QMIPRI Conference - 18 February - Don't Miss Out!

The Queen Mary Intellectual Property Research Institute (QMIPRI) is hosting its inaugural annual conference, Monday 18 February 2008, in the New Connaught Rooms, London.

The Conference will look at the general theme of "Intellectual Property Strategies", opening with "Matters of the Moment" (chaired by IPKat's very own, Jeremy Phillips!) followed by an examination of "Strategy" through the key concepts of Use, Innovation and Access.

The day concludes with the very special event, the Herchel Smith Public Lecture 2008, to be presented by Professor Rochelle Dreyfuss (pictured at left) of NYU Law School and the American Law Institute (ALI). Professor Dreyfuss will present on the ALI's project on transnational intellectual property disputes and the impact on patent litigation.

More information and schedule for the day can be found at the Conference Website, including the full programme of 20 speakers from practice, industry, government, academia and consumer groups. The Conference is kindly sponsored by Olswang, Procter & Gamble and Kilburn & Strode.

There is still time to register for the event and join the glitterati of intellectual property, just download the registration form and return to QMIPRI.
