This is the call for contributions for the VI edition of the Annual
Computer Law World Conference, which will take place from the 4-8
September 2006 in the School of Law at the University of Edinburgh.
The conference brings together legal academics and practitioners from
around the world to consider and debate all aspects of information
technology law. Previous years’ conferences have fostered links
between educational institutions and legal practices across the
globe, reaching out to a wider international audience each year.
About the Conference:
The World Computer Law Conference was created as a response to the
many challenges presented by the dynamic environment known as the
Information Society. The event was initiated by Alfa-Redi, a Latin
American civil society organisation, and the previous five events
have run successfully in Quito (Ecuador 2001), Madrid (Spain 2002),
Havana (Cuba 2003), Cusco (Peru 2004), and Santo Domingo (Dominican
Republic 2005). In 2006 the event returns to Europe, hosted by the
Research Centre for Studies in Intellectual Property and Technology
Law at the University of Edinburgh.
The VI Computer World Conference will focus on the understanding that
the Information Society is one of the most important technological
developments of the present time, and as such it presents unique
regulatory challenges that must be discussed by informed academics
and proactive practitioners. The conference is centred on practical
issues, but also it will analyse the most pressing policy problems
seen through the strictest theoretical perspective.
