The International Rules for Telecommunications (ITRs) are to be revised at the next World Conference on International Telecommunications (WCIT-12) due to be held in Dubai in December. This will be an opportunity to adapt the ITRs to better reflect today’s telecoms market and the innovation that has occurred since 1988, when the rules were last negotiated. The workshop is organised by the European Telecommunications Network Operators' Association (ETNO) in cooperation with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). Keynote speakers will come from the ITU, the Internet Society (ISOC), the Council of Europe, the European Commission and the American Embassy in Brussels.
