The hard-working organisers of the excellent and much awaited SCRIPTed conference have written to let me know that there are only a small number of places left, so get thee to the registration page ASAP! The programme is looking extremely good, but I am biased because I am chuffed at being in the last panel with Lilian Edwards and TJ McIntyre.
The keynote speakers are:
- Professor Bartha Maria Knoppers, University of Montreal, Montreal, Canada
“Population Biobanks: International Collaboration and Access”
- Professor Jon Bing, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway
“The computerisation of legal decisions”
- Mr Antony Taubman, World Intellectual Property Organization, Geneva, Switzerland (new director of the WTO IP Division)
“Centripetal and Centrifugal Trends in International Governance of IP”
There will also be a workshop on software patents / computer implemented inventions the day after the conference, so if you are interested email me to reserve a space.
