**Workshop on Internet Economics**

This two-day workshop on Internet economics will be held in Cambridge, MA on
March 9-10, 1995 and will bring together technologists, economists, business
leaders and policy makers to discuss the Internet as an economic system as
this medium for communication, information dissemination, electronic commerce,
etc. grows.

The goals of this workshop are:  1) develop a framework for understanding the
Internet as a self-sustaining economic system through panels and facilitated
discussion, 2) reach consensus on recommendations for industry and government
action, and 3) identify critical issues for future research on Internet

Topics include (but are not limited to):
-  Information Technologies, their Interoperability and Productivity
-  Internet Engineering and Economics
-  Internet Resource Allocation:  Congestion and Accounting
-  Internet Pricing:  Interconnection, Settlements, and Resale
-  Future Directions for Internet Economics
-  Commerce and Information Security on the Internet

Draft papers will be accepted, given the short lead time, before the workshop.

Discussions are underway with MIT Press and the Sloan Foundation for a book on
Internet Economics including revised versions of the best papers presented at
the workshop.
