Sydney 2018

Sydney 2018

3-4 JULY 2018

Kindly hosted by the University of Technology Sydney

We are delighted to be working in partnership with our Australia Chapter to shine a spotlight on several of the IIC’s core discussion themes, but with an Australasian flavour. Regulators, industry, academia and civil society from the region will convene to share views on the role of regulation in today’s world – with international speakers and delegates providing comparisons and regional experiences. The University of Technology Sydney will provide the perfect stimulus for lively discussions on the disruptive potential of new technologies including artificial intelligence, blockchain and the Internet of Things.

 

Opening Keynote: Exploring Contemporary Policy and Regulatory Approaches in Australia, UK and US
Professor Robert G. Picard, Reuters Institute for the Study of Journalism, University of Oxford, a globally renowned specialist on media economics and government media policies.
