    Title

    International Regulations of Space Communications: Current Issues

    Description

    This session addresses the challenges related to the present international system of frequency allocations and the “reservation” of orbital slots for space communications, and is intended to examine how or whether they are met in the World Conference of International Telecommunications (WCIT) to be convened in December 2012. Papers are invited to examine and deliberate on the wording of the ITU Constitution and Convention and the International Telecommunications Regulations (ITRs), with special regard to registration procedures. Moreover, papers are invited to address specific issues such as the liability for damage and loss caused by the use of satellite based services or new developments in the relevant legislation of regional structures, such as the European Union. Finally, papers could discuss whether the WCIT supports future changes in markets, services and technologies consistent with the requirements of a highly dynamic industry.
