This conference is a collaborative effort with the Department of Communication and the Confucius Institute at Texas A&M University (which provides considerable funding for the event). Professor Peter Yu of Texas A&M University School of Law co-founded the conference in May 2003 to closely examine not only the internet's impact on China but also China's impact on the internet.
The final program is available at http://law.tamu.edu/faculty-staff/news-events/conferences-and-symposia/circ-15.
The conference includes panelists from the United States, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, and the United Kingdom. The event is open to the public and will cover a wide variety of internet-related topics. It will also touch on many disciplines, from law to communication studies and from political science to international relations.
This year celebrates the conference's 15th anniversary. In the past, the event has been held at USC, Berkeley, Penn, Peking, Georgetown, Oxford, and other leading universities. Harvard has also expressed interest in holding the event in the future. The last time Texas A&M University hosted this event was 10 years ago.
