Barbara van Schewick speaking at Open Video Conference

Communications scholar Barbara van Schewick, of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society, has joined the speaker lineup for this year’s Open Video Conference. Barbara will share insights on video innovation and the architecture of the web, based on her recent book Internet Architecture and Innovation. The book has earned widespread acclaim (including praise from figures like Lawrence Lessig, who called it “the very best” analysis of its kind).

Barbara’s research focuses on the economic, regulatory, and strategic implications of communication networks. In particular, she explores how changes in the architecture of computer networks affect the economic environment for innovation and competition on the Internet, and how the law should react to these changes. This work has made her a leading expert on the issue of network neutrality.

Professor van Schewick is the Faculty Director of Stanford Law School’s Center for Internet and Society and an assistant professor of electrical engineering (by courtesy) at Stanford’s Department of Electrical Engineering.

Join us this October 1-2 in New York City to hear from Barbara and many others about innovation and the web.
