Topic of this Year: Next Generation Applications and Services
‘Next Generation Applications and Services’ is the theme of the 2007 PhD summer school on the Political Economy of ICT.
The focus of the 2007 summer school is on the new and upcoming developments of interactive media and applications, which are accessible and to which users can contribute on the various converging mobile and fixed platforms. Among the issues taken up are mobile media, including mobile TV, social computing/Web 2.0, and IPTV. The technology trends will be explored and the business potentials examined. Furthermore, the policy and regulatory issues relating to the development of new IP-based applications and services will be analysed, including the proposed EU directive on Audiovisual Media Services (AVMS) and copyright regulations.
The approach taken in this PhD course is multidisciplinary, which means that the development of next generation IP applications and services will be analysed from the view point of the interrelationships between technology developments and the economic and political developments relating to the markets for new mobile and fixed IP-based applications and services.
