Call for Papers: International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property 

Montpellier, France
JULY 6TH to 9TH, 2014

CALL FOR PAPERS
Submission Deadline: February 15th, 2014
Abstracts are invited for the Thirty Third International Congress of the International Association for the Advancement of Teaching and Research in Intellectual Property

Theme: Intellectual Property Perspectives on the Regulation of New
Technologies The Congress is organized around the theme of Intellectual Property Perspectives on the Regulation of New Technologies. The overarching objective of the Congress is to discuss the challenges that emerging technologies and new technology-driven practices pose for intellectual property law and policy. This Congress will explore perspectives across the IP law spectrum, including some that are long-standing (e.g., patenting in the life sciences, open innovation and regulation through code) and some that are more recent (e.g. social media, the new GTLDs and nanotechnology). The programme will consist of eight panels to be
conducted in plenary for 90 minutes, comprised by a chairperson and 4 to 5 speakers. Parallel breakfast sessions will also form part of the programme, depending upon levels of interest. The theme is drafted in general terms so as to encourage maximum participation
and attendance. Papers are welcome on any topic related to this broad workshop theme. Suggested themes for papers include, but are not limited to the following:

* the integration of intelligent technologies into existing intellectual property frameworks;

* reconciling IP law and policy with conflicting moral positions (for example around biotech innovations);

* technology neutrality and IP law;

* digital exploitation and the collective management of copyright in an interconnected globalised world;

* new digital uses and IP law limitations (e.g. user-generated content, text and data mining, trademarks in metatags)

* data aggregation, database protection and competition law;

* technological advancement and its impact on the development agenda;

* the impact of the new GTLDs on trademark law and practice;

* jurisdictional barriers to the regulation and enforcement of rights; and

* the impact of network fragmentation on IP law and practice.

Please send the (provisional) title of your proposed paper and an abstract (500 words maximum) to Tana Pistorius at pistot@unisa.ac.za on or before the 15th of February 2014. Submissions will be reviewed by the Programme Committee and authors will be notified of the status of their submissions by the 5th of March 2014.
We look forward to welcoming you to the 33rd Annual Congress of ATRIP.
