The IP Scholars Conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress and to listen 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 commentary and revision provided by participants in IPSC.

Requests to attend should be registered through the web form: http://tinyurl.com/yewjskl

Call for Presentations:

  • Requests to present should be submitted through this web form no later than May 3, 2010, by submitting an abstract of the work-in-progress.  Potential presenters should also indicate whether they would be willing to participate in one of the plenary panels at the conference. Every effort will be made to accommodate full-time IP scholars who submit a request by the deadline. Requests from research fellows, non-U.S. researchers, and practicing attorneys as well as late submissions will be considered to the extent that time and space permit.
  • Final decisions on requests to present will be made by May 26, 2010, and requestors will be notified at that time. Invitations to present a work at one of the plenary sessions of the conference will also be made at this time. A wait-list will be created in order to allow some speakers to be added in the event that selected presenters are unable to attend.
  • Final abstracts for inclusion in the conference binder and papers for posting on the conference website will be due July 31, 2010. Final papers and abstracts should be submitted to BCLT Microsoft Research Fellow Jonas Anderson, at janderson@law.berkeley.edu, and Assistant BCLT Director, David Grady, at dgrady@law.berkeley.edu.
