The hearing sessions scheduled for November 6 - 8, 2006 are open to the public. No pre-registration is required for attending the hearings in person.
Members of the public may also participate in the public hearings by viewing the live webcast, which will be available through the www.ftc.gov/techade website on November 6 - 8, 2006.
The FTC is also hosting its first ever blog in conjunction with the Tech-ade hearings, which is located at http://www.ftcblog.gov/techade/ and is accessible through this website. Members of the public are encouraged to comment on the blog entries and to submit any questions on the subjects being covered at Tech-ade to our blogger. The Tech-ade Blog will also be featuring "Ask the Expert" blog entries in the weeks leading up to the hearings. These will provide an opportunity for members of the public to have their questions about Tech-ade related topics answered by experts working in those fields. Please check the blog for further details.
