The Searle Center on Law, Regulation, and Economic Growth invites papers for the Eleventh Annual Conference on Innovation Economics. The conference will be held June 21-22, 2018. “The goal of this conference is to provide a forum where economists and legal scholars can gather together with Northwestern’s own distinguished faculty to present and discuss high-quality research relevant to intellectual property (IP), technology standards, innovation, and entrepreneurship.”
Paper submission deadline: Feb. 5, 2018. Submit papers to firstname.lastname@example.org. Abstracts, incomplete papers, or proposals will not be accepted. The papers should not be either published or forthcoming. Authors of each accepted paper will receive an allotted speaker fee of $1,500 per paper, regardless of the number of authors. If more than one author attends the conference, the honorarium or travel reimbursement can be divided equally between the attending authors.
The Searle Center will also reserve and pay for hotel accommodations for attending authors and discussants for the nights of June 20-21, 2018. Authors are expected to attend and participate in the full duration of the conference.
Notification Deadline: Authors will be notified of decisions on or around March 21, 2018.
