The Cable Center will host an Academic and Cable Telecommunications (ACT) Forum on June 13 and 14, during the NCTA Cable Show in Chicago. The ACT Forum is being coordinated in association with the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), which is promoting collaboration between the cable industry and academia. (For more, click here). The ACT Forum is designed to build bridges between cable and higher education and provide an opportunity for national college academics to interact with cable industry leaders and professional colleagues.

The Cable Center’s ACT Forum allows members of the academic and cable communities the opportunity to discuss key issues and trends in the cable telecommunications industry in an intimate setting. Sessions will focus on current issues of interest and importance to the industry, with topics ranging from general industry and legislative overviews to the relationship between programmers and operators, emerging technologies, and social media. Attendees will also receive a complementary visit to Motorola’s Innovation Center in Libertyville, IL, (separate registration is required), and a special guided tour of the Cable Show exhibit floor.

Academics are also invited to share their original research in cable and telecommunications with a Call for Research Papers/Abstracts in all areas, including economics, law and policy, engineering and technology, finance, audience studies, social effects, history, marketing, management, programming and international telecommunications.  Papers are due no later than March 1, and should be submitted to Dr. Ron Rizzuto at the University of Denver,
