3rd Annual Roundtable on Empirical Methods in IP -- Call for Papers
Dave Schwartz (Northwestern) asked me to alter readers to the following and I am delighted to do so. Please note the Feb. 12 proposal deadline. Proposals (and any questions) should be directed to: CardozoIPIL@yu.edu
"We are pleased to announce the third annual Roundtable on Empirical Methods in Intellectual Property. Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law, Cardozo Law School, and the United States Patent & Trademark Office are negotiating an agreement to co-host the event. The roundtable will take place in Washington, DC at the USPTO on April 29-30, 2016.
The roundtable is intended 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.
The roundtable will be organized around a modest number of projects. Each project presenter will be expected to circulate a description of the project of no more than 10 pages by April 8. Each project will be assigned to an expert commenter and will be allotted 45 minutes of discussion by the attendees.
We welcome applications from scholars in the social sciences and law. Travel and lodging support for presenters will be provided.
Applications are due by February 12. We will notify applicants by March 1."
