Call for Papers/Participation: 7th Annual Internet Law Works-in-Progress, SCU, March 4, 2017
The conference enables Internet law scholars from around the world to receive feedback about their in-process research from their academic peers. We broadly construe what topics fit under the Internet Law umbrella. More background about the series.
The conference has three categories of participation:
* papers-in-progress. Category 1 papers are drafts that are far enough along to benefit from peer feedback but still early enough to accommodate substantial feedback. They have the following attributes: (1) the paper draft is submitted no later than February 15, 2017, noon Pacific time (no extensions!), and (2) as of March 4, 2017, the draft has not been circulated/accepted for publication or posted to SSRN or a similar site. Category 2 papers are due at the same time, but they will have been circulated/accepted for publication or posted to SSRN or a similar site prior to March 4, 2017, which means they may not incorporate substantial peer feedback as easily. We may allocate additional presentation time to Category 1 papers; and we may allocate less time to Category 2 papers and/or require that they be presented by a third-party commenter instead of the author.
Each participant may make only one presentation at the conference. If you seek an exception to this rule, contact me ASAP.
How to Participate
If you would like to participate, email Eric Goldman (firstname.lastname@example.org) the following information by the priority deadline of November 13, 2016, noon Pacific time:
* your name, email address and institutional affiliation
* your preferred category of participation, including (if applicable) your anticipated paper category
* the title of your project (if applicable)
* if you would be willing to serve as a commentator-presenter for someone else’s paper (if we create such roles)
We expect to reply to participation requests by November 17, 2016. We will accommodate participation requests after the priority deadline on a space-available basis. However, in the past, requests after the priority deadline have initially gone onto a waitlist, so don’t delay!
The conference’s game nights have included PowerPoint karaoke, Dungeons & Dragons, Cards Against Humanity and more. Although the details aren’t finalized, we expect another game night to remember on March 4. Plan your travel schedule accordingly!
We look forward to seeing you in Santa Clara!
