The State of the Net Conference, now in its fourth year, has proven to be
the premier stage-setting forum for the policy debates that will challenge
the new session of Congress. State of the Net is the only conference
well-recognized for its balanced blend of viewpoints from academics,
consumer groups, industry and government.

The 2008 conference will continue to bring technology to the forefront of
the policy debate, while adding in new developments, perspectives, and ideas
to further supplement discussions. The full-day event will incorporate
keynote addresses by prominent speakers and concurrent breakout sessions
featuring tech policy experts covering various topics of concern.

The State of the Net Conference offers unparalleled opportunities to
dialogue and engage on key policy issues. Participate in lively debates
exploring privacy/security, telecommunications regulation, intellectual
property and innovation, youth online safety, Internet governance and more.
