After broadening its reach in 2012 to address rapidly evolving legal, policy, and social concerns related to Internet culture and the Academy, the former Cornell University Institute for Computer Policy and Law has been renamed the Cornell University Institute for Internet Culture, Policy, and Law (ICPL). It remains the "go-to" conference for information technology policy and law in higher education. The number of participants is limited to 50, allowing for meaningful, in-depth exploration of topics.
The topic for the 2013 ICPL is privacy and accessibility. We are in the process of confirming keynote speakers and will post the program as soon as it is finalized.
More dynamic format
As last year, ICPL will remain dynamic and interactive. Keynote presentations will set the tone for follow-up facilitated discussions. Our facilitators will bring critical perspectives grounded in their experience and expertise to the keynote presentations and then foster active discussion with participants.
Historically an intimate intellectual environment, this year's ICPL will intensify the experience. There are no concurrent or breakout sessions; everyone—speakers, facilitators, organizers, and participants—will stay together for all sessions and activities.
Generous breaks between sessions will allow for immediate follow-up conversations.
Who should attend
Faculty, university administrators, academic librarians, and IT, legal, policy, and student life professionals are invited to debate, learn, and share ideas, experiences, and expertise during ICPL's three knowledge-packed days.
Scheduled for September 18–20 on the Cornell campus in the beautiful Finger Lakes region, the 2013 institute aims to be the nation's premier forum for incisive and innovative thinking about today's rapidly changing Internet culture and the issues of privacy and accessibility.
