Interested participants are encouraged to submit an abstract of no more than 500 words via the dedicated online form.
Abstracts must be written in English.
The deadline for submission is June 20th, 2022.
Submissions will be considered by the conference’s convenors and the members of the Centre, based on an assessment of their quality, their relevance to the Centre’s interests, and the need to cover a diverse range of topics representing a variety of perspectives and backgrounds.
Final decisions on acceptance will be notified by July 25th, 2022.
If selected, authors will be asked to submit a complete draft by September 15th, 2022 for circulation among the speakers.
Publication plans will be discussed at the end of the conference. However, we welcome proposals and papers intended for publication elsewhere.
The conference will take place on September 30th, 2022, in a face-to-face format at the IE Tower in Madrid, Spain.
Thematic sessions will be organized (public law, private law, law and tech, labor law, law and policy, data science, among others). Presentations will be organized into chaired panels and the presentation time for each participant will be 15/20 minutes.
There are no registration fees.
The costs for lunches and coffee breaks will be covered by the organization.
Early-stage researchers who cannot afford travel expenses can apply for a travel grant, indicating the envisaged costs.
Side activities will be organized, including city tours of Madrid and Segovia.
