Abstract: Internet Frontiers and Opportunities Workshop

Join the University of Chicago and University of California Santa Barbara in Chicago on November 15, 2021 for the Internet Frontier and Opportunities workshop. This invite-only workshop will bring together leaders in industry, academia, and government and provide an environment for robust discussion between experts in computer science, healthcare, education, public policy, and economics. 

The goal of the Internet Frontiers and Opportunities workshop is to create a bold shared vision for a center of innovation that will catalyze new ideas, collaborations, and solutions to counter Internet inequity at a global scale. It facilitates interdisciplinary work among researchers (faculty members, students, postdoctoral scholars) and practitioners (industry, government, non-profit). 

We will convene leaders from academia, industry, and government to discuss and define some of the most pressing challenges concerning Internet equity and create a vision and roadmap for launching a new collaborative approach to solving these challenges.
