connectivity 2008: Broadband, Wireless and Mobile

Although the United States is one of the world's most "wired" countries, emerging development in East Asia and Western Europe indicates that much of the developed world has caught up and, indeed, many nations are now surpassing the United States in adoption and deployment of innovative information technology (IT) services for government, industry and the individual.

The Conference on Convergence and Connectivity 2008: Broadband, Wireless and Mobile (CCC 2008) brings together the best available input from industry, government and academia to develop a vision for digitally connected communities with an emphasis upon the applications and services delivered to public, private and individual users. By gathering leaders from different fields in a neutral setting, we hope to address opportunities created by digital communications technologies, as well as to develop guidance of values in a long-term strategy for future innovations.


This event is supported by the Fondren Library and Ken Kennedy Institute for Information Technology.
