The Technology Policy Institute’s 2012 Aspen Forum will be held August 19 – 21 at the St. Regis Aspen Resort in Aspen, Colorado.


The TPI Aspen Forum brings together leaders from business, government, and academia to discuss key public policy issues affecting information and communications technology.  This year’s theme is “Washington, Silicon Valley and the 2012 Elections.”


A policy environment conducive to entrepreneurship and innovation has made the United States the global leader in the development of the Internet.  Policymakers now face critically important issues that could alter this policy climate.  Participants in the 2012 Aspen Forum will explore what the 2012 elections could mean for major technology issues, including broadband and spectrum policy, competition policy, privacy, cybersecurity, Internet governance and intellectual property.


Registration information and details on the agenda will be announced soon.  For additional information, contact Jane Creel at  Members of the press should contact Amy Smorodin at
