The Summer Doctoral Programme (SDP) is a joint effort of the Berkman Center and the Oxford Internet Institute, which provides top doctoral students from around the world with the opportunity to work for a few intensive weeks with leading figures in Internet research.

The program, in its fifth year, was hosted at Harvard Law School from July 16-27, 2007.

In an effort to provide access to the discussions and events while they took place, we offered an aggregator of participant - both students and faculty - blogs, photos, and more.

The 2007 SDP wiki is also available to view the schedule of events, syllabus and readings, presentations, and other materials accumulated over the two weeks.

An SDP H2O playlist has also been created for those interested in the materials suggested by participants.
