The Program in Law, Science & Technology at Stanford Law School will host the Sixteenth Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference on August 11-12, 2016.
The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress in order to benefit from the critique of colleagues. The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, UC Berkeley School of Law; the Intellectual Property Law 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 the Stanford Program in Law, Science & Technology, Stanford Law School.
We expect that IPSC 2016 will include both plenary and “break out” sessions. IPSC 2016 will accept presentation requests on all IP-related topics, including but not limited to Copyright, Trademark and Unfair Competition Law, Patent, Trade Secret, Cyberlaw, and Innovation Law Beyond IP.
The IPSC format is designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help scholars hone their ideas. Papers presented are works in progress that can benefit from substantial commentary and revision. Because of the importance of group discussion, we ask that attendees and presenters plan to stay for the entire conference.
