BILETA 2009, April 21-23, Winchester

And more!!

BILETA 2009 - The 24th Annual Conference

Tuesday 21 - Thursday 23 April 2009
Hosted by the University of Winchester Law School

"To Infinity and Beyond: Law and Technology in Harmony?"

Technology impacts increasingly on all areas of our lives, from e-commerce to e-learning. This year's annual conference focusses on the ways in which law and technology can move forward operating in harmony across the spectrum. Papers will fall into a wide range of categories including:

  • Intellectual property - including copyright, open source etc
  • E-learning
  • E-commerce
  • Virtual worlds / SNS
  • Intermediaries - IP providers
  • Infrastructure - including regulation and computer misuse
  • Privacy and data-protection
  • Cybercrime - including criminological aspects
  • Legal theory and critical perspectives
  • New technologies
The deadline for the call for Papers is 31 January 2009 and we would still like more, particularly from non UK speakers. Pangloss is part of the Programme Committee and will be there, probably giving a paper on (guess what!!) either phishing or suicide websites :-)

Winchester is a beautiful city , especially in April, and this should be a fun and exhilarating conference. The conference dinner wil take place in the grounds of Winchester Cathedral - not to be missed!

The keynote speakers are :

Jeremy Phillips, Intellectual Property Consultant with Olswang, Solicitors and Research Director of the Intellectual Property Institute, and the well known leader of the IP-KAT team.,


Dr Richard Clayton of the Cambridge Computer Laboratory, University of Cambridge 'It’s time to repeal Internet Legislation'
