Call for Papers

Topics of interest

We are interested in papers in any field. However, we would prefer not to have whole sessions along the traditional patent, copyright, trademarks divide. Some people have highlighted particular interest in: IP and food, including geographical indications; empirical studies on IP; and history of IP. We think these would make great sessions, but are open to other ideas.
