The work-in-progress event was created for internet law scholars to receive feedback about their papers and projects from their academic peers. Last year over 30 leading internet law academics convened at Santa Clara Law to participate in this inaugural event. The organizers take a broad view of what constitutes "internet law" scholarship, and this year will be no different. We welcome all types of scholarly approaches (doctrinal, theoretical, empirical, etc.) and offer three ways to participate in the event:
Papers-in-Progress Presentation: This track is
for paper drafts sufficiently advanced to share with event attendees. We
anticipate giving extra speaking time to these presentations. To
qualify for these slots, you will need to send a paper draft no later than
Friday March 2, 2012. If we have to prioritize presentation requests
based on capacity constraints, we plan to give greater priority to papers
earlier in the drafting process that will most benefit from peer
feedback, i.e., (a) papers that have not been circulated to publication
venues will get higher priority than (b) papers that have been
circulated to publication venues but do not yet have a publication
commitment, which will get higher priority than (c) papers that have
been accepted for publication.
Projects-in-Progress Presentation: This track is for
research projects without a paper draft for attendees to review in
advance. This might occur because your paper draft isn’t ready
to share (or does not arrive before the March 2, 2012. cutoff) or
because you would like to explore a paper idea before writing a
draft. We intend to allocate less speaking time for these presentations
than for papers-in-progress presentations.
Discussant: Space permitting, we welcome other scholars to join the conversation as active audience participants.
There is no event participation fee, but all participants are responsible for their own travel expenses. There are no publication obligations associated with presenting at the event.
So that we have an idea of the numbers, could you please let us know by November 30 if you think that you're going to be submitting a paper or would like otherwise to attend. This is not a binding commitment, but will help us plan space and timing. Papers, expressions of interests and queries can be sent to:
