How will the legal issues surrounding the “Internet of Bodies” differ from the “Internet of Things”? How should regulatory agencies approach these phenomena? What inspires people to “hack” their own bodies? These issues and more will be explored by a diverse panel of legal and non-legal scholars.”

The Global Fellows Program brings academics, practitioners, government officials and postdoctoral scholars from around the world to NYU for up to one year to conduct and present their research for future publication.

The principal objective of the Global Fellows Program at NYU School of Law is the production of scholarship through the advancement of research. We have a notable history of hosting distinguished scholars, judges, lawyers and government officials who wish to spend time advancing their scholarship and engaging in the intellectual life of the Law School. Fellows are welcome to participate in academic activities such as fora, lectures, colloquia, seminars and conferences. They are also invited to various social events, including some organized specifically for global fellows and others aimed at the broader community.

Through the Global Fellows Forums, Global Fellows share their research with colleagues, students, and faculty and receive comment and feedback. In this way, they contribute to the intellectual life of the Law School and provide an opportunity for the community to learn about current law research from a global perspective and in a wide range of topics. The primary goal of the Global Fellows Program is the enhancement of research and it is expected that participation in the Program will result in a substantial publishable piece of scholarship.

CFP Deadline: InfoSocial 2019 - Grad Conference - Evanston, IL

Northwestern University‘s InfoSocial 2019 conference will be held April 12-13, 2019 at Northwestern’s Evanston Campus. The topic for 2019 is Communications for Change in the Digital Age.

InfoSocial is a student-run conference dedicated to showcasing interdisciplinary graduate student research examining the role of technology in contemporary society. InfoSocial brings together graduate students in fields ranging from Computer Science to Communication to Law to showcase their novel ideas, methods, and innovations.

This year, we seek to initiate discussions about the design and implementation of technologies and ways that they institute change. We ask that you include a final paragraph in your abstract that articulates how your work connects to communication for change in the digital age. For example, does your work point to new ways of using technology, or ways that communication might promote social change?

This topic is intentionally broad: it might involve taking a critical view of existing technology, designing or adapting technology for civic purposes, or how technologies can enable a ‘better’ future. These are topics we believe are critical for those who work in this area to consider.

To submit to InfoSocial 2019, please prepare an anonymized extended abstract that explains your research. Please include your methodological approaches and a paragraph about the ethical and/or societal implications of your work (more specifics in the paragraph above). Abstracts should be no longer than 4 pages, double-spaced (references, figures, and tables not included toward page limit). Please format your abstract in either APA or ACM SIGCHI style. You can find example templates using Word and Latex on the SIGCHI website. When you have finalized your abstract, submit it through the InfoSocial submission portal. The submission portal will be open from December 1st, 2018 to January 19, 2019.

More information is available on the website.
