The Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology (Stanford LST) at Stanford Law School will host the 16th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference (IPSC) on August 11th and 12th, 2016. All relevant information is available at http://conferences.law.stanford.edu/ipsc2016/. The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Intellectual Property Program, Benjamin N. Cardozo School of Law at Yeshiva University; the Center for Intellectual Property Law and Information Technology, DePaul University College of Law; and Stanford LST.
The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress and to listen to and discuss others’ works. The format of the conference is designed to facilitate open discussion and to help scholars hone their ideas. Papers presented should be works-in-progress that can benefit from the input provided by IPSC attendees.
Requests to Present: Requests to present should be submitted through the on-line registration system no later than May 15, 2016, at http://conferences.law.stanford.edu/ipsc2016/registration/. Every effort will be made to accommodate full-time IP scholars who submit a request by the deadline. Final decisions on requests to present will be made by June 1, 2016, and a wait-list will be created if necessary. Final abstracts and papers will be due August 1, 2016. Let us know if you would like to be considered for a presentation at the plenary session.
Requests to Attend: Stanford LST welcomes attendance by full-time academics who would like to participate in discussions but do not plan to present their own work. Requests to attend but not to present also should be made through the conference registration site by May 15, 2016, at http://conferences.law.stanford.edu/ipsc2016/registration/.
There is no registration fee for the conference. Breakfast and lunch will be provided on both days. There will also be a conference dinner on August 10th.
