Overview: Learn how mobility is changing families, education and work in America.
If you are a mobile marketer, application developer or investor – this is your chance to interact with leaders who have the research and real world experience to tell you how mobile phones are changing the way we live, work and play.

Now that cell phones have come to play a prominent part in family life it is worth considering how this technology is affecting the American family and interpersonal relationships.

This question is important because we are increasingly communicating and coordinating via mobiles, and social relationships are thereby modified. The question is also important because policymakers are looking at cell phones both with an eye to control and address critical social problems ranging from education to public safety.

At this Mobile Monday event, we will review data from a range of sources including surveys, case studies, interviews and news reports to identify trends in the way mobile phones are used in family life. Parent-child relationships, to social integration and peer socialization will all be explored.

Our panelists are both research and real world experts how mobile is being used today and how it will be used in the future.
