The Petrie-Flom Center for Health Law Policy, Biotechnology, and Bioethics at Harvard Law School presents its annual conference, Big Data, Health Law, and Bioethics, May 6-7, 2016. This year’s conference is organized in collaboration with the Berkman Center for Internet and Society at Harvard University and the Health Ethics and Policy Lab, University of Zurich. Abstracts should be submitted as soon as possible, but no later than Dec. 1, 2015.
In an effort to encourage interdisciplinary and international dialogue, we welcome submissions from legal scholars and lawyers, of course, but also from bioethicists, philosophers, scholars of computer and other information sciences, sociology, government officials and staff, international scholars and regulators discussing how their systems have handled these issues in ways that the US may learn from, and others who have a meaningful contribution to make on this topic. We welcome submissions from advocacy organizations, think tanks, and others outside academia, but emphasize that this is a scholarly conference, and abstracts/papers will be held to academic standards of argumentation and support.
