The†Chicago-Kentís Center for Empirical Studies of Intellectual Property and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office present the first Workshop on Empirical Methods in Intellectual Property to be held October 11-12, 2013.

The workshop is intended to give scholars engaging in empirical and experimental studies of IP a chance to receive feedback on their work at an early stage in their research. Accordingly, the workshop will be limited to a small cohort of scholars discussing projects that are still in their developmental stages. Projects that will have substantially begun data collection by the time of the workshop are inappropriate. Pilot data collection is, however, appropriate.

The workshop will be organized around a modest number of projects. Each project presenter will be expected to circulate a description of the project of no more than 10 pages by October 1. Each project will be assigned to an expert commenter and will be allotted 45 minutes of discussion by the attendees.

Email submissions to Christi Guerrini (cguerrin[@]kentlaw.iit.edu) with the following information: Name Institutional Affiliation Title of Project Description of Project (<750 words) including the issues to be addressed and the empirical methods to be employed. Acknowledgement that the project will not have reached data collection by the time of the workshop.

Deadline: August 24, 2013 im
