As reported by the newly redesigned madisonian.net, the annual Works in Progress Intellectual Property (WIPIP) conference will be held at Seton Hall University School of Law on February 22-23, 2013, and the third annual Patent Conference (PatCon 3) will be held at at the IIT Chicago-Kent College of Law on April 12-13, 2013. The deadline to present at WIPIP was December 17; the deadline for PatCon is February 4.
I'm planning to attend both conferences, discussing the use of Google results as evidence in offline trademark disputes at WIPIP (to be posted on SSRN soon!), and a comparison of different innovation incentive mechanisms (including R&D tax credits) at PatCon. If blog readers will be at either or both, let me know!
