Not of interest to all of our readers, but I'm hosting a works in progress workshop at Wharton at the end of January. If you've got something on international economic law, I hope you'll consider submitting it.
The ASIL International Economic Law Interest Group will hold a works-in-progress workshop on Friday, January 29, in Philadelphia, at the Wharton School. If you are interested in presenting a paper at the workshop, please submit an abstract by the end of the day on November 31st, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please place “IECLIG Works in Progress submission”
in the subject line of your submission. Abstracts can range from a paragraph in length to a page, and should include the author's name and institutional affiliation. Papers should relate to the study of international economic law, broadly construed, be it related to private ordering, trade, investment, finance, or any of the other subjects that constrain the way that business is done across borders. The workshop is designed to offer a resource for those who cannot attend our December Heidelberg workshop done in conjunction with ESIL, to help scholars prepare for the February publication cycle, and to continue to broaden and deepen the interest group's intellectual community.
Papers selected for presentation will need to be submitted on January 15th; they will be circulated to the attendees of the workshop. Attendees will accordingly be able to comment on all of the papers during the workshop, and may also be given responsibility to lead the discussion of one of them in particular. One need not present a paper or comment on a paper to participate. As is the norm for workshops sponsored by ASIL interest groups, participants will need to cover their own travel expenses. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions about the workshop or paper submissions.
