The Murray State University Center for Telecommunications System Management and Kentucky Public Service Commission are combining forces to host a regional conference in Murray next month.
A news release says the chief economist of the Federal Communications Commission is among several national experts on the program for a regional conference on the telecommunications industry October 9th.
Dr. Steve Wildman of the FCC will discuss federal planning for the transition of most telecommunication services to the Internet. Other topics for the one-day conference include network security and resiliency, the next generation of 911 services and the use of social media.
Kentucky PSC Chairman David Armstrong will share a panel with regulators from neighboring states to discuss varying state approaches to oversight of the telecommunication industry.
The summit is open to regulators, industry officials and members of the academic community. There is no registration fee and the event will be at the Curris Center on the campus of Murray State.
