Scope and background:
The 5th Workshop on Regulatory Challenges in the Electronic Communications Market is organized within the scope of the 13th International Conference on Telecommunications – ConTEL 2015 in Graz, Austria. It is a full-day event comprising a section consisting of peer-reviewed regular papers (conference “special session”), and a round table entitled “The role of the national regulatory authority in the implementations of the Digital Agenda for Europe”. The workshop is open for submission of full papers to the special session and short contributions to the round table, to address a broad range of topics related to regulatory aspects of electronic communications networks and services, and the implementation of the Digital Agenda.
The topics of interest include:
The series of workshops on regulatory challenges in the electronic communications market was initiated at the SoftCOM 2011 International Conference on Software, Telecommunications and Computer Networks. The workshop was initially named “The Electronic Communications Regulatory Challenges – Experiences from the Looking to the Future 2020 Project,” referring to the collaborative project led by the Croatian Regulatory Authority for Network Industries HAKOM, and involving several Croatian universities, as well as representatives of telecommunication industry and network operators. The 2015 workshop will be the first to use an international venue, aiming to strengthen the international dimension of the workshop series and to reach out to a broader audience.
