About the 5th Annual IPSC

August 11-12, 2005
Cardozo School of Law

55 Fifth Avenue @12th Street

New York, NY 10003

The Intellectual Property Law Program at Cardozo School of Law, Yeshiva University, will host the 5th Annual Intellectual Property Scholars Conference on August 11-12, 2005. The IPSC conference brings together intellectual property scholars to present their works-in-progress, as well as providing young scholars with networking opportunities and allows them to benefit from advice and guidance offered by veteran academics.

IPSC 2005 will include both plenary and "break out" sessions, allowing scholars to choose whether to present their works-in-progress in smaller group settings or before the larger conference group. The conference will have space for 8-10 plenary presentations and, depending on interest, approximately 18 presentations in the smaller sessions which will run on parallel tracks. To the extent possible, break-out sessions will be scheduled in thematic clusters and avoid obvious topic or interest "conflicts."

The IPSC format is designed to facilitate free-ranging discussion and to help people hone their ideas. Papers presented should be works in progress that can benefit from substantial commentary and revision. Because of the importance of group discussion, we ask that attendees and presenters plan to stay for the whole conference.

The conference is co-sponsored by the Berkeley Center for Law and Technology, Boalt Hall School of Law; the Center for Intellectual Property, Law and Information Technology, DePaul College of Law; and the Stanford Program in Law, Science and Technology, Stanford Law School.

There is no charge to attend the conference.  Conference participants (including paper presenters) are expected to pay for transportation and lodging.  Cardozo will announce special hotel price arrangements for August 10-13 shortly.

Cardozo School of Law will provide complementary food and drink throughout the conference, including the IP Scholars Dinner on Thursday, August 11, 2005 (spouses or significant others are welcome to attend the dinner).

IPSC 2005 will accommodate as many scholars as possible, but we reserve the right to limit the conference to 28 presentations [total] and 50 participants.
