Rohan Samarajiva will make a presentation entitled, ‘Small Screen, Big Scream: How much has the mobile really delivered, how much more to come?’ at the International Institute of Communications Annual Conference to be held from 3-4 November 2008, in Hong Kong. The event is co-hosted by the Broadcasting Authority and the Office of the Telecommunications Authority, Hong Kong.

Themed, ‘Trends in Global Communications: Capturing the High Ground in an Uncertain World’, the conference seeks to examine the impact of current trends and twists in the telecom market, against the backdrop of developing regulatory policy and the inevitably huge demands of infrastructure investments.

Some of the questions the conference hopes to address are:

  • What new scenarios will tomorrow’s broadband, internet, mobile and media markets present for business, government, regulators and consumers?
  • How can critical bottlenecks in broadband development be overcome?
  • What does increasing competition from broadband mean for traditional media services?
  • What are the implications for content of a multi-platform, on-demand environment?
  • Where will new creative ideas and the funding to deliver them come from?
  • How are public policy and regulatory frameworks evolving?
  • To what extent will they be ‘fit for purpose’ in the newly emerging environment
