|"6 May, INTA ..."|
This Kat is very pleased that the INTA holds its own academic programme, and he is delighted that a considerable number of academics now attend. In earlier times he campaigned for INTA to provide concessionary registration rates for academics, which they have done, and he has been impressed at the quality of the scholarship symposium, at which teachers and researchers in the field of trade mark law can share their ideas and their perspectives with practitioners and trade mark owners.Call For Papers: Fourth Annual INTA Trademark Scholarship SymposiumThe International Trademark Association (“INTA”) is pleased to host the Fourth Annual Trademark Scholarship Symposium during the 135th INTA Annual Meeting in Dallas, Texas. The Symposium will take place on Monday, May 6, 2013 as part of INTA’s Academic Day and is an opportunity for trademark scholars from around the world (including part-time and full-time professors, graduate and post-graduate students) to participate in small group discussions of scholarly works-in-progress. Each selected scholar will present their project in a workshop setting, receive comments, and engage in a dialogue with other academic scholars and accomplished trademark practitioners.Please send an abstract (approximately 300 words) describing a current trademark or unfair competition scholarship project to Signe H. Naeve at SNaeve@uw.edu by February 1, 2013. The Task Force will then select a maximum of 8 projects to be presented at the Symposium, grouped into related topics or themes. Selections will be announced by February 15, 2013. For each selected project, a working draft of the paper (10-20 pages) must be submitted by April 1, 2013.

This Kat hopes that his academic colleagues from afar will be able to attend in order to present papers based on their own final thoughts or on their work in progress, and urges them to do so if they can. Money is, however, an issue that cannot be diplomatically avoided by any organisation, particularly in times of financial slowdown. This Kat is also convinced that trade mark scholars from some of the world's poorest and least-resourced countries, where IP is little understood and even less appreciated, are likely both to gain more benefit and subsequently to impart it than are their colleagues from countries where trade mark law is almost a commonplace.
