Silicon Flatirons: Evidence-Based Spectrum Policy

Evidence-based policymaking is the process of using the best available research to make decisions at all stages of the policy process. While future spectrum-dependent technologies will provide unprecedented capabilities to everyone, this future comes with many challenges. Policy deliberations must consider the full range of potential outcomes, and decisions must be made on the best information available. When necessary, additional research and analysis must be defined and conducted to generate missing evidence.

This online conference will explore the process of evidence-based policymaking, and the needs of different kinds of spectrum-dependent services: sharing between different “active” services (e.g., cellular and radar); sharing between services that are “active” and “passive” (e.g., Wi-Fi and radio astronomy or remote sensing); and services and systems dependent on Position/Navigation/Timing (PNT) (e.g., electric power distribution, finance).

The program will be split over two days, Tuesday 10/13 and Thursday 10/15, starting at 10 am Mountain Daylight Time (noon Eastern). Each half-day will include a keynote and two panels and will close with virtual breakout rooms where attendees can interact with speakers and each other in small groups.
