The second annual Roundtable on Empirical Methods in Intellectual Property, co-hosted by Chicago-Kent and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, will take place in Chicago, IL, on 19-20 September 2014.
The Roundtable seeks to give scholars engaging in empirical and experimental studies of IP a chance to receive feedback on their work at an early stage in their research. Accordingly, the Roundtable will be limited to a small cohort of scholars discussing projects that are still in their developmental stages. Projects that will have substantially begun data collection by the time of the Roundtable are inappropriate. Pilot data collection is, however, appropriate.
Those interested in proposing research projects will find specific application information here. Please note that applications are due by 1 August 2014.
