7th Gikii 2012 - call for papers!!
Call for Papers: 7th
Gikii Workshop, 17-18 September 2012
Still, if any
of these or the other many phenomena of the digital age in desperate need of
legal attention are digging a tunnel out of your brain, then send us an
abstract for the 7th Gikii workshop!
Maybe this year it will be your paper which contributes the seminal
GikII meme following in the honoured footsteps of LOLcats, flying penises, and
Gikii has run since 2006
in venues such as Edinburgh, Oxford, London, Amsterdam and Gothenberg with
attendees coming from Europe, the US, Canada, Australia, Japan, India and Latin
America. There is no conference fee, but attendees may be asked to contribute
to the conference dinner on 17thSeptember. If desired, we can suggest
London accommodation ranging from cheap to more expensive. This year’s Gikii is run with the kind
assistance of the Law School, University of East Anglia at their London centre,
and will commence at lunchtime Sep 17th running through to end
September 18th. These dates also offer
an opportunity to combine GikII with the 7th SCL Policy Forum
(details at http://www.scl.org/site.aspx?i=ev25696
) in what has been termed the “week of geek”.
Abstracts of no longer than 500 words should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org and "Karen
Mc Cullagh (LAW)" K.Mccullagh@uea.ac.uk by August 13th 2012. Acceptances will be announced shortly thereafter. A limited
number of places will be available for participants not giving papers, and preference
will be given for these to scholars (including postgraduate students) who have
not previously attended GikII. Registration for these places will open at
gikii.com when acceptance of abstracts is notified.
