Other"Telecommunications at new crossroads: Changing value configurations, user roles, and regulation"

During the past decades, telecommunications and IT have gone through fundamental changes technologically, economically and politically resulting in new challenges and crossroads. Convergence between telecommunications, IT and the media has reached a stage where entirely new value configurations are taking shape. The role of users is also changing with the widespread growth of social networks and other user centred applications. These developments raise new policy and regulatory issues, such as the governance of content and services. Regulatory questions reappear in new forms in the infrastructure area with the development of next generation networks. Furthermore, ICTs are increasingly applied in relation to energy saving, health and environmental issues creating new business potentials as well as new regulator/policy challenges.
