Dave Schwartz (Northwestern), along with his counterparts at Penn and Stanford law schools, are converging to launch a new Junior Faculty Forum focusing on "interdisciplinary scholarship focusing on the intersection of Law and Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM)." Penn Law (specifically, Penn's CTIC) will host the the inaugural Forum on October 6-7, 2017. Forum organizers currently seek paper submissions from interested junior faculty. The deadline for paper submissions is Friday, June 9, 2017.
Those with questions about the Forum should contact either Dave Schwartz (Northwestern), Christopher Yoo (Penn), or Mark Lemley (Stanford). The overlap with ELS Blog readers is potentially rich. As Dave notes, "while the field of law-STEM is somewhat ambiguous, it includes many topics related to ELS. For instance, predictive analytics, machine learning, and computational law all would be included."
