Our Approach to Presentations
The Law via the Internet community now reaches significantly beyond the academic community where open access to law began. LVI 2012 is meant to be a place for interaction and discussion among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers situated in universities, in private industry, in government, in non-profit settings outside universities, and wherever people who work with open access to law can be found.
For that reason, we are soliciting presentations in addition to papers. Both approaches will be considered equally in the selection process.
Please read the Track Descriptions to learn what themes are being explored and decide under which Track your submission should be considered. Bear in mind that the conference chairs and organizers reserve the right to move your submission to a different track for reasons of thematic continuity or scheduling. Submission and review of proposals and abstracts will be coordinated through our registration site.
Proposals and/or abstracts are due by April 2, 2012. The more details you can provide, the better. You will be notified of the chair’s decisions no later than May 1, 2012.
To Propose a Presentation
Please submit a 400-500 word description of your presentation, which may take any form: moderated panel discussion, single speaker, or multiple speakers.
Please provide names and biographic information on each person who will participate in your presentation.
If your presentation is accepted, we would appreciate sharing either the text of your presentation, or the slides or other materials you may be using, so that it can be shared with conference attendees who may not have been able to attend your specific session. All presentations will be video recorded and available for download after the conference.
If for purposes of funding or travel, you need your presentation to be peer reviewed, we will provide it.
To Submit a Paper
Those wishing to submit papers should submit a 400-500 word abstract or a first draft.
Accepted papers will be published in PDF format on the conference website. We are not currently planning to create a printed volume of proceedings.
